Rolling walker rollator with seat

I'm having a temporary physical problem that will require the use of a lightweight rolling walker or rollator that folds easily and ideally has a seat for resting. This will be used solely for travel as I have a full size walker available at home. And because my problem is (hopefully) temporary, cheaper is better (under $100, if possible). Any suggestions?

Do those of you who use walkers pink tag/gate check them like baby strollers? Or do they fit in the overhead bins? Do you place on them on the belt when going through TSA? Any advice would be appreciated!

I bought my mom a rollator (2 actually, one for inside and one for outside) and doubt they can go into overhead - and I would be upset if another passenger tried to stick it up there. Its too bulky/takes up too much space, Im sure it weighs more than what a pax is suppose to put in the overhead and youre suppose to lift/store overhead luggage yourself. I doubt it will fit in an aisle.

What about using airport services to get you around the airport and in/out of the plane?

Good luck on your recovery.

Thanks, Osmo. I'm thinking of gate checking instead of bringing onboard.
