"I'm very big, so I hold this would work for my broken ankle and foot in a walking cast. No weight bearing for at least 4 weeks, I was terrified. The Walker they gave me left me exhausted and in tears. The bigger tires are amazing for handling door jams and even speed bumps in parking lots. It does not turn tightly at all, I generally pick it up and turn it or turn it around completely. It's a bit heavy in that sense, but you get better at it and think of the upper body strength. It's very stable, the basket is a godsend. I recommend getting either the lamby cover or the memory foam, your knee will thank you. I recommend this, it has been the difference between functioning (with limitations) and being homebound."
