Very sturdy and well built.
Uneven pavement, gravel, rocks, cracks, thresholds(such as entering buildings), even raised painted places in parking lots will violently throw the front wheels.

I would recommend anyone having foot surgery to get a knee walker.

About 4 weeks ago, I had foot/ankle surgery. This surgery involves no weight bearing for 8-16 weeks. Needless to say I was really concerned how I would continue to work and maintain some kind of active lifestyle using crutches or a traditional walker. I was pathetic and scary on a crutches and possibly would have broken another appendage. A traditional walker makes you hop on what is left of your good foot and so it also not practical. I asked my doctor, prior to surgery about the knee walker and he had limited knowledge of it , but said for me to try local medical appliance places. I ended up purchasing the Drive walker from Amazon after finding prices locally of $700-+$1000!. I have had dozens of people come up to me asking me where I got it, and how it looked so much better than crutches. Even the doctors office had never seen a steerable one. I tried the one that doesn't steer at a local store, and it was horrible. I can say without this device, I would be homebound. It has allowed my to return to work after less than a week from surgery ( no stairs, flat floors). I can still do most of my housework, laundry, making meals. I can go shopping, out to eat and even still go to the Y to roll on the indoor track and do upper body weight lifting. It is awesome for helping me get into the shower. I lock the brakes, balance on my bad leg and lift my good leg with the help of a shower handle(also purchased from Amazon), over the shower threshold, and sit down on a shower stool (also purchased from Amazon). The knee walker is incredibly stable, it has never tilted or tipped with me achieving this task. I also purchased a LED flashlight that attaches to the handle bars for late night trips in my house and also the Sunlite mesh bottom removable bicycle basket ( from amazon).Read more ›

I recently came into the world of "assisted walking" after a foot injury made me undergo surgery and strictly no weight bearing for 3 months. The traditional crutches I got from the local ED were adequate at first, but then, like many, I realized their true nature - medieval torture devices.

Enter the knee walker - I now own two - both by Drive Medical - and both bought here on Amazon. I have this 790 Steerable Knee Walker and the other best seller, Drive Medical's Universal Knee Walker. Both were SUPER easy to setup, both came well-packed in factory packaging. Most importantly, both of these are VERY SOLID and well built. I am 43yo, 240lb, and 6'0", and these knee walkers always feel solid and stable.

I thought I would add the reason I bought both - and it has to do with the steering. The non-steerable Universal Knee Walker is awesome for me to use around my home. It is a smaller profile device - great for smaller/tighter spaces, and is SUPER easy to use with one hand. This way, I can use my other hand to move and carry stuff and have been able to "get back in the game" with helping my saint of a spouse with our two kids, getting dinner on the table, etc. You can't really "steer," but you just stand up on your good leg and redirect the device in a new direction. The pad on the Universal is a bit thinner than the Steerable, but it's fine for daily use, and could easily be beefed up with a towel or extra pad if you wanted.

I use the Steerable 790 model to get around at work. I work in a hospital, and me and several colleagues have found the steerable model to be GREAT at covering long distances QUICKLY - you just always have to have TWO HANDS on the handlebars (I switched from a briefcase/messenger bag to a backpack for my laptop.) I can easily navigate the twists and turns of our hospital hallways, and I saved a BUNDLE here on Amazon compared to the same models in the brochures in my orthopedic surgeon's office...

The drive steerable knee walker is a complete lifesaver. I had foot surgery and ordered one to avoid having to live on crutches for weeks on end. It would have been nice had it come with a few instructions but I eventually did figure it out. The steering and brakes make it so versatile. The fact that you can thumb lock the breaks and use the device in place and then release it to move is just plain awesome. I'm 5'1 and a little on the short side for the lowest setting but really have nothing but great things to say about it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has suffered a foot injury or who is going to have surgery.

One note, make sure to have your own set of allen wrenches on hand, you will need them. The walker comes with one but it is only for locking down the steering column, it doesn't fit anything else. I used my own set to loosen up the back brakes as they were too tight, after that it worked great.

This is a great little steerable knee walker/scooter, and it is the least expensive too! Wow!

After I had Tailor bunion surgery on my right foot 2 months ago, I rented a TLC (Turning Leg Caddy) knee walker since I'd be in two kinds of casts for 6 weeks, and I will be having a second foot surgery on my left foot in 3 months after my right foot heals. This DRIVE Medical 790 Steerable Knee Walker is way superior to the TLC. I use my walker/scooter inside and outside. The main safety feature of this scooter is that the steering column is behind the front wheel axle. This is a stable design and keeps the rider from tipping over the handlebars when too much weight is applied to the handle bar. (Max. weight limit is listed at 300 lbs.)The older TLCs have the steering column attached in front of the front wheel axle! Bad design!! The TLC was always trying to "hunt" when steering(another stability flaw), and was always trying to tip me forward and catapult me off if too much weight was put on the handlebars, which is not hard to do! This is downright dangerous! TLC should recall that old design before their @ss is rightly sued.


-First of all, it folds up like other knee walkers, and it is lightweight, so you can fit it in your trunk, SUV or van for transport. And the seat height is adjustable, so you can raise or lower the seat height to match your kneeling height. The handlebar section of the steering column is also height adjustable.

I am listing the Drive's pros, but since I've used both the Drive Knee Walker and the TLC Knee Walker for a period of time, I'm also comparing the two.

-The Drive's frame has a nice pewter-colored powder coating and black matte painted steering column. The handlebars are a brushed chrome.
