It may weight more than 13 pounds. Amazon lists it at 19 lbs. My Grandma has the R728BL with 7.5" casters vs the 6" on this model. The rollator is VERY heavy. My Grandma had trouble lifting it to load in her trunk. After searching for the lightest rollator (Gma likes the stability vs a walker) I bought her the Medline Freedom Lightweight Folding Aluminum Mobility Rollator Walker with 6-inch Wheels MDS86825SLBLK. It weights 11 pounds and is much easier to push and load. Might be something to think about!
The Medline's only cons would be the bag under the seat isn't as "nice" but can still hold my Grandma's oversized and overstuffed purse and other random goodies and the seat is not as wide. Grandma still fits! I nervously purchased the Medline from Amazon warehouse in "used - acceptable" condition for $43 and change. The only thing wrong was the edge of the top of the box was torn but still protected by the inner flap. Amazon warehouse has two in "very good" condition for $41 right now.

Also, find out about returns bc a lot of people complained about having to pay an outrageous return shipping fee.

For anyone who's looking for a walker, be sure to check Amazon Warehouse. They have never used, just repackaged ones with a good discount all the time. For example, the $43 one at Walmart is available for $30 on Amazon Warehouse. The quantities will be small, but there are many other walkers to choose from and stock changes all the time.

you can check out Facebook marketplace for something like this. They're usually cheaper and in good shape.

That would be nice but so far my experience is if you have Medicare, Medicare doesn't pay. Perhaps things have changed.

Does a lighter weight one make it less stable?

The rules:
https://www.medicare.gov/coverage/walkers
https://www.medicare.gov/coverage...e-coverage

So yes, if your doctor prescribes it, and it is considered durable medical equipment you pay 20%. If you have part B, you're all set and no cost.

Of course with the on going "tear it our root and branch" case currently before the Supreme Court the whole thing may disappear at any moment so plan ahead.

Manufacturer specs: https://www.drivemedical.com/us/e...ers/p/53-1
13lbs weight with 300lbs capacity.

My mom has this and likes it a lot. She has a large selection of large/small/indoor/outdoor ones. Older houses often have narrower bathroom doors and this fits through unlike some larger ones. It is light weight, easy to fold and she likes the seat. She also has the 3 wheel version, another a favorite. The 3 wheel is a little easier in crowds or narrow spaces but neither of these is unwieldy.

Not really, it's the size of the wheel footprint (how far apart the wheels are) that really matters for stability but then bigger very quickly gets awkward for indoors so you have to compromise. If you or your elder has issues with personal stability (myasthenia gravis or something else) be cautious with any kind of walker. If you have tiled or other seamed floors consider something with the bigger wheels to more easily roll over the bumps.

Falling can be bad.
