“This crawler can be used anywhere and everywhere, as it is so lightweight, it can travel with you wherever you go. Yet, it is so durable, it will stand up to years of hard, continuous use in a therapy or clinical setting as well."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Maddak, Incorporated, to offer their Sit and Ride Ambulatory Aid to a larger consumer market. As one of the leading manufacturers of home healthcare products for seniors, children and adults with disabilities and people recovering from illness and injuries, Maddak creates products that make daily living easier for all people, enhancing mobility and independence. As a subsidiary of Bel-Art Products, Maddak is family-owned and operated since 1971, and is recognized as the largest U.S. manufacturer of Aids for Daily Living (ADL), specializing in home healthcare and rehabilitation products for the senior, disability and rehab markets, while also producing therapeutic games and assessment kits for occupational, physical, speech and recreational therapists.
Maddak's Sit and Ride Ambulatory Aid is a useful stepping stone in therapy. Especially designed for developmentally delayed children and adults with ambulatory difficulties, this lightweight crawler assists with coordinated knee flexion and extension, heel strikes and reciprocal leg movements. Children and adults up to 175 pounds can practice certain ambulatory patterns and propel with feet to prepare for using these actual movements in a standing position. The sling height is adjustable to allow for a wide variety of body sizes, and the casters are suitable for use on all hard floors and most carpeting.
Children and adults can use the Sit and Ride alone, or in therapy sessions as a comfortable support while learning walking exercises. “We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the advantages of the Sit and Ride Ambulatory Aid from Maddak,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This crawler can be used anywhere and everywhere, as it is so lightweight, it can travel with you wherever you go.
