Yes you will be able to gate check the rollator, I'm assuming it can fold up in some way for handling. 

 

You could also get wheelchair assitance, you can make a note of it when you book, or after you have your reservation you can call, Tweet, or perhaps Facebook to request one. You may be able to request same day as well but I'd allow extra time in that case if it were to be a busy day for the assistance staff.

 

If you use twitter, don't send any personally identiyfing infomration until they ask for a direct message.
