When Melinda Siwek came up with her own design of a pediatric arm immobilizer for her son following his first cleft palate surgery in 1984, she had no idea that she'd be starting a very successful company and rewarding career. Yet this is exactly how the Medi-Kid Company was born; necessity is indeed the mother of invention! And now Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has teamed up with the Medi-Kid Company in order to provide these pediatric immobilizers to their customers.

Pedi-Wrap™ Pediatric Arm Immobilizers created by Medi-Kid are delightfully designed and comfortable arm immobilizers that safely and quickly control arm movements to prevent children from pulling out stitches, feeding tubes or tracheostomies, putting objects in their mouths, and from inflicting injuries to themselves. Melinda and many other parents with special needs children have certainly found that these simple Velcro immobilizers offer much more ease of use for both the child and the parent than the old answer of bulky and uncomfortable casts and bandages.

“We love the Medi-Kid Company and their immobilizer products,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. "We are so glad to be able to offer these immobilizers to other parents and their special needs children as well. They really help to make recovery more comfortable and convenient for both the child and their parents.”

Medi-Kid has expanded their product line through the years as doctors, nurses and parents have requested more sizes and different styles, and Rehabmart also offers this full selection on their website. Immobilizers for legs are now included, as are styles for adults. Designs also include immobilizers that fit over IV tubes. All of the immobilizers can additionally be used as very effective bandage covers and are also highly recommended for splinting arms to maintain muscle length and joint range of motion.
