- Hand brake
- Parking brake.
It's not perfect (I'd give it a 4.5 if I could), but I'd recommend it in a heartbeat.
Also, because of a hand injury, I ended up getting a Weil knee walker, used, so I could get around both floors of my house. The Weil goes for more money, although I don't know if I am comparing the newest model on the Weil. That being said, I like this one better than the Weil.
It goes almost anywhere. I can do laps around the first floor of my house fast enough that my friends warn me to slow down. I have taken it on paved surfaces, the commuter train and subway.I would not recommend it for off paved surfaces. I have taken it across parking lots and on sidewalks. It handles fine, but has a wide turning radius, as opposed to the Weil which can really turn on a dime. The ride is rather bumpy across brickwork but still very practical. The rougher the surface, the slower one should go, particularly if it is not level. That advice, however, would apply to any assistive device. I feel steady and secure on this. The Weil is also steady and secure, it is a little longer and heavier, making it harder to transport and a little tough to push on carpet (my real problem with the Weil is I just can't get it to a comfortable set of adjustments).
The brake works well, and is especially useful going down ramps. The parking brake is somewhat less effective: it engages and certainly helps to keep the device still, but it can be moved with somewhat more effort than usual. The Weil also has a similar issue, so I think that's simply the way the brake works at any price point.Read more ›
I'm a very large person at 6'10" and 350 lbs so I needed something sturdy to help me get around after breaking my foot. Crutches are do-able but they tire me out quickly and make it very hard to get anything I need because of needing both hands to move about. This knee walker enables me to get around the house easily and be fairly comfortable while doing so. The basket helps me be less dependent on my wife to do simple things like get my own lunch, drinks, etc. It provides good stability and mobility for me and reduces the wife's fear I'm going to fall and break something else! It's not easy to navigate between our carpeting, tile, and floor rugs but if I'm careful and don't rush it works fine.
I'm not sure if they just didn't include assembly instructions or if it doesn't come with them but that's my only complaint about this product; lack of instructions and poor documentation. We managed to figure out how to get it assembled, but no where could we find how to set the parking break. Someone here answered that question but I'll repeat it because it's hard to find!
** To break you PULL the break handle, and to SET the parking break you PUSH the handle and it clicks and locks into place and locks the rear wheels. Pulling the handle will unlock the parking break once it's set. **
Overall I'm very happy with the Karman Knee Walker and would recommend it. I gave it 5 stars but if I could I'd have taken a 1/2 star away for bad documentation I would have. I hope this helps in your search for a good alternative to crutches.
I have a basket on mine which is a must. And, it's great that you can stop and sit on the knee rest if need be. And, thank goodness it has a brake.
So, for sturdy folk - I say get one. For someone elderly, anything other than inside, I'd reconsider.

This came in very handy during my ankle recovery. It does take a little bit of effort if using on carpeted flooring, but on hard surfaces it moves very well. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Amazon Customer
