Knee Walkers: Record Speed vs. Doctor Recommended Safety

Posted by Tom Schwab

After an injury or surgery many people are slowed down as they recover on one foot.  Most people think of old fashioned crutches when told by their doctor about the importance of staying non weight bearing.  Others refuse to be condemned to crutches and look for more modern options.  Others still use their ingenuity to event something even better. 


Colin Furze of England was one such person who didn't like any of the options he saw, so he converted a standard mobility scooter into the fastest mobility scooter in the world according to the Guinness Book of Worlds records.  While Colin clocked in at over 70 miles per hour (115 kilometers per hour) we wanted to compare the Goodbye Crutches Knee Scooter to Colin's Scooter for those recovering on one foot after injury or surgery.
