“This equipment is specifically created to reduce injuries to both patients and caregivers, and helps people to live more independent and comfortable lives."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Oak Pointe Medical Enterprises, Incorporated, to offer their Mangar brand patient lifting systems to a larger consumer market. Headquartered in Troy, Michigan, Oak Pointe Medical has been providing the highest quality durable medical products and educational services to enhance the safety and well-being of healthcare providers, caregivers and private individuals since 2003. Founded by an occupational therapist, Kathleen Dunning spent the last fifteen years identifying and solving the problems associated with the transfer and handling of patients in all kinds of life situations. Along with her team of dedicated therapists, Dunning spent countless hours in the homes of people affected by various conditions and disabilities to better determine which adaptive devices may work more efficiently to help these people lead lives of greater independence.
She soon discovered the Mangar International company, located in Wales, UK. Founded in 1981 by inventor David Garman, Mangar started as a labor of love for an elderly relative. Garman invented the world's first structured bath lift to help this relative to get in and out of the tub more safely and efficiently. In the years since, Mangar has quickly grown into an international leader in adaptive devices and transfer/mobility equipment. And after visiting Mangar's production facility in 2003, Kathleen Dunning and her Oak Pointe Medical Enterprises was proud to be the first American company to begin a relationship with Mangar and introduce their product line to the USA. Both Oak Pointe Medical and Mangar International represent the highest standards of quality in manufacturing, and their products are put through the most rigorous levels of testing and certification. They have been awarded the highest level of certification with both Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and its European equivalent, CE.
The products from Mangar and Oak Pointe Medical offer a wide range of patient lift solutions for various life situations. They offer bariatric lifts, patient lifts, bath lifts, transfer belts, transfer slings, transfer gurneys and transfer sheets and these products can be used in assisted living facilities, long-term care, hospitals, and in private homes, as well as by Fire and EMS personnel. One of their most popular products, the Camel Inflatable Patient Lift, is specially designed to sit up and lift a fallen person from the floor either independently or with assistance from a caregiver and helps to minimize danger and risk associated with manual lifting. “We are thrilled to introduce these helpful Mangar patient lifts from Oak Pointe Medical to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “This equipment is specifically created to reduce injuries to both patients and caregivers, and helps people to live more independent and comfortable lives. Unsurpassed in quality, functionality and design, the lift products from Oak Pointe Medical and Mangar offer great peace of mind for the caregiver and patient alike.”
