Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined in collaboration with Prime Engineering, Incorporated, to offer standing systems for people with physical and/or aging related disabilities to a larger consumer market. Headquartered in Fresno, California, Prime Engineering began in 1984 from one woman’s quest to find a standing solution for her own personal needs as a spinal cord injury patient with severe contractures. With much research, medical advice and expert input, Mary Wilson Boegel, President of Prime Engineering, along with her new company produced their first standing device, the Granstand, and this unit was the accepted clinical standard for over ten years. They have since updated this model with new versions, the Granstand II and Granstand III, which have set new standards for function, positioning and capability. Prime Engineering has always relied on input from doctors, therapists and end-users to create innovative lines of personal and clinical standing devices that are the most advanced in the market, and their primary motivation has continued to be to provide proper, safe standing solutions for people with physical and aging related disabilities.
One wonderful safety feature of their standing solutions is the ‘No Transfer – No Lift’ technology, along with advanced adjustability and multifunctional frames. When people cannot stand on their own for various reasons, such as aging, disease, injury or weakness, that lack of daily standing can negatively impact posture, cardiovascular function, bowel and bladder function, renal function, range of motion, spasticity, bone density and emotional health. Lack of standing correctly typically shows up as increased spasticity, loss of range in the lower extremities, hips, back and neck, and contractures. The advanced adjustability feature of the standing solution products from Prime Engineering helps tremendously to accomplish the goal of proper standing and weight bearing facilitation by enabling complete hip extension or mild hyperextension of the hips to fully load the lower extremities and allow the obliteration of contractures. These standing solution products supply the maximum benefits of proper standing, durability, function, safety and complete individual adjustments for an intimate and proper fitting unit.
Prime Engineering has expanded their line of standing systems to accommodate the therapeutic standing needs of both adult and pediatric clients. Their vision has always been that there is an art to standing and that this art is a balance between the focus on the individual and their unique needs and lifestyles, and the fit and function of the equipment that they manufacture. “We are proud to offer these excellent standing solutions from Prime Engineering to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Their products have been copied for concept, but never duplicated for function, and we know our customers will be very happy and satisfied with these lift-free and transfer-free standing systems to fulfill their own correct standing needs.”
