Steerable Knee Walker on iWalkFree 2.0

Steerable Knee Walker for Foot Surgery Recovery for Increased Maneuverability

Hands-free mobility crutch substitute. Those suffering lower leg, foot and ankle injuries can resume their normal daily routines during rehabilitation. Conventional crutches cause discomfort by putting unnatural pressure on your hands and underarms.  Conventional crutches cause chafing, can rub the skin under your arms raw, cause irrepairable nerve damage, and easily fatigue your hands and arms.  Basically, conventional crutches make the simple act of getting around a strenuous chore. iWALK 2.0 can end all of this unnecessary pain and discomfort.

Instead of bearing the weight in your arms, your weight is transferred to your shin.  Note – while it may appear that the weight is supported by the knee while using the iWALK 2.0, this is not the case.  Your knee doesn’t bear any weight when using iWALK 2.0. The iWALK 2.0 functions under a similar principle as a knee scooter, where you kneel on a platform to support your weight. Unlike other crutch alternatives, the iWALK 2.0 provides this comfort in addition to unsurpassed mobility on many types of terrain, making it the obvious choice in comparison to other crutch alternatives.

Conventional crutches and alternatives such as knee scooters leave your entire injured leg and hip mostly dormant.  The iWALK 2.0 is the only crutch alternative that fully engages the muscles of your upper leg, thigh and hip when walking and standing which improves your motor function throughout and immediately after the rehabilitation period. Moving your leg increases blood circulation, which assists the body in healing. The additional comfort and efficiency of iWALK 2.0 will also induce you to be more mobile than you would be with other mobility assistance devices.

Losing mobility and the ability to function in day to day life can be an unimaginable hardship.  Learning to cope with an injury without being able to get through typical daily activities and work can create  tremendous mental stress. The iWALK 2.0 is the alternative to crutches that can help ease the stress of managing daily activities with an injury. The iWALK 2.0 gives you much more than just the ability to walk. It gives you back your freedom.

The three straps cinch around your leg to stabilize you during standing and walking. Your hands and arms are not involved.

FDA and CE certified, iWALKFREE will give your patient the freedom of movement that can’t be matched by crutches or knee scooters. A good quick test to see if the iWALK 2.0 might be suitable is to place the shin  of the injured leg (with your leg bent 90 degrees) on a padded bench or chair. If you can carry weight in this manner  for a few minutes and the shin and knee remain comfortable, this is a very good indication that iWALK 2.0 will work for you.
