Parents of Children with Disabilities Find Sources for Funding Mobility Products

The Power Pumper benefits special needs kids

Oregon City, OR (PRWEB) July 7, 2009

Columbia-Inland Corporation (CIC) today announced the latest results of its research to find sources across all 50 states that fund mobility products for children with developmental disabilities. These resources are listed on the company’s Website at http://www.powerpumper.com .

“All children love to move around,” said Mark Shih, M.D., medical director at Columbia-Inland Corporation. “Mobility products like the Power Pumper have been proven helpful for children with autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy and other developmental, sensory and learning disorders, because they provide these children the fun of movement as well as therapy.”

The company also recently hired facilitators to cover all 50 states and work with parents, therapists and hospitals seeking funding to buy Power Pumper as a therapeutic device. Some of the larger states, like California, have more than one facilitator. Facilitators for each territory are ready to help parents, therapists and hospitals looking for a therapeutic mobility product develop their applications.

“Families supporting children with developmental disabilities need choices for mobility just as much as for their other children,” said Craig Kiser, M.D. and board chair at Columbia-Inland Corporation. “Finding sources for funding mobility products are scarce and we’ve put them all in one place to help them.”

Parents, therapists or hospitals seeking funding can go to http://www.powerpumper.com, click on the funding tab to find their state and review the funding sources available. Or they can call 1-888-215-7867 (in Oregon, 1-503-657-6676) to ask how to connect with a facilitator.

“Now that we have resources for assisting with funding for all 50 states, we’re working to connect families with funding resources,” said Dr. Kiser. “It’s a time-consuming process, but we’re doing it to help children with disabilities and their families.”

Stay Independent: Simple Mobility Aid Helps Disabled Get In and Out of Cars, Studies Find

No Comments 15 December 2010

Victoria, BC (PRWEB) December 7, 2006

Once the dust had settled, a simple low-tech invention came out on top. Twice.

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Boston conducted an exhaustive study on vehicle modifications which aid the elderly in their use of cars. Among the very best solutions for vehicle access, they found, was an invention called Handybar®.

This finding was backed up by the Cleveland Clinic’s Arthritis Newsletter, which studied the HandyBar and found it to be the easiest, most helpful new disability product to aid drivers with arthritis.

The Handybar is a patented, award winning mobility aid that can help provide independence to millions of permanently or temporarily disabled users. A portable support handle, the Handybar slips into a vehicle’s “striker”, the U-shaped bracket that appears on a car’s door pillar and keeps the door firmly closed. Once in position, the Handybar helps the mobility challenged get in and out of today’s lower cars and higher SUVs with confidence, dignity and ease.

The Handybar works on virtually all cars and requires no modifications. Small and light at only 9″ long and one pound, the Handybar disability product is made of an extremely tough alloy and is capable of supporting 350 pounds. It can be stored in a car’s glove box, door pocket or center console for quick access.

The Handybar is an ideal mobility aid for:


    People with arthritis, back or knee problems

    Those who are recovering from surgery or sports injuries

    Pregnant women, or

    Anyone who’d like an occasional helping hand getting in and out of cars

In addition to being an effective mobility aid, Handybart can even help save lives. Equipped with an integrated side window breaker and recessed seatbelt cutter, the Handybar could prove an invaluable escape device in the event of an accident.

The Handybar is available at a variety of retailers across Canada and the United States.
