Designed specifically for bariatric use, the Bariatric Aluminum Folding Walker from BEK Medical features steel legs, side braces and a wider, deeper frame design than other walkers, which makes it capable of supporting weights up to 500 pounds. The design is also meant to add strength to the frame of the walker without adding any additional weight to its construction. The easy push-button mechanisms on it make it simple to operate the walker with your fingers, palms or even just the side of your hand. Each side of the walker operates independently, as well, making it more navigable in tight spaces. Additionally, it has a vinyl-contoured hand grip for increased comfort and maneuverability.
