Greenway Equipment in San Diego, California, has introduced a new line of physical therapy equipment that is aimed at people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The company, founded by two doctors, James River and William D’Agostino, said the new equipment is designed to give people with developmental disabilities the same range of capabilities as those of their peers.
“The goal is to enable people to work in environments that are accessible and where they feel they have a lot of autonomy,” said James River’s vice president of physical education, Dr. Mark Wigdor.
“For example, a classroom or an office setting.”
The physical therapy products include a wheelchair, a headboard, and a crutch.
James River also says the products are available at other retailers.
According to Wigdar, James river is working with the San Diego City Council to develop a pilot program that will allow the company to provide the physical therapy devices at the City Council meeting in 2019.
As a result of the program, Jamesriver says it hopes to start offering the products in 2020.
