• Knee Walkers rated one of the best mobility aids for foot problems

  • When you receive a diagnosis related to a foot it often comes as a shock and then you discover that you may require surgery and a non-weight bearing recovery.

    It is at that moment you wonder how you are going to cope and keep your busy life intact over the recovery period. That is when it is really good to discover there is a StrideOn knee walker that you can rent or buy with a next day delivery service that comes with a compassionate professional service.

    Customers have used our knee walkers for a number of foot issues including:


    Having diabetes means you’re at much greater risk of developing foot problems. Raised blood glucose levels, also known as blood sugar, can damage the sensation in your feet.

    This can also affect your circulation, which can lead to you getting less blood supply to your feet. Without a good blood supply, you may have problems with cuts and sores healing. You may also get cramps and pain in your legs or feet.


    A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place. This causes the tip of your big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forces the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out.

    Having an operation to relieve this is an option, if all else fails. If you do opt for surgery, you will usually be non – weight bearing on that foot for some weeks.

    This is where to aid in your recovery a StrideOn Knee Walker would enable you to lead an almost normal daily life without trying to use uncomfortable crutches. Just kneel on the knee pad and scoot around indoors or outside. People who use a StrideOn Knee Walker find it aids their recovery much quicker.

    Hammer Toe

    A hammer toe is a deformity of the second, third or fourth toes. In this condition, the toe is bent at the middle joint, so that it resembles a hammer. Initially, hammer toes are flexible and can be corrected with simple measures but, if left untreated, they can become fixed and require surgery.

    Plantar ftis

    Plantar ftis is pain on the bottom of your foot, around your heel and arch. You can usually ease the pain yourself but see a GP if it does not improve within 2 weeks.

    If Plantar ftis does not get better, a GP might refer you to a physiotherapist or foot specialist (podiatrist).

    A physiotherapist can show you exercises to help ease your symptoms. A podiatrist can recommend things like insoles and the right shoes to wear.

    Physiotherapists recommend our StrideOn and Orthomate regularly to aid the recovery of plantar ftis.
