Yes! Both the StrideOn and Orthomate fold up for easy transportation or storage. There are two options for folding, you can either lower down the steering column and then tuck it under the knee pad making it easy to pick up. Additionally, you are able to fold the frame completely for that extra space if required.
Both the StrideOn and Orthomate provides you mobility and independence and is much safer than a normal walker or crutches. It lets you rest one knee on the comfortably cushioned resting pad and keep that leg completely off the ground. You can steer and scoot around with the other foot, without putting any pressure on the upper body.
If the StrideOn or Orthomate is delivered via courier they will come 90% assembled. Items such as the knee pad, basket will need to be secured, the back wheel folded out (StrideOn only) and the steering column adjusted and tightened to suit you. Select the correct position for the knee pad that will suit the injured side and slot into position (check the bottom of the knee pad for the correct side). Adjust the height by positioning the pin through the whole that provides the best support height for you then tighten the thumb screw to secure the knee pad in position. The basket hooks onto the pegs secured to the steering column. Instructions will be included with your hire. Please read all manufacturer directions and instructions before using any of our equipment.
Yes! The central steering design of our Knee Walker/Scooter allow for easy maneuvering. They work similar to a bicycle turning the handles left or right, which then turns the front wheel in the direction you wish to go.
Yes, it will work on most carpets. If you have rugs over carpet, we would advise you to take up the rugs whilst using the Knee Walker/Scooter, to prevent creasing.
Yes, every hire or ex-hire purchase is thoroughly cleaned and serviced to ensure it is in good working condition each and every time it is sent out. Purchases of new products are taken out of the box for a quality check, packed up and couriered or they come assembled if picked up from our Brisbane office.
We understand that through normal use, the product cannot stay in a pristine state. Normal wear and tear is related to tyre, knee pad and handle wear.
