Wheel to Walk

Wheel to Walk 3rd annual Spin Your Wheels All Wheel Rolling event! 

This fun crowd gathered to loop a one mile course at Oaks Park amusement park in Sellwood OR.

This event is to showcase all the equipment for children purchased by Wheel to Walk that insurance won't cover.

It is always a joy for us to partner with the Wheel to Walk Foundation. It is a wonderful thing to see a child get the mobility device they so desperately need!

Summer time!

The sun is shining and children are almost out of school. If you are looking for something active and fun to get your children outdoors this summer the Pumper Car is the perfect fit! 

The Pumper Car® is an innovative, award-winning, therapeutic mobility device for children ages 5 to 12. The Pumper Car® Jr. uses the same patented technology and is sized for children 3 years to 6 years. The unique pumping action provides movement for both upper and lower extremities, and helps build trunk muscles. Both devices are used in therapy and physical education activities for building endurance and muscle development.

ADHD updates

Learn about new findings concerning ADHD medications below. 

An important article was just published in JAMA Pediatrics, about school children treated with medications for ADHD in Scotland. It's a study of 766,000 Scottish children followed between 2009 to 2013 of which 7413 had ADHD, and were treated with medication. Despite treatment the study documents worse education outcomes (absence, exclusion, lower academic attainment, left school early, and eventually higher unemployment). They also had more hospitalizations overall and more injuries. For the full article click Educational and Health Outcomes of Children Treated for ADHD 

 

Why is this important? Because it documents that pills are insufficient treatment for ADHD. They must to have integration and means to control their hyperactivity.

The pumper car does both!

Heart Health Month

February is Heart Health Month and Pumper Car is proud to be working along with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to raise awareness about the childhood obesity epidemic in our country.

"Childhood obesity is a national epidemic. Nearly 1 out of 3 children ages (2-19) in the United States is overweight or obese."_ www.healthiergeneration.org

What is the ESSA? 

"In 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The Every Student Succeeds Act is a real game changer in that it sets a new framework for elementary and secondary education, eliminating “core- subjects,” and shifting to a “well-rounded education.” Unfortunately, NCLB led to funding and program cuts for health and physical education – subjects just as important as math and reading – due to the emphasis on student performance and standardized testing. 18 subjects are included in the definition of a well-rounded education, including health and physical education. So what does this mean for health and PE? Being included the definition of a “well-rounded” education, health and PE are now eligible for federal education funding. School districts will have the ability to access funds for health and PE for low-income schools, professional development for teachers, student support and academic enrichment grants, and after school and summer programs."_American Heart Association American Kids Move With Heart #ORKidsMoveWithHeart

How the Pumper Car fits in!

The Pumper Car has already been part of assisting several physical education programs around the country. Pumper Car is not only widely diverse in how it can be used, but it's an inclusive devise as well! Because of the multiple muscles being worked, they experience the health benefits after just a few minutes. Most importantly Children of ALL abilities are able to hop on adding the necessary physical activity to their day. 

Join us! Spread the word about childhood obesity, and promote physical education by sharing this blog post, contact us directly, or going to ESSA
