Cautionary Words Before Purchasing a Seated Scooter

Cautionary Words Before Purchasing a Seated Scooter

Seated walkers are not for everyone. Studies show that 40% of seated scooter rentals are returned before the rental period is up. The reason given for early return invariably is related to suitability - not product quality.

Some example reasons for early returns are: “It's too hard to push with my good leg.” “My leg is too short for the walker.” “I can’t get comfortable.” “It's not what I expected. " “A seated scooter just doesn't work for me.”  

When seated walker scooters are returned or returned early, customers end up with costs that could have been avoided. So, prior to purchase or renting, please give extra thought to its suitability for your needs.

Here are some Considerations Regarding Seated Walker Scooters:
  • Moving forward puts a strain on the good leg's heel and ham-string muscles.
  • The required seating posture can strain the lower back and be tiring.  
  • Having the injured leg in one position for a long time may not be comfortable.
  • Seated walker's require balance which some patients find too challenging.  
If you have doubts about suitability of a seated walker for your needs, please clear up those doubts before purchase. You will be better off for it.
