“This is a wonderful daily living assistance tool to encourage independence through the act of feeding one’s self, and could dramatically improve daily life for individuals experiencing disabilities that have prevented them from eating independently."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with North Coast Medical, Incorporated, to offer their Winsford Self-Feeder® with Case to a larger consumer marketplace. Located between Silicon Valley and the Monterey Peninsula, North Coast manufactures and distributes a wide range of industry-leading product lines across a continuum of rehabilitation medical care. For nearly four decades, North Coast’s premium quality rehabilitation products, equipment and supplies have serviced physical, occupational and hand therapy markets, and they continue to fulfill the needs of skilled nursing facilities, in-patient/out-patient hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, private practices and individual users all over the world.
Sustaining their development and testing of new products that help with various issues including pain management, post-surgery recovery, sports medicine, and evaluation and daily living assistance, North Coast’s in-house team of occupational and physical therapists have created or acquired dynamic and innovative medical devices with trademarks and brand names such as Norco™, Comfort-Cool®, Achieva™, Solaris™, Physioview™, Exacta™, Spectrum™, Touch-Test®, and Winsford®. Their Winsford Self-Feeder® with Case encourages independence by empowering users to feed themselves at their own pace.
Controlled by either a chin switch or the plug-in rocker switch, this feeder operates free-standing when using the battery, or plugged into a standard wall outlet when using the included charger unit. Completely height-adjustable, this feeder simply requires a slight move of the head, chin, face, hip, knee or foot to work with ease. The rotating and easily accessible food containers have the ability to hold any type of food, including soups, and the automated pusher puts food into the automated lifting spoon.
This self-feeder comes complete with a battery, battery charger, a Corelle® dinner plate and bowl, a spoon, a pusher, a stationary glass holder, a chin switch rod, a drip pan, a turntable and a convenient carrying case for easy transport. “We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the helpful Winsford Self-Feeder® with Case from North Coast Medical,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This is a wonderful daily living assistance tool to encourage independence through the act of feeding one’s self, and could dramatically improve daily life for individuals experiencing disabilities that have prevented them from eating independently.
