A few years ago Malcolm Brogdon, then a basketball player for University of Virginia team Cavaliers , had a foot and ankle injury and was in cast. The team’s athletic trainer decided to get Malcolm a RollerFoot. We were glad to be able to provide an extra high RollerFoot for Malcolm – a promising college basketball player. During his recovery and the no-weight-on-the-foot period Malcolm was on the RollerFoot and had been able to attend team practices. Thanks to the RollerFoot Malcolm continuously exercised his upper leg muscles and had both hands free to shoot the hoop.
Malcolm had completely recovered and continued his college study and playing basketball at the University.
Recently we found out that Malcom Brogdon had joined the Milwaukee Bucks – an NBA franchise! What added to our excitement is that Malcolm is now in Milwaukee where Step Dynamics, the RollerFoot company is located. What an interesting coincidence – out of dozens of NBA teams Brogdon comes to Milwaukee, the home of that unique device that helped him during the recovery from the injury. We are so glad to have him here. We can now go to the game and see Malcolm play at the Bucks Arena! And maybe one day we could meet him in person and talk about his experience on the RollerFoot years ago.
Recently we collaborated with a Milwaukee-based ad agency adBidtise who gave us a lot of good ideas and created new exposure for RollerFoot in media and TV. Here is an interview we gave to adBidtise talking about how the ad agency helped us in marketing. The interview is accompanied by a nice video footage of using RollerFoot in the street.
In this video one can see how the RollerFoot is not only useful at home and office but also in the streets of today’s urban living. The user in the video is rolling on the sidewalks while his hands are occupied with a bag and a water bottle. He is easily crossing the street, steering with his knee and going around corners , resting the injured foot on the RollerFoot while sitting on a bench.
You can also see a demonstration of how simple it is getting the RollerFoot in and out of the car.
In one episode the user shows how he can take a step up with the RollerFoot from the pavement level and onto the sidewalk. That is a height of one foot! Among all the knee scooters, only the RollerFoot is capable of such maneuver (stepping up or down) because of it’s unique design and function.
RollerFoot was featured on NBC’s WTMJ4 in Milwaukee on the Morning Blend show.
Anyone who’s had foot surgery for trauma or bunions knows what a pain it can be to get around without putting weight on your foot. In addition, most methods tie up your hands and make accomplishing daily activities difficult. That’s why we’re really excited to introduce you to RollerFoot! It provides smooth mobility with no weight on your foot, all while keeping your hands free following foot surgery!
Most people are not even aware of the many options that exist for them. This includes not only those who work at home but many in standing professions using both hands, such as surgeons, hair stylists, machinists, bar tenders, store clerks
This picture “Mom on RollerFoot” is a great testimony that our clients are very busy people and just can’t simply stop doing what they have to do. Many of them are mothers with families and children.
This one was sent to us by our client Heather L. She too continues to take care of her children and the household while non-weight bearing and recovering from a foot injury.
Her son drew Mom on the RollerFoot because he sees her all day long on the RollerFoot rolling around the house, taking care of things. Most noticeable on that drawing is that he shows himself and Mom close together. This means that Heather is doing an excellent job despite her predicament, and we are proud that RollerFoot is helping her to achieve that. What is also good to see is that both of them are smiling on the drawing. This means that the son feels that things are going great! What a blessing!
Our customer Heather is wearing an orthopedic boot and actively uses RollerFoot to walk after foot surgery. RollerFoot allows her to stay productive not only at home but outside and everywhere she goes. Watch how Heather is using her RollerFoot confidently, walking from the parking lot, onto the sidewalk and to the store. You can see that she is handling the rough spot on the pavement with ease. Her hands are free and she is walking almost naturally.
Notice, Heather also uses a special clip-on platform on her good foot to add a few inches of height to be more even on her legs with an orthopedic boot. The additional platform is called EvenUp. It also helps Heather to increase her height (5′) to better fit onto the RollerFoot. Our low limit on height is around 5’2″. But in the end Heather can easily walk after foot surgery with the aid of the RollerFoot!
Once she is inside the store and gets hold of the shopping cart, she would be flying through the store fast and comfortable to the amazement and amusement of others.
Watch a video of using RollerFoot with a shopping cart on our Video page.
If Heather were on one of those steerable knee walkers (knee scooters) with handle bars, she wouldn’t be able to use the shopping cart at all!!! You can now see that RollerFoot is really freeing up your hands and provides additional benefits compared to the regular steerable knee scooters.
RollerFoot continues to be the knee walker of choice
Here is our happy customer Holly of Chicago on the RollerFoot knee walker after restorative foot surgery. She is cruising along the streets, doing her own thing while keeping that foot elevated and her hands free.
