OUR STORY

Hello Friends, In the fall of 2015, my younger sister’s husband had a terrible stroke.  He was in ICU for months with every sort of tube imaginable in and out of his body…  Reggi was at his side 24/7 and only left him once a week to go home to shower, sleeping in his hospital room in a chair all those months! Fortunately her twin sister Regina, was able to bring her mail and things from home. When Tom came home, his need for caregiver assistance was at a very high level.  In spite of this, Reggi refused to put him in a nursing home, and instead continued her 24/7 care of him all alone.   Waiting on the system for him to start physical therapy was unbearable since he was confined to either a chair or a bed, and Reggi did not want to let his muscles atrophy more for these many weeks longer.  So she looked for a solution, but found none. This is where our Dad stepped in…  Our Dad cannot enjoy a marshmallow roast camping with us kids without coming up with some new way to roast more of them better…  So, he channeled this creative ingenuity to help his daughter care for her husband better.  This was the beginning of the PT Trekker – the device that gets you back on your feet, so you can get back to being you.  The device assists the caregiver, giving them peace of mind that their loved one is protected from falling, and giving freedom to the patient from the confines of the wheelchair.  This is where I, the older sister was asked to step in.  I’m just a farm girl who spends her days milking four dairy cows, cleaning their wonderful piles of “black gold,” picking berries, canning our garden produce and making nearly everything from scratch… so taking on a project like this was the last thing I ever thought I’d be doing.  But when my husband saw the video he took over all my chores on the farm and sent me 6 states away to see it for myself and start the process of making it available to all of us out here struggling to care for our loved ones at home who need safe alternatives. Though the product was designed for a stroke victim, the PT Trekker empowers individuals to free themselves from that debilitating Fear of Falling restoring independence to confidently begin their “Trek” back to normalcy in safety.   Many of us begin to experience a Fear-of- Falling as the days of our lives pass longer and we find ourselves with debilitating conditions such as ALS, MS, MD, RA, CP, Post Hip or Knee Replacement surgery, the PT Trekker can free you to exercise more without that fear-of-falling imprisoning you.

Regina (Reggi's Twin Sister) “You can tell, he’s more confident – and it motivated him to exercise more since he wasn’t afraid of falling. You knew it made him feel at ease and so he progressed a lot faster.”
