Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has recently joined into a distribution agreement with Southpaw Enterprises, Incorporated, to offer their therapy play Bolster Scooters to a wider consumer marketplace. Southpaw's cutting edge neurodevelopmental and sensory integration products offer a wide range of therapy applications for the clinic, classroom and home. Backing up their products with insight, education and resources for learning more about DSI and related neurodevelopmental disorders, Southpaw firmly believes that this information and research will lead to greater strides in the progress of understanding and treating these disorders. Their products offer unparalleled quality, performance and function to help children and adults with special needs, their families, therapists, teachers and other professionals to solve problems and meet new challenges.
The new Bolster Scooters from Southpaw are the perfect tool for bilateral motor coordination. Two sizes cover a wide range of young users, with a 200 pound working weight capacity for both. Young clients can be positioned in prone, and then they can use their feet and arms to propel themselves across the room in a fun race. Or they can be sat upright with a hold on the wooden handle to practice walking. Sitting astride this movable surface aids in the development of proper balance reactions, while therapists can also work with clients on extension patterns. The user can begin in a straddle position, then can turn in sitting and move forward to hands and feet, which helps develop important transitions. Both sizes feature a Baltic birch base mounted on four freely rotating casters, and a phthalate-free, lead-free, and easy-to-clean vinyl covered sturdy foam half-barrel bolster sits on top of the base.
“We are delighted to introduce more consumers to the therapeutic benefits of the new Bolster Scooters from Southpaw Enterprises,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Therapists, teachers and parents will love how this therapy play equipment improves coordination and postural mechanisms, while children will love the fun that these innovative scooters bring to therapy time.
