Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Mobility Research, Incorporated, to offer assistive mobility devices to a larger consumer market. Headquartered in Tempe, Arizona, Mobility Research is a company comprised of rehabilitation professionals dedicated to the transfer of the latest research and technology knowledge to the rehabilitation arena. This experienced team of educators, clinicians, researchers and engineers work to provide education, products and rehabilitation solutions for adult and pediatric populations with motor control-related disabilities. They design and manufacture the LiteGait® collection of products, used in treating stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, head injury, amputation, orthopedic problems, arthritis, balance issues and chronic pain.
The LiteGait® mobility frames are mutually beneficial for rehabilitation facilities, therapists and patients. Facilities can increase efficiency and revenue by growing the number of patients receiving gait therapy, by reducing the risk of back injuries to staff and the risk of falls to patients, and by offering therapy to patients not previously eligible for gait therapy due to the complexity or severity of their conditions or cognitive levels. Therapists can provide more efficient treatment, without the risk of injury to themselves or their patients, and more properly and effectively facilitate a wide variety of gait, balance and alignment therapies. And patients can experience a sense of accomplishment with this supported suspension, learning to walk in an environment free from falls. The LiteGait® allows the patient to begin training earlier in the rehabilitation process, and at a lower level, while offering improved interaction with the therapist.
Available in a multitude of sizes, styles and specifications, the LiteGait® also offers a pediatric version for children in supported gait training and pre-gait developmental postures and movements. When employed as a dynamic stander, the LiteGait Walkable® 100MX mobility frame enables children who cannot stand without assistance to interact more easily with others and their environment. “We are proud to offer these amazing assistive mobility devices to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “The LiteGait® products from Mobility Research are used in hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, physical therapy centers, resident care homes and private homes and are extremely useful for any patient challenged with mobility issues.”