She had just had her second restorative foot surgery and was non-weight bearing for over six weeks after that. All this time she was using the RollerFoot hands free knee scooter she rented from us. Holly used the RollerFoot first time a couple of years ago after her first surgery. This time she decided that the RollerFoot was still the best option compared to other steerable knee scooters and iWalkFree. As you can see Holly is completely comfortable to roll on the RollerFoot in the street, going in and out of stores, shops and cafes.
You can watch short videos – Holly on the RollerFoot in the streets of Chicago that she shot and allowed us to put up on our site for future customers of the RollerFoot. You can clearly see that Holly is completely confident in her use of the RollerFoot outside on the city sidewalks, and she had her hands free for additional convenience.
That is what you call a true independence from not only crutches, but also from the steering handle bars of other knee scooters or knee walkers! That is the best quality of life after a foot surgery that is only possible with the RollerFoot hands free knee walker!
Customers can rent or purchase brand new units on our site. We offer a variety of colors to fit all tastes of men and women. You can also ask us a question about the RollerFoot hands free knee scooter by sending us an email at email@example.com or call us at 414 704 7810.
RollerFoot, a state-of-the-art knee walker, has become popular among people with foot or ankle injuries. Patients after reconstructive foot surgery will also find it extremely useful. Wide range of patients from home makers to doctors, to tradesmen and office workers, men and women alike use the RollerFoot knee scooter.
The idea for the RollerFoot appeared as a solution for a need to stay active and mobile while healing a foot injury. First, by using a chair for standing up to free up one’s hands. Later the concept advanced into adding wheels and better fitted leg support.
Available in different colors and manufactured using high-grade plastic and wheels. RollerFoot is light and offers a good grip on the leg with its two Velcro straps. The patient can steer the RollerFoot with his knee because the front wheels are able to freely pivot. The rear wheels on the other hands are fixed parallel to the unit’s center line. This helps in the straight line movement.
Since the injured leg is strapped into the device, one can lift and maneuver the RollerFoot easily. You can lift it up from the ground with your leg to get over an obstacle or even take a step up.
Furthermore, the RollerFoot also provides beneficial exercise for the leg muscles. Due to its hands-free design it helps your upper leg muscles to function all the time. This improves the blood circulation through the muscles in the injured leg, helps with the healing process and minimizes atrophy.
You can rent the RollerFoot for temporary use or purchase it to own. Just login at www.rollerfoot.com and order one for yourself or someone else through a simple online process.
We had a nice booth at the largest medical home care and medical durable equipment show MEDTRADE in Atlanta, GA, October 27 – 29, 2015.
Here is the RollerFoot booth at the MedTrade inside the HIRA pavilion. We had 6 units of all colors and sizes on display, five of them were on the table and one on the floor for demonstration of how to use for the visitors. RollerFoot units presented were of all three size groups from smallest to the tallest patients.
We also had a poster on the wall to show side by side the hands free knee scooter RollerFoot and regular streerable knee scooters/walkers. The idea was to show the difference between the hands free RollerFoot and regular knee walkers with handle bars, and promote Combination rentals. Combination Rentals is the idea of offering the best features of both knee scooters: RollerFoot for inside use, such as home, work, office, and the traditional knee scooters for outside use.
Here is a picture of the RollerFoot booth at the MedTrade.
We had a steady flow of visitors, mostly owners of DME stores looking to add new items to their existing fleet of knee scooters. We explained the difference between the traditional knee scooters and the RollerFoot and demonstrated how easy it is to roll around on RollerFoot hands free, and explained the advantages of RollerFoot for small areas at home such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, hallways, etc.
Many visitors tried the RollerFoot themselves to see that it is easy to use for physically able people with foot or ankle trauma, and that it takes a few minutes to become comfortable on the unit for anyone.
We also had a visit by a beautiful model walking the floor of the show who also wanted to try the RollerFoot. All ladies look really good on that pink RollerFoot!
Watch these videos to learn how our patients are Using RollerFoot outside. In this case – on the streets of Chicago by our second-time customer Holly Y.
Holly is non-weight bearing and is walking around on RollerFoot knee scooter with her hands free. You can see her rolling out of a cafe. Notice how confidently, with gusto she is handling the knee walker.
This is a good illustration that RollerFoot is easily used outside, on the street and public places in addition to its superior performance indoors. As you can see a physically able patient does not need a handle bar to support herself (himself) on the RollerFoot knee walker. Average muscle strength, coordination and balance are all that is needed for successful use of the HANDS FREE knee scooter RollerFoot.
Here is one creative way to do RollerFoot rental business. Our New Zealand dealer Physio Health Ltd offers RollerFoot together with the regular steerable knee scooters. They call it a “combination hire” which offers the best of both devices: RollerFoot for home use and steerable scooter for outside use. The charge is a little more for combination, but they say it really works for heir customers.
