Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Easy Walking Incorporated, to offer gait trainers for physical therapy to a larger consumer market. Headquartered in Maple Glen, Pennsylvania, Easy Walking is a premier designer and manufacturer of gait trainers to assist adults and children who have an impaired ability to stand or walk due to an injury, disability or illness. The Easy Walking gait trainers may even help people to stand and walk, even though they might not be able to do either on their own, offering an invaluable alternative to life in a wheelchair. If a potential user does have some moderate lower extremity strength, these gait training development devices from Easy Walking will help enable easier standing and walking, even when the user has balance problems. These devices can also be used hands-free, so arm strength and coordination are not required to be able to use them.
Easy Walking offers two dynamic product lines; Up n' Go® and Up n' Free®. As the leading standard in true gait development, the Up n' Go® can be used by therapists and caregivers to help improve specific problem areas in their patients, such as range of motion, balance and lower extremity strength. This lightweight, adjustable, partial weight-bearing device provides safety and support that competitors cannot match, and it can be used at home to continue improvement and exercise in a safe environment to further the efforts of correct and sustainable gait training. The Up n' Free® is a gait trainer equipped with brand new dynamic partial weight-bearing support for added safety, functionality and independence. Patients can transfer by themselves, transition from sit-to-stand, and move hands-free as this dynamic lifting support helps users walk while expending less energy. Not only does this device allow tired patients to sit and rest in any position, but it also stabilizes the pelvis to provide a safer walking experience.
Both the Up n' Go® and the Up n' Free® product lines additionally offer comfortable pelvis and trunk control, constant and steady sit-to-stand support, and normal gait control, with the lifting support of both product lines being adjustable so that users who are able to progress in regaining, or retaining their leg strength can progress from high support to lower, or no support. “We are delighted to introduce these incomparable gait trainers from Easy Walking to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Therapists, caregivers and patients will all love the Up n' Go® and the Up n' Free® product lines that we offer from Rehabmart.com, as it is the input from folks like this, combined with the expertise and therapy experience of the designers at Easy Walking that have all contributed to the creation of the best gait trainers available on the market today.”
