Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Ottobock HealthCare to offer their Robby Pediatric Bathing Support to a wider consumer audience. Currently in its third generation as a privately held company, Ottobock was established in Germany in 1919, and opened its doors in the USA in 1958. Utilizing innovative technology, world class education and superior service, Ottobock offers innovative products and services to help people increase and retain their physical independence, regardless of individual mobility challenges. Their wide range of superior quality healthcare products include prosthetics and their world famous C-Leg®; orthotics; bracing and supports; rehab and mobility products; manual and power wheelchairs; pediatric mobility and wheelchairs; seating and positioning; neurostimulation; standing devices; walkers; bath safety; and bathing and lying support.
Ottobock's Robby Bathing Support offers a lightweight and ergonomic support solution for bathing children with special needs. Available in two sizes, this bathing support adapts optimally to the body proportions of the child. With the ability to be re-tightened, the trough-shaped net upholstery ensures stable side guidance and a low pelvic position which helps to keep the hip bent while preventing over-extension, and achieving optimal relaxation for the user. With various seating and laying positions easily adjustable using continuous ratchet joints, children are always ideally positioned and supported in every bath. Parents and caregivers can easily adjust the head, back, seat and lower leg support areas separately to ensure the ultimate in comfort for both the child and the caregiver/parent. Additional head support pads and belt systems are available to provide optimal support for clinical pictures and procedures.
The Robby Pediatric Bathing Support requires very little water in the bathtub due to its low structural height, and can be folded down to a convenient and lightweight travel size. This unique bathing support also grows in back height and seating depth thanks to its telescoping tubes, effectively growing along with the child, offering continued and durable use for many years to come. “We are delighted to introduce more consumers to the fantastic benefits of the Robby Bathing Support from Ottobock,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This pediatric bathing support offers a safe, practical, functional and comfortable solution for both the caregiver or parent and the patient or child.
