A Bariatric Walker is used when a regular Walker just can't hack it. It has a wider frame and increased durability while maintaining manueverability and folding capabilities. Though slightly heavier than Standard & Hemi Walkers, it is still reasonably lightweight (most models way between 5-10 lbs). Models typically support up to 500 or 650 lbs.
