Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, the Columbia-Inland Corporation has been committed to designing and manufacturing exceptional quality mobility devices that enhance the lives of their users since 1996. Their highly successful Power Pumper® has become a popular therapeutic mobility device among children, parents, educators and therapists and is intended for use by children ages five to eleven, with a 300 pound weight capacity. This award-winning 'ride-on' offers a unique pumping action that provides movement for both upper and lower extremities while also helping to develop trunk muscles.

The Power Pumper® holds great appeal for children of all ages and abilities, with even severely disabled children being able to safely use and enjoy this ride-on. They think it looks “cool”, especially when compared to many other special needs pediatric mobility devices on the market. Physical therapy sessions become much more fun and engaging with the Power Pumper®, and riding it is so enjoyable, the kids often don't want to stop. Educators with sedentary children in their programs have found that this innovative ride-on is a critical element in providing the motivation to become active. It is easy to learn and operate and because it is low to the ground, children with severe special needs can participate safely. Its highly durable blow-molded construction is able to hold up to the abuse it would typically receive daily in a physical education class, or in therapy sessions with multiple clients. Winner of the Industrial Design Excellence Award, the Power Pumper® additionally meets or exceeds all requirements as set forth by the United States ASTM F963-96a, European EN-71 and Canadian CRC 931 safety tests.

It has been proven to be effective in increasing muscle strength, endurance, motor coordination and extremity development. It helps children develop bilateral coordination, praxis or motor planning, posture stability, spatial awareness, directionality, muscle tone, visual skills, speech, social skills, esteem and confidence. “We are delighted to introduce the Power Pumper® from the Columbia-Inland Corporation to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “This device is revolutionizing the pediatric physical therapy field, helping children to actually look forward to therapy, while educators around the world are finding it to be quite the boon to helping get sedate and overweight kids to become more active.
