Skis, bikes & more for those with disabilities at Rehabilitystores.com

ALLENTOWN, Pa., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The virtual lifestyle store at http://www.rehabilitystores.com offers thousands of unique products for those with disabilities or special needs, the aging and their families. More than a store for wheelchairs and crutches, rehabilitystores.com offers products to enhance the lifestyle of those who also happen to be disabled.

Rehability, the one-of-a-kind retail store and its associated website has an inventory of products for recreation, wellness, communications, education, home and daily living, mobility, vision, clothing and children's merchandise. It is all geared to help those with special needs brought about by disabilities, aging, illness or injury.

Among its product offerings are: a talking microwave oven, enabling those with limited eyesight to cook; a TV and computer screen enlarger, which doubles the size of the actual screen for those with visual impairment; a talking alarm clock; water and snow skis; a bicycle for those with limited lower limb mobility; a pin ball machine for those with limited upper body mobility; bowling equipment for those with limited hand motion; a camping tent to accommodate wheelchairs or scooters; dolls using crutches or wheelchairs, and thousands of other toys, sporting equipment or lifestyle devices to restore independent and optimal living.

"Rehability.com is a unique online store in that its sole purpose is to help individuals maintain or acquire as independent a lifestyle as possible," said Meg Alonso, Rehability's Business Development Manager. "While our physical store draws a large population of shoppers, we recognize there are many more throughout the country who will now be able to benefit from online access to our products and services."

Rehability debuted in 2006 as a 3,300-square-foot walk-in retail lifestyle store at the Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital in Allentown, Pa. "With Rehability's online expansion, gift givers and caregivers can shop for those with special needs no matter where they live," said Alonso.

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network is a rehabilitation leader, offering a continuum of care for those with physical and cognitive disabilities and specializing in assistive and rehabilitation technology.
