When Hulet and Megan Smith became therapists in 1993 and 1997 respectively, they couldn't have known how important their education would be one day for their family. Sophia, the eldest of their five children, was born with Hydrocephalus, Ventricular Megaly and Cortical Vision Impairment. Her diagnosis, now classified as Cerebral Palsy was severe. Her visual cortex was profoundly damaged. Doctors had to put a shunt into her brain sixteen days following birth to relieve pressure.
Hulet and Megan were devastated by the diagnosis, but soon committed themselves to doing whatever it would take to find answers for Sophia. As therapists, they already knew a lot, but over the course of Sophia's life, they have gone to extraordinary lengths to search out the latest in care for brain injured children.
One of the discoveries they made was the difference that a hyperbaric chamber can make for some patients who have suffered brain trauma. By expanding blood flow to the brain, damaged cells may grow with greater organization. Hulet and Megan purchased a hyperbaric chamber in 2003. Hulet and Sophia would spend long hours inside it together.
Additionally, Hulet and Megan unified their efforts and became committed to implementing frequent, targeted, therapeutic interventions for Sophia. Their program was based upon optimal organic nutrition, omega 3 oils with DHA and EPA, suit therapy, Thera-Togs, and an intense sensory stimulation program. Instead of relying upon a single frame of reference or mode of treatment, they implemented a broad range of interventions using theories from the Bobaths, Ayers, Doman, Hyman, Weil, Oswal and others.
In 2007, having learned about the groundbreaking work of a man named Dr. Gunvant Oswal in Pune, India, Hulet traveled to meet him and to review the results of his studies using an Ayurvedic homeopathic medicine that produces improvements in 70% of patients. Hulet's work with Dr. Oswal is explained here: HuletSmith.com/India
Sophia has far exceeded the expectations of her doctors. Today, she is 100 percent medication free and has progressed from a blind, profoundly brain injured child, to a young girl who walks, reads and writes. She has become wonderfully outgoing, a delight to be around – an inspiration to many.
As a result, Hulet and Megan have committed themselves to the mission of empowering caregivers and parents through consultation and education. Understanding what a difference an individualized rehabilitation program can make, they founded Rehabmart and purposed it's mission to provide targeted solutions to those who need it.
As Hulet says, "Because of what we've had to go through as a family, we're passionate about therapy and about delivering the latest technology products, nutrition and resources to those who need it. We strive to connect caregivers with the tools and techniques that can lead to wellness."
Rehabmart has become a leader in providing rehabilitation products and solutions. We are passionate about helping others in the same way that we ourselves have been helped. We see ourselves as your partners in finding the best therapeutic solutions for the challenges you face.
Mike became an Occupational Therapist in 1993, not knowing that his chosen profession would be training for future challenges with his own child. Amy earned a degree in music and education, which also helped prepare her for the unique circumstances which would come.
Today, Mike and Amy have two beautiful daughters. Their youngest, Ansley, was born in 2003 with developmental brain damage that has impaired her at all levels - physically, cognitively, and socially.
Their oldest daughter, Hannah, is a talented pianist and vocalist. She is currently attending college and has a passion for the arts.
Through all of the struggles of raising a special needs child, Mike and Amy have discovered many blessings along their journey - like unconditional love, patience and perseverance.
Ansley continues to grow and learn with a personalized home program developed by her parents which includes age-appropriate academics, life-skills training, and developmental activities.
Mike and Amy are proactively engaged with several non-profits. They share a passion for supporting research, program development, and the creation of non-profit, communal, independent living environments specifically designed for adults living and aging with developmental disabilities.
