“This is the perfect transport solution for children using a variety of casts, offering the ultimate in comfort and safety, and it also fits in well with car seat loaner programs."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Snug Seat, Incorporated, to offer their BRITAX brand Hippo Special Needs Car Seat to a larger consumer audience. As a leader in mobile safety for over seventy years, BRITAX offers a legacy of leadership in the development of innovations that enhance the safety of child car seats and that improve the ease of their installation and use. Their commitment to improving child safety is unparalleled and their products undergo the most rigorous testing in the industry. They not only manufacture seats for the general public, but also for the medical community to service children with special needs. These special needs seating solutions are distributed through the Snug Seat company, who has been providing innovative products for children with special needs since 1987.
The Hippo Special Needs Car Seat from Snug Seat offers a safe and unique solution for transporting children in Hip Spica casts, Ilfeld splints and Broomstick Casts. Every year thousands of babies and children undergo surgery to correct leg and hip problems and must be casted for several weeks while they recover, a situation that can make it difficult for them to fit into 'regular' child car seats and comply with state DVM laws. As the ONLY child restraint device on the market specifically designed to accommodate most casts, the Hippo Special Needs Car Seat helps to ensure that these fragile children are transported securely restrained and protected from additional trauma.
The Hippo's 5-Point restraint harness with a one-pull harness strap adjuster allows for an easy, secure fit every time, and the wedge positioning system and washable nylon cover make this car seat ideal for utilization by multiple children in loaner programs. “We are proud to introduce more consumers to the BRITAX Hippo Special Needs Car Seat from Snug Seat,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This is the perfect transport solution for children using a variety of casts, offering the ultimate in comfort and safety, and it also fits in well with car seat loaner programs. We are delighted to offer this, and other great seating solutions from Snug Seat to our customers.”
