Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Enabling Devices to offer their assistive technology products to a wider consumer market. Headquartered in Hawthorne, New York, and founded by Steven E. Kanor, Ph.D., Enabling Devices was originally known as Toys for Special Children. As a creative innovator of communicators, toys and switches for the physically challenged, this company has been providing affordable learning and assistive devices for disabled people of all ages for more than 35 years. They consult with special education teachers, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists and parents of special needs children to determine how to best fulfill the needs of the disabled community with their products. Their Rehabilitation Engineers have worked hands-on in classrooms with special needs children for more than 30 years, and their continued focus on supporting 'real needs' is well evident in their uniquely designed products.
Enabling Devices works tirelessly to provide high quality products to people with physical challenges that help them to more effectively learn, communicate, work and play, and to function more easily and enjoyably in the world. Through their expertise in designing electro-mechanical adaptive and assistive devices, they help to improve the quality of life for disabled people of all ages. Because they do not 'over-design', nor add any unnecessary frills, the products from Enabling Devices are affordable and the most cost-effective adaptive products on the market today. They offer a wide variety of adaptive and assistive products to suit every need, including communicators, capability switches, sensory products, autism products, mobility devices, products for the visually impaired and mounting devices.
In addition, they offer a vast assortment of Classroom Ready Kits that help special needs teachers and therapists to better serve their students' or patients' needs. Just a few impressive examples include the Sensory Stimulation Kit that helps promote self-calming, balance and proprioception, the Classroom Switch Kit that provides a wide array of various adaptive switches for different physical abilities, the Classroom Assistive Technology Communication Kit that helps enhance social interactions and independence, and the Autism Spectrum Disorder Visual Stimulation Kit, a multisensory kit specifically designed for students on the autism spectrum. “We are absolutely delighted to introduce more consumers to these incredible assistive technology products from Enabling Devices,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Featuring over 600 learning and adaptive devices, everyone will certainly be able to find that perfect product for their own needs, or the needs of their loved ones.
