Traveler 3 Wheel Nova Rollator
Everyone using a walker needs a this 3-wheel rollator for indoors. The Traveler is perfect for maneuvering on carpet, around furniture and in tight places. It features NOVA’s easy to use locking hand brakes, a tray, basket, pouch and 8” rugged wheels, and is foldable for easy transport and storage. When relying on a cane in the home, falls can easily occur when a foot catches or balance is off. We like how the traveler 3-wheel rollator has a tray for drinks and a basket for other belongings. This frees hands to steady your balance so you can move freely in your home. We also find that larger 4-wheel rollators are cumbersome indoors. Often people will opt not to use them and then a fall occurs. This 3-wheel option is perfect in a tight bathroom and allows you to transfer belongings, drinks, food etc. with the tray and basket.
