Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with the Spry company to offer innovative walker equipment to a larger consumer market. Headquartered in Mount Vernon, Washington, Spry is a cutting edge designer of durable medical equipment (DME). They continuously focus on usability and creative design to make the best possible equipment for the end user. They constantly strive to create the smartest, coolest designs on the market as they realize that this kind of equipment becomes an extension of a patient's life and should always be designed with the care it deserves. Because they listen to their customers and the end users of their products, this input has helped them create some of the highest quality and most efficiently functioning medical equipment available anywhere in the world today. Their state-of-the-art and patented 'Knee Cruzers' are the direct result of combining their design and manufacturing expertise with the experienced input from their customers.
Since one of the most negative consequences of using standard walkers, crutches and wheelchairs is muscle atrophy, Spry has invented a knee walker called the Knee Cruzer. This special equipment actually helps the user to exercise most or all of the muscles around the knee, hip and trunk, and with regular use, the Knee Cruzer may benefit users by strengthening muscle and improving circulation in both healthy and injured legs. Anyone who can bear weight on one knee should be able to use the Knee Cruzer. Engineered to be the most stable, smooth and comfortable knee walkers on the market, the Knee Cruzer has a plethora of features including a sturdy and steerable frame; non-marking tires; a fixed rear wheel design with swiveling front wheels which allows for 360 degree turns; an easy-to-use one click single brake; and a relaxed ergonomic handle bar grip. It also has an optional quick-release handlebar mount basket for carrying extra necessities.
The Knee Cruzers from Spry are fully adjustable and self-propelled. While they weigh only 21 pounds, they will support weight of up to 350 pounds. The soft, molded foam knee rest provides maximum comfort for either the right or left knee. These Knee Cruzers provide much more stability than crutches and because of their ease of use, won't leave the user feeling exhausted like crutches often do. “We are proud to introduce these revolutionary knee walkers from Spry to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Besides being a much more stable, comfortable and smooth transport system compared to crutches and standard walkers, these Knee Cruzers can actually aid in strengthening muscles, while also ensuring that blood is pumped to the injured leg, improving circulation and reducing swelling.”
