“Parallel bars are a great tool for helping patients learn to walk, or re-learn to walk, and are often used for other kinds of physical, occupational and rehabilitative therapies to address a wide range of issues."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with the Armedica Manufacturing Corporation to offer their Electric Platform Mount Parallel Bars to a wider consumer marketplace. As an American manufacturer of high quality treatment tables, physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment, Armedica provides durable and dependable medical equipment for the professional healthcare industry. They are a certified ISO 13485 Medical Device Manufacturer, meaning that they set and adhere to more stringent manufacturing standards than is required by law, formally assuring their product users that they build to a higher quality standard. As an American medical device manufacturer, Armedica also meets the regulatory requirements established by the FDA.
Their Electric Platform Mount Parallel Bars features an electronic height adjustability with a range of 26 inches to 48 inches, along with a manual width adjustability of 15 inches to 29 inches, and a 400 pound weight capacity on the hand rails. Often used for gait training and other forms of physical and rehabilitative therapy, these parallel bars can be used for a wide range of issues including amputation, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, stroke recovery, osteoarthritis, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, brain and spinal cord injuries, sports injuries and recovery after surgery.
The microprocessor control unit ensures synchronous operation of all four columns, while the memory buttons allow for storage and recall of four separate bar height settings. A user-friendly and conveniently located control panel digitally displays the exact bar height, and height monitoring functions guarantee reliable operation and a safety switch-off in case of a fault. Even in the highest bar position, heavy-gauge 1 and 1/2 inch diameter stainless steel handrails on three-section slimline lifting columns provide maximum lateral stability, and the platform itself is slip-resistant for additional security.
