Date:10/10/2007

ALLENTOWN, Pa., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network has expanded its nationally recognized and one-of-a-kind retail store, Rehability. The virtual store at http://www.rehabilitystores.com with its thousands of special products offers the capability of secure online shopping specifically for those with disabilities, special needs or who are aging, and their caregivers.

"Rehability offers a large selection of products that help individuals maintain or acquire as independent a lifestyle as possible," says Meg Alonso, Rehability's Business Development Manager.

Rehability debuted in 2006 as a 3,300-square-foot walk-in lifestyle store at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network in Allentown, Pa. Its inventory of products include recreation, wellness, communication, education, home and daily living, mobility, vision and children's merchandise -- all geared to help those with special needs. Rehability has expanded its offerings with a comprehensive list of merchandise available at http://www.rehabilitystores.com for the shopper who prefers the convenience of shopping online.

Rehabilitystores.com's online inventory is as unique as the store's clientele. Here you can find a talking microwave oven, enabling those with limited eyesight to cook, and a TV and computer screen enlarger, which doubles the size of the actual screen for those with visual impairment.

You will also find a talking alarm clock, adaptive water and snow skies and a bicycle for those with limited lower limb mobility, a pin ball machine for those with limited upper-body mobility and bowling equipment for those with limited hand motion.

In addition, a camping tent to accommodate wheelchairs or scooters, dolls using crutches or wheel chairs, or thousands of other toys, sporting equipment or lifestyle devices to restore independence and optimal living, can all be found at Rehability.

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. More than 36,000 people come to Good Shepherd each year for specialized programs in stroke, orthopedics, brain injury, spinal cord injury, pediatrics, amputation and more. Good Shepherd Penn Partners, a partnership of Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network and the University of Pennsylvania Health System, will provide post-acute care in Philadelphia starting July 2008.
