Bariatric rollators are similar in design to standard rollators but have larger and stronger frames to support higher weight capacities. Also known as “heavy duty rollators,” these walking aids are often constructed from reinforced steel and perform well both indoors and outdoors.
Like all rollators, bariatric models have four wheels, with the front two being swivel casters to provide better maneuverability. This differs from traditional walkers, which have either two static front wheels or no wheels at all. Almost all bariatric rollators come standard with a large, padded seat, allowing the user to rest their legs when walking longer distances.

A bariatric rollator is a four-wheeled walking aid that provides additional support and mobility for users who can still walk. Heavy-duty rollators feature robust designs that enable them to support higher weight capacities than traditional models.
Bariatric rolling walkers are almost always wider than standard models, with widths ranging anywhere from 25” to 31” depending on the design.
As their name implies, heavy-duty rollators will usually weigh more than standard rollators. Most models weigh around 22 pounds, but larger units can weigh up to 26 lbs or more.
