“Now wheelchair users of every age can get into the swing of things and take their wheelchairs along for the ride!"
Elberton, GA (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution alliance with SportsPlay Equipment, Incorporated, to offer their ADA-compliant Wheelchair Swing Platforms to a more comprehensive consumer marketplace. Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, SportsPlay is a premier designer and manufacturer of play and sports equipment for children and adults of all ages and abilities. Since 1996, they have been creating a widely diverse line of equipment that offers exceptional safety, durability and value, and their products are utilized by schools, parks, recreational centers, fitness facilities, day-cares, and playgrounds as well as private residence backyards.
As a member in good standing of IPEMA, the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association, the products from SportsPlay have been certified to conform with the ASTM-F-1487 requirements. Their Wheelchair Swing Platforms have also been certified to meet ADA-compliant guidelines to ensure the safety of every user, regardless of ability. Especially designed to accommodate both adult and pediatric wheelchairs of every make and model, the front and rear ramps of these swing platforms allow easy access onto and off from the vinyl-coated, non-skid steel platform. The lockable platform can be attached to almost any swing frame, and requires certain ground space and anterior ground space dimensions to ensure safety for the users of this equipment.
To further independence, an optional Pull Chain is available that enables users to lower the ramps to enter, propel themselves with swinging, and then exit the platform on their own. The Wheelchair Swing Platform is available in an adult size and a juvenile size, along with options to add either a permanent or portable swing frame. “We are excited to introduce more consumers to the ADA-compliant Wheelchair Swing Platforms from SportsPlay Equipment,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Now wheelchair users of every age can get into the swing of things and take their wheelchairs along for the ride! No hassles with transfers, no fears of falling out of a swing seat, these ADA-compliant swing platforms simply offer pure joy and the exhilaration of swinging movement. We are proud to offer these Wheelchair Swing Platforms, and all of the fun and innovative play and sports equipment from SportsPlay to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
