Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Easy Walking, Incorporated, to offer their Up n’ Go® Toddler Gait Trainer to a more comprehensive consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Maple Glen, Pennsylvania, Easy Walking is the premier provider of the most unique and innovative sit-to-stand, ambulatory, full and partial weight bearing gait training walkers available on the market today. With a product line that includes solutions for children and adults, their Up n’ Go® and Up n’ Free® mobility devices come in a wide assortment of sizes and styles to suit everybody’s special needs.
As the leading standard in true gait development, the Up n’ Go® is a dynamic partial weight-bearing device specifically designed to improve specific problem areas such as balance, range of motion and lower extremity strength. The Toddler version helps young users develop and sustain proper gait, and assists them in safer sit-to-stand actions, while also allowing ambulation from a variety of positions. Assisted and supported transfer supplements the user’s own lower extremity strength, and enhances a sense of independence. Hands-free steering and support allows for better control, and a wide area of motion for the ankles, knees and hips leads to corrected gait. With support delivered above the user’s center of gravity, the Up n’ Go® not only partially lifts the user’s weight, but it also stabilizes the pelvis and trunk positioning, enabling dynamic balance and improved posture all while being comfortably and safely supported.
Compatible with most wheelchairs, chairs, beds and commodes, the Up n’ Go® Toddler Gait Trainer improves rehabilitation for patients with neurological and orthopedic disabilities and disorders. “We are excited to introduce more consumers to the unsurpassed quality and performance of the Up n’ Go® Toddler Gait Trainer from Easy Walking,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Combining the best attributes of traditional gait trainers with partial weight-bearing lifters, this amazing new device offers the best of both worlds. With a plethora of features to further customize and adjust the Up n’ Go® to your toddler’s own specific requirements or to multiple users, this lightweight and easy-to-use equipment is perfect for use both at home and in facilities such as hospitals, rehab and therapy centers. We are proud to offer this and all of the cutting edge mobility products from Easy Walking to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
