Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution collaboration with the Medi-Kid Company to offer their pediatric arm immobilizers to a more comprehensive consumer marketplace. Medi-Kid was founded by Melinda Siwek in 1984 when she came up with her own design of a pediatric arm immobilizer for her son, following his first cleft palate surgery. Siwek had no idea at the time that she would be starting a very successful company and rewarding career, she simply needed something to keep her son from injuring himself. Sometimes, the best ideas we have for our loved ones can become great ideas for the world at large as well.
Delightfully designed and aesthetically appealing to young wearers, Medi-Kid's Pedi-Wrap™ Pediatric Arm Immobilizers are used to safely and quickly control arm movements to prevent young patients from pulling out feeding tubes, tracheostomies, stitches, putting objects in their mouths, and from inflicting injuries to themselves. Siwek, along with many other parents of special needs children, has discovered that these simple, comfortable immobilizers are much easier to use than outdated solutions like bulky and uncomfortable casts and bandages.
As doctors, nurses, caregivers and parents have requested a larger variety of immobilizer sizes and styles, Medi-Kid has expanded their product line accordingly, now including immobilizers for legs, as well as styles and sizes for adults. They have also developed immobilizers that can fit over IV tubes and all of the Medi-Kid immobilizer products have the ability to be utilized as effective bandage covers and are additionally recommended for splinting arms to maintain joint range of motion and muscle length.
“We are proud to introduce more consumers to the easy-to-use immobilizer products from the Medi-Kid Company,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “We offer their full line of products, including arm and leg immobilizers, and sizes and styles for adults, as well. Using these products for our own special needs children, we have found that they work beautifully, and we are so glad to be able to offer these immobilizer devices to other parents and their special needs children. The Medi-Kid immobilizer products bring the utmost in function, comfort and performance, and truly help to create an easier and more convenient recovery time for both children and their parents.”
