Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with TherAdapt® Products, Incorporated, to offer their Exer-Rider® mobility device for special needs children to a wider consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Ludington, Michigan, TherAdapt designs and crafts innovative pediatric rehabilitation products for children with special needs. As a therapist-owned company, TherAdapt also seeks input from the pediatric therapy community to formulate their product designs, offering unsurpassed quality, performance, safety and function. Their wide array of adaptive equipment has been used and enjoyed by countless children, parents, therapists, caregivers and teachers for over twenty years.
Designed by a pediatric physical therapist with decades of experience, the Exer-Rider® is a unique and fun mobility device created specifically for children with special needs. This innovative and therapeutic ride-on requires absolutely no pedaling, no batteries and no motors. Because of its patented power drive system, the Exer-Rider® moves by simply swinging the handlebars from side to side. Physically-challenged riders will love the fun, while it offers clinically proven therapeutic benefits as well. Accommodating a variety of diagnoses, this safe and low-riding mobility device is very well suited for children with moderate cerebral palsy (especially diplegia), spina bifida, and muscular dystrophy. It helps to promote visual perception skills, motor planning and independent play activity while providing vestibular stimulation, upper extremity strengthening and trunk rotation.
Quality constructed and built to last, even with multiple children using it every day, the Exer-Rider® utilizes heavy tubular steel, an injection-molded polyethylene body, indoor-outdoor skate wheels with sealed bearings and a chrome-colored powder-coated finish. Recommended for children from ages three to 12, this durable ride-on supports weight up to 150 pounds. “We are delighted to introduce more consumers to the fun and therapeutic Exer-Rider® from TherAdapt Products,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Kids won’t even know they’re having a therapy session with this exercise mobility device! Promoting shoulder stability and upper extremity reciprocal movement, while also encouraging trunk extension and rotation, the Exer-Rider® additionally features a foam padded seat, a vinyl padded back and an adjustable belt to provide pelvic and trunk stability. We are proud to offer this exciting ride-on equipment, and all of the wonderful adaptive pediatric equipment from TherAdapt to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
