BARIATRIC WALKERS / HEAVY DUTY WALKER

Bariatric walkers meet the mobility needs of larger individuals. These heavy duty walkers are built specifically for heavier people, and can provide these users with the same capabilities and benefits that smaller people gain from smaller walkers. Whether you need a bariatric walker with wheels, or even one without, AvaCare Medical has a fully stocked inventory of select products that can get you back on your feet!

How Bariatric Walkers Differ from Standard Walkers

Some people wonder if there is any difference between standard and bariatric walkers. The truth is, bariatric walkers are still essentially standard walkers – they are simply meant for heavier or wider people. The primary difference is that they have higher weight capacities than those of the average walker. Bariatric walkers for adults may also have a wider frame to accommodate the user. This is very important, as will be explained below.

Are Bariatric Walkers Only for Overweight People?

Some seniors and disabled persons may think that a bariatric walker is only for those who are obese or overweight, but this is simply not so. Because of the wider frames, extra wide walkers for seniors can also benefit users who simply have broader bodies and shoulders. They will still have the additional benefit of having the higher weight capacity, of course, but heavy duty walkers for seniors can be for almost any older individual, as long as the walker suits their posture and body properly.

So what is meant by a higher weight capacity?

Most standard walkers for adults have weight capacities of 175 to 300 pounds, and provide stability for users who fall within those weight ranges. Our extra wide bariatric walker can support 500 lbs. of weight. This means that those who are heavier can greatly benefit by using such a walker, and still be able to support their weight and the weight of their walker accessories. It is, however, important to note that a user needs to consider the additional weight that their attachments add.

Attachments like oxygen tanks or even drinks and other items will all not only add weight to the walker in general, but they also lower the weight capacity that a walker has available. This is because these should be considered as an addition to the user’s overall weight. For example, if a 290 pound person has a large oxygen tank attached to their heavy duty walker with wheels that weighs approximately 30 pounds, then the total user weight is 320 pounds.

If the capacity of this user’s walker is only 300 pounds, then they are operating unsafely in excess of their device’s rating. Things like this also need to be considered when a patient has a bariatric walker with a basket that they carry personal belongings (or even purchased items) in. Also, be aware that bariatric walker weights have weight limits, too, although these weight limits are significantly higher than those of regular walkers.
