Yes. The Kinder model is slightly smaller to fit younger children and the Original model is for older children. If your child is between 2 to 5 years old, the Kinder model would be best. For children 5 to 12 years old, choose the Original model. Either Pumper Car® vehicle will accommodate a child who weighs 300 pounds or less.

Maybe. The Pumper Car® Kinder™, Original™, and Uniflex™ models have received approval to use the healthcare HCPCS code A9300. Some insurance companies may cover part or all the cost of a Pumper Car unit that’s been prescribed to patients. We encourage you to talk with your child’s physician to see how a prescription for a Pumper Car vehicle at home would benefit your child, then call your insurance company to find out if the Pumper Car device would be covered.

Definitely! It’s a full-body workout for children of almost all abilities. And what’s great is that the kids just think they’re having fun while getting exercise.

Most children are able to figure out the push-pull rowing technique within a few minutes. Children with disabilities may need some adult guidance initially. However, once children understand the pushing and pulling technique of using both their arms and legs, they’re off racing around.

With our award-winning patented propulsion system, riders use both their arms and legs to achieve a full-body workout. Physical and occupational therapists around the country encourage their clients to use Pumper Car vehicles to help with the development of muscle strength, motor skills and balance, along with many other therapeutic benefits.

As with any medical device, it’s important to consult your physician first.

This exercise can range from full-body, vigorous workouts to moderate activity for those with limited strength and physical capabilities.
