“It is no wonder that RCAI orthoses products have become such an integral part of multiple managed care systems and cost containment programs both domestically and internationally."
Elberton, GA (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution collaboration with Restorative Care of America, Incorporated (RCAI), to offer their Multi Podus® System 2000 Foot Orthosis with Transfer Attachment and Ankle Strap to a wider consumer marketplace. Dedicated to the manufacture of superior quality rehabilitative and orthopedic orthoses, RCAI brings more than 35 years of unsurpassed quality, innovation and industry leadership into the creation of their restorative care products. Handcrafted in their manufacturing facility in St. Petersburg, Florida, the orthotic products from RCAI are developed under the guidance of certified orthotists. These products specifically address the effects of neurological conditions and immobility associated with chronic disease and traumatic injuries, such as joint contractures and pressure ulcers/bedsores.
RCAI originated the popular Multi Podus® System (MPO), a system that continues to set the industry standard to this day for the correction and prevention of plantar flexion contractures, hip rotation and heel pressure sores. The MPO 2000 Foot Orthosis with Transfer Attachment and Ankle Strap highlights a breathable foam liner that helps wick away moisture from the skin, helping to maintain healthy skin integrity. This clever orthosis floats the heel, helping to enhance blood circulation crucial to healing by eliminating friction or pressure on the heel. By supplying continuous counterforce to the plantar surface of the foot, the dynamic flex action of the MPO 2000 assists in the correction of foot and ankle contractures, deformity, and foot drop.
The adjustable toe post alleviates pressure on the toes, and has the ability to be positioned to the side to address malleolus and lateral ulcers. Functional alignment and the control of hip and leg rotation can be achieved by positioning the rotator bar to the side as well. A transfer attachment assists with stand-up transfer, while preventing cross-contamination from floor to bed. The MPO 2000 foot orthosis is available in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate male, female and pediatric users.
“We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the Multi Podus® 2000 Foot Orthosis from Restorative Care of America,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “ It is no wonder that RCAI orthoses products have become such an integral part of multiple managed care systems and cost containment programs both domestically and internationally.

We are proud to offer this, and all of the fantastic orthoses from RCAI to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
