I have a permanently bad foot, and have been very happy with my TLC leg caddy, which is lighter, far easier to maneuver, and has great height adjustability. When my sister broke her foot, I convinced her to use a knee scooter instead of crutches, and talked her into this one because it seems far stabler than the other models, and she's a bit of a klutz. When she healed, she gave her scooter to me as a back-up, and I just used it today for the first time - I feel HORRIBLE for making her use it even once! It's far too heavy to get in and out of car for the person using it, the 'adjustable' height seems like it skips 10 inches - it was either about 5 inches too low or about 4 too high (or so it seemed, I haven't measured), which just destroyed my back (and my good foot, which ended up being on tip-toe for scooting about half the time when I chose to destroy my foot over my back), and it was impossible to maneuver. I used it at the grocery store, and had to go backwards several times for things like produce bags, and ran over my good foot every time. To turn around instead of scoot backwards, I had to have the entire isle clear. It almost doubled my time in the grocery store, which double sucks when you're 'lame' to begin with! When I shop with a knee scooter, I just put reusable bags on the handlebars, and with the weight of the groceries on the handlebars, I could barely use the stupid thing. To top it off, even though I think it's sturdier than the TLC, my sister managed to throw herself over the handlebars while going over a crack (which is just kinda a 'her' thing to do, but still), so it wasn't even worth that. I HATE THIS SCOOTER! If you're looking for one, get the TLC leg caddy instead - it's only slightly more expensive, but after just one trip I'll be selling the stupid thing, so it's not worth a dime!
