If you’re reading this, then you’re probably looking for a good quality and affordable knee scooter. Well, if your answer was a “yes”, then you’re in the right place. I figured I should write a review because I couldn’t really find a good review on knee scooter products, so I thought this review would be helpful to others who wants to buy a knee scooter. Well, this review is about the Karman Luxury Lightweight 4-Wheeled Knee Walker with Basket, which is the knee scooter I’ve been using for four months.
This knee scooter belongs to the Karman Healthcare’s KW-100 series which comes with an S-Shaped frame, which supposedly enhances stability and style. You can feel really safe with their proprietary axle breaking design which is one of the most effective braking systems available, and this product is obviously better than any other competitor when it comes to braking systems.
You get a knee pad, a basket and adjustable height handles, which means that any person of any height can comfortably use it. The product weighed about 28 pounds after I’ve assembled it, it was really easy to assemble, and it only took me an hour to install it. The handle can be folded down, so that you can place it in your trunk or your backseat, it only occupies as much space as a couple suitcases. The knee pad is quite comfortable, although I believe that this knee scooter is best for indoor purposes, but it can still be used outdoors as well.
The product description says that the maximum weight limit is 350 lbs., but I’m quite sure that it can easily withstand heavier persons. This knee scooter is really easy to roll, even a slightest push is enough for you to go to the other room. Although the ride can be a bit *bumpy* on rough or uneven surfaces, it can still roll without much effort. The basket is a lifesaver, although it doesn’t seem to be that important, it really helped me focus on handling the scooter by placing the things I wanted to carry around, in my basket.
The only downside of this product was that I never received an assembly instruction manual, I’m not sure if they don’t even include it. But, the YouTube videos helped me out. It was quite easy to install it, I’m sure you wouldn’t even need a video tutorials if you are familiar with assembling things. This product really helped me to stay independent, I could get my own lunch and drinks after I started using this product. This is definitely a lifesaver!
The parking break can be easily activated by pushing the break handle towards you. It gives a click if the rear wheels are properly locked. You can unlock the parking break by pulling the break handle away. My experience with this product was quite satisfactory and I’d totally recommend anybody to get this product if you want to get rid of crutches.

“I’ve bought the Karman Luxury Lightweight 4-Wheeled Knee Walker with Basket on Amazon.com after reading the product’s review on this website. I’m 6 feet 10 inches tall and weigh about 320 pounds, so I’m a really huge person. So, I wanted a knee scooter that’s sturdy enough to help me get around my house or get the groceries. I had used crutches before getting this product, but it was very tiresome to use it and reduced my mobility significantly. I had to look up a video tutorial to assemble this product, I wonder why they didn’t send an instruction manual with the product, but it wasn’t really a big deal for me anyway. I bought a padded cover for the knee pad, which made the product even more comfortable. My bottom line is that this product is really good for its price, and my overall experience was quite satisfactory. The color was attractive and I had used this product on almost all kinds of surfaces, and never had an issue. The wheels are large enough to roll on almost any kind of surfaces. This knee scooter also rolls really well, I actually go quite faster than my friends while I’m walking with them without much effort. If you want to use something more comfortable, safer and get rid of your crutches, I’d say this is the best product for you”

“I’m Veronica and I’ve been using this knee scooter for a while now. My experience was quite positive, I never had a trouble getting my groceries or getting things around at my home. It’s really incredible to regain your mobility after you end up in a situation where you can’t put weight on one of your legs. This product is quite sturdy and made me feel secure and the color was great. This product is foldable, so I often take it with me in my car, it doesn’t really occupy much space, and it even fits into a small trunk. Amazon’s delivery was quite satisfactory, the product didn’t need any adjustments or anything, it was just fine right out of the box. The turning radius is usually good enough, but you do have to reposition the front end of the scooter in small areas. My experience with this knee scooter was quite satisfactory, the build quality is so good that it can be used for at least 1 to 2 years. The S-Shaped frame improved the stability of the knee scooter. The instructions were really easy, it only took me 20 minutes to install the product, may be because I’m good at installing things, but I don’t think it’ll take anyone more than 45 minutes to install it. It can be used straight out of the box, you just have to adjust the knee pad and the height, of course, I’d recommend you to get a cover for the knee pad, because it just makes it so much more comfortable!”
