TOPIC: Ride-on exercise toy for kids with special needs

Ride-on exercise toy for kids with special needs 3 years 6 months ago #212

Pumper Cars are a popular new exercise device used by children’s hospitals, physical therapists and organizations serving families with children who have special needs. A University of Michigan study supports the use of Pumper Cars for more successful exercise therapy (news release below).

The unique aspect of these ride-on toys is the rowing machine type propulsion design that offers vigorous upper and lower body workouts, yet is fun for kids to ride. We’ve received amazing stories from healthcare professionals, teachers and families about how Pumper Cars have made a huge difference in children’s lives.
