I already have this walker and purchased another. It weighs 11 lbs and the bag is nice because it folds up with the walker. I can conceal my purse in the bag. This walker it is the lightest one I've had. I can put it in and out of my car easily. The wheels and the handles adjust. The hand grips flare out and are made to support your hand and wrist better than others. I am very happy with this product and the price is good..
I have been an RN just over 30 years and also have had Multiple Sclerosis for the same period of time. Sometimes my balance is poor and that is when I use a cane. My health has been "off" for the past few months and it was time to start walking again to build up quad and core strength. I felt too short of breath to continue with a cane so I started looking online initially for a folding walker with wheels and seat. Almost everyone that I found weighed 25lbs and over which is too much weight for me to lift into my Jeep Commander and take to a store or other venue. Found this Meline product which I have always been pleased with while practicing as an RN. The "Red Baron" as I have named him arrived within a few short days. I could normally assemble a walker of this nature and model in 5 minutes or less for my home bound patients. This one with poor dexterity in my own MS hands took me 15 minutes tops. I am short at 5' 2" and I love the feature that allows for a short person up to a person well over 6 feet to use this one rollator walker. The wheels are solid (no air required or flat tires) and roll easily over rough terrain or turf. Perfect for getting some air outside. Extremely safe for those like me that have heart issues and require a place to sit albeit in the middle of a store. The color is fantastic in a deep ruby red making it versatile for male or female genders. The only drawback is that is does not fold up to load into the car..........but it is also only 10lbs and easily fits into the back of my Jeep. I am pleased to make the trade between a folding walker with the extra weight to lift versus this light and sassy one that keeps me INDEPENDENT!!! Highly recommend for children up to senior plus adults. Again, as an RN, the Medline brand was a 'go to' for quality durable medical equipment for in home use.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good impact resistance on sidewalks, parking lots and turf. Solid build. Very very attractive color
This walker is as advertised and arrived in a timely manner. It appears to be excellent quality and mechanically sound. Fabric bag under the seat is an advantage over a basket in that the walker can be folded without removing it.

This petite rollator is perfect for my Aunt who is 4' 10". She can handle it easily and sit with her feet hitting the floor. It folds too ! I searched for a rollator extensively because all the others did not adjust to her height. I am quite pleased with this one. Thank you for offering it !
This was so great when I was recovering from hip replacement surgery. I could put plates and cups on the seat, and take care of myself at mealtime. On long walks, there was the seat to give me a place to rest for a while. This is easy to put together with no tools needed - very cool! I have since passed it on to a friend with a broken knee...
The built in pouch is great when shopping - I never needed to carry a purse, I just put my stuff in the bag.
If there is one drawback - it isn't easy to collapse, and doesn't get too flat, which makes it problematic when people are trying to give you a ride somewhere, and it's the walker that becomes hard to handle and get into the car. But, I still give it a five star rating.
I bought this for my mother who is 5' tall. Many walkers are made for taller people. (This can be adjusted for taller people as well.) It's light, it moves easily, it can be folded easily to be put in a car. At first my mother was not excited to be given a walker, but now she uses it all of the time. The only downside I've seen with it is that it won't stay folded while upright so it can be placed somewhere out of the way. (Though some long velcro straps could probably help with that.)
I am very impressed with The Medline Standard and Junior Rollator / Walker! It looks just like the picture on the site and performs just like it said it would. The only problem I have is, it does not fold up small enough to go in some of my friends cars(When I have Dr. Appointment). Lucky I have a Mini Van and we use it instead. Plenty of room to put it in a Mini Van. Other than the fold up problem, I am very happy with purchase. I even got it on SALE & FREE SHIPPING!!

Do the brakes lock so it can't roll away while you support yourself to stand?quest123 on Feb 10, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The brakes do rock but any rolling walker will not hold your weight if you lean against it. I use mine for shopping and love it. When I need that rest, I lock my brakes and sit down. Very comfortable seat and it flips up for storage of purse and small bags. Please know that this walker does not fold up to put into a trunk. I have an SUV that it goes in easily. This one not folding is almost 10 pounds lighter than those that do fold. Highly recommend for home, taking a walk outside and shopping. I am an RN and was also pleased with the simplicity of adjusting the legsk77ste on Feb 23, 2014
