Jeannie Jones, 97, tested and approved the Nova Traveler 3-wheel walker. Although it doesn't have a seat, she feels it is more all-terrain, allowing her access to more locations. Jeannie recently installed a Duro-Med Wheelchair & Walker Cup Holder to make it easier for her to get her cup of coffee every morning in the Eskaton Village Carmichael cafe.
