Headquartered in Hillsborough, North Carolina, Kaye Products was conceived by Janet and Ed Howle in 1977. Janet Howle, PT, MACT, C/NDT expressed concerns to her husband that the adaptive equipment available at that time did not always meet the needs of her pediatric patients. It was during this discussion that they both realized that they had the skills to positively address this problem, and they designed their first prone stander and corner chair products that they produced and shipped from their home workshop. As demand increased and their business expanded, the Howles turned their focus to mobility, which ultimately led to the invention of their popular Kaye Posture Control Walker.

“Whatever your positioning and mobility needs require, Kaye Products has got you covered."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Kaye Products, Incorporated, to offer their positioning, mobility and therapeutic equipment products to a wider consumer market. Headquartered in Hillsborough, North Carolina, Kaye Products was conceived by Janet and Ed Howle in 1977. Janet Howle, PT, MACT, C/NDT expressed concerns to her husband that the adaptive equipment available at that time did not always meet the needs of her pediatric patients. It was during this discussion that they both realized that they had the skills to positively address this problem, and they designed their first prone stander and corner chair products that they produced and shipped from their home workshop. As demand increased and their business expanded, the Howles turned their focus to mobility, which ultimately led to the invention of their popular Kaye Posture Control Walker.

Today, Kaye Products designs, develops and manufactures positioning products for seating and standing, products to enhance mobility, and therapeutic equipment for children and adults of various needs and abilities. Specifically designed to make walking more energy-efficient by improving postural alignment, the innovative Kaye Walkers are available in six basic frame designs. The 'B' Frame, their most popular posture control style walker, is offered in five sizes and can accommodate a multitude of accessories. Similar in design to the 'B' Frame, the 'R' Frame walkers come in three sizes, and are wider to accommodate orthotics or children who have wide hips and need more space within the frame. The 'C' Frame, designed for large teenagers or adults, can accommodate users up to 250 pounds. Created around the same principles as the Posture Control Walkers, the 'H' Frame walkers have a slightly different frame design to include fold-down seats which are helpful to users who are just beginning to walk, or have low endurance and need to take frequent breaks. The 'Y' Frame walkers offer anterior support for users requiring additional support in the upper body and shoulder areas to maintain proper alignment, and include a chest support. The 'My Red Walker' series features a child-friendly design with similar functionality as the smallest three sizes of the 'B' Frame walkers. All of the Kaye Walkers fold easily for transport and can be modified for unique and personal needs with a variety of accessories.

Kaye Products additionally offers a wide variety of products for seating and standing positioning, such as Kinder Chairs, Corner Chairs, Bolster Chairs, Benches and T-Seats, Tilting Tables, Dynamic Standers, Vertical Standers, and the Kaye Posture System, along with therapeutic equipment such as their Therapy Bolsters and Stands, Ball Holders, Nesting Benches and the Kaye Play Frame. “We are proud to introduce more consumers to the wonderful adaptive equipment from Kaye Products,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Whatever your positioning and mobility needs require, Kaye Products has got you covered. From the smallest child to the largest adult, people of all ages and abilities will appreciate the unsurpassed quality, functionality and durability of these products for individual use, or for use by therapists with their patients.”
