Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Pedia Pals to offer their pediatric medical supplies and equipment to a larger professional medical marketplace. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Pedia Pals is a Women and Veteran Owned Small Business. After being launched by Ed and Wendy Powell in 1998, the company acquired ZooPals®, a manufacturer of pediatric exam tables in the shapes of smiling animals, which went along perfectly with their own manufacture of pediatric medical supplies and equipment designed to take the 'sting' out of medical care for young patients. Pedia Pals is now run by second-generation family owners, Jon and Amanda Powell, who both served in the Air Force and are Air Force Academy graduates with Mechanical Engineering degrees.
Helping to bridge the gap between children and medical professionals, the latex-free pediatric medical supplies and equipment from Pedia Pals provide a calming and entertaining focus for children, while they also help to improve diagnosis and treatment of these often frightened patients. Their product lines include medical instruments, accessories, exam tables, and child-oriented equipment for waiting rooms and exam rooms. Ann Kochsiek, founder of ZooPals, who is now the V.P. of Marketing for Pedia Pals, was the originator of the child-friendly pediatric exam tables now manufactured by Pedia Pals. When her son was diagnosed with leukemia at age four, Kochsiek found that taking him to the hospital for treatment involved examinations on an exam table that her son and other children agreed was “cold, scary and very unfriendly.” She then designed and patented a variety of animal-shaped exam tables that have become pediatric office favorites all over the world.
The products from Pedia Pals help to transform any cold and scary doctor's office into a fun and relaxing environment for children, helping to reduce anxiety and fear about visiting the doctor. It has been clinically proven that kid-friendly medical environments lead to better health outcomes for the young patient, and help to create a better overall experience for both patient and doctor alike. “We are thrilled to introduce these fantastic pediatric medical supplies and equipment from Pedia Pals to more professional medical consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Create a totally child-friendly healthcare environment with the fun and functional instruments, accessories, exam tables, and pain distraction kits from Pedia Pals. Their animal-themed Exam Table Environment Kits include the exam table, wall decals, a child care kit, and everything you need to transform your office into a child's delight! When your small patients and their parents are relaxed and comfortable, exam procedures go faster, communication is easier, and the patient-doctor bond is stronger.”
