Drive Walkers

Updated on September 17, 2013

Drive Walkers - Knee Scooter

I'm sure for most of you visiting this lens for the first time, you are probably thinking:What Are Drive Walkers? Well basically put a medical Drive Walker will help you get around if you happen to of suffered from a lower leg, knee or ankle injury.

Drive Walkers are used the through-out the world and are designed as an alternative to the more traditional old-fashioned crutches or as an alternative to the more expensive and more cumbersome wheel-chair. The medical knee scooter might look like some sort of kids toy, but trust me when I say, it's far from a toy!

Check out the video on this Squidoo Lens to see for yourself how easy it is to use and to get around.

Drive Walkers

For me, I discovered about Drive walkers after I suffered an injury at work, when I badly twisted my ankle.

It meant I was unable to walk on it for a number of weeks. Sadly I also injured my left shoulder at the same time, which meant I was unable to use 'traditional" crutches as I was unable to support my body weight, which you need to do when using crutches.

However I am not a person that likes to be beaten. So I still spent a couple of days trying to move around using just one crutch but truth be told, I had very little luck. So I sat down and decided to search the internet and look for any ideas or other options which may help me.

It was whilst searching the internet that I discovered about Drive Walkers.


  • 8" steerable wheels - to help you get around both indoors and outdoors.
  • Adjustable Cushioned knee-pad - For Comfort.
  • 300lbs Weight Limit - Suitable for almost all shapes and sizes of men and women.
  • Lifetime Guarantee - For peace of mind.

However never a person to throw my cash away, I wanted to make sure that going out to buy this medical knee scooter was going to be money well spent. So I spent some time reading a number of other peoples reviews about the 790 and I am glad to say that it became very clear that this was the one to buy.

Trust me, they are not cheap, but at around $250 they are better priced than others that I found costing well over $1000. So not a bad price after all and as they say "You get what you pay for". Every review I read, people stated "what a lifesaver" or "couldn't live without it".

Each review also mentioned how easy it was to fold-away so that it could be transported in a car or even on public transport.

When in use, the rubber handles were very easy to grip.

Now obviously, you are always going to come across a few people who can't get on with it, especially something that is not really natural to use but at the end of the day everyone is entitled to an opinion, aren't they?

The only main draw back that I seemed to come across was the fact that it does need to be put together when it first arrives. Not always easy for everyone. However I don't think you can blame the overall product for that. Some people will probably find it far easier than offers.

Also some people initially found it difficult to steer with the large wheels. However I would say this is a major plus point myself as it allows getting the 790 around kerbs and side-walks far easier.

At the end of the day no one feels really comfortable unless they are walking on their own two feet. Using standard crutches is probably the worst aid that was ever invented, so as far as I am concerned Drive Walkers are a MUST!
