General Care

To ensure that your steerable knee walker will have a long service life, inspect it regularly and follow these general maintenance tips:

 

Wipe the frame with a soft, damp cloth at least once a week to remove any dust and dirt. If exposed to moisture, dry immediately. Do not use an abrasive cleaner that will scratch the finish.

 

Use only a clean towel dampened with cool water when cleaning hand grips and padded cushion. Confirm that the grips are dry before using. NEVER use ammonia-based cleaning solutions or soap on hand grips or cushion, which may cause them to loosen or crack.

 

Clean wheels with warm water and a mild cleanser. Dry with a clean rag.

 

Periodically inspect that the brakes, seat lever, steering column, and wheels are functioning properly and that all parts are secure. If any issues develop, discontinue use until they have been addressed.

Assembly

Assembling Your Steerable Knee Walker

  4. Rotate the lever clockwise to tighten the quick release clamp, pushing the locking handle against the side of the steering column to securely lock into place.

  6. Align the holes in steering column and re-insert the star screw, tightening knob securely.
  7. Remove the star screw located on the knee bench supporting column. Insert the knee bench post, positioning the knee bench to the appropriate height.
  8. Align the holes and re-insert the star screw through the knee bench column, tightening knob securely.

Usage

Folding/Unfolding

  1. To fold the steering column down, pull the lock lever away from the steerable knee walker until the lock is disengaged. While holding the lock lever in the down position, fold the steering column down until it rests on the knee pad.
  2. To fold the frame, pull the frame lock lever away from the steerable knee walker until the lock is disengaged. While holding the lever in place, pull up on the frame until wheels come together.

 

Before Each Use

  1. Ensure that the brakes are working correctly. Over time the brake cables may stretch with use and should be adjusted to ensure continued proper operation. Failure to do this may result in injury to the user.
  2. Ensure all parts are secure and moving parts are in good working order.
  3. Ensure the seat lock lever and steering column lever are securely locked into place.
  4. All four wheels MUST be in contact with the floor at all times during use to ensure the steerable knee walker is properly balanced.
  5. Be aware of your surroundings when operating the steerable knee walker. Watch for safety hazards, such as cords, floor rugs, and other obstacles.

 

Using Your Steerable Knee Walker

  1. Place injured leg on bench, centered side-to-side and positioned forward to cover the full length of bench.
  2. With injured leg on bench, stand as straight as possible (adjust the height as necessary).
  3. With injured foot pointing down, the propulsion leg should be kept as close as possible to the bench.
  4. While on your toes, start out with small steps with propulsion leg. Concentrate on keeping that leg next to the bench. With practice, you should be able to move forward without deviating to the opposite side. 

Using the Hand Brake

  1. The steerable knee walker's brake is similar to a bicycle and also has a locking feature. To use the brake, simply pull the lever with your fingertips toward the handlebar.
  2. To lock the brake, pull the brake lever towards the handlebar and push down on the spring-loaded push button (located on top of brake). When correctly engaged, push button will remain down and brake lever will be locked in place.
  3. To release brake, simply pull lever towards the handlebar. Push pin will pop up automatically.
