Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution alliance with Kaye Products, Incorporated, to offer their Posture Control posterior walkers to a wider consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Hillsborough, North Carolina, Kaye Products is a superior quality designer and manufacturer of adaptive positioning equipment, mobility aids and therapy products for special needs infants, children and young adults. Their product lines include tricycles, tables and desks, seating solutions, standers, walkers for anterior support and walkers for posture control.
Also referred to as posterior walkers, or reverse walkers, the Kaye Posture Control Walkers are available in a variety of sizes and designs, including a two-wheeled format and a four-wheeled format, to fit everyone from toddlers to small adults. Specifically designed to facilitate postural alignment, balance and components of gait training, these walkers require the user to face away from the rear bars, and toward the open end of the walker, facilitating a more upright posture. Handgrips on the sides of these walkers encourage improved upper extremity positioning, while the rear horizontal bars help the user to step forward. Unlike traditional, forward walkers, the Posture Control Walkers eliminate the abnormal two-footed stance when a user stops and moves the walker further to the front. Better balance is achieved by the centering of the users over their own feet within the walker, and walking is less energy consuming.
The Kaye Posture Control Walkers offer a wide assortment of special options for perfect customization for every unique user including forearm supports, pelvic stabilizers, swivel limiters, guide handles, silent rear wheels, all-terrain wheels, an extensor assist center pad and a suspension conversion kit. “We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the amazing benefits of the Posture Control Walkers from Kaye Products,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “These innovative posterior/reverse walkers are perfect for improving step and stride length, cadence, velocity and energy use, and with the variety of sizes and options, everyone will be sure to find exactly the right choice for their child’s or young adult’s special requirements. We are proud to offer these walkers, and all of the fantastic adaptive and therapeutic equipment from Kaye Products to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
