Equipment Shop -of Bedford, Massachusetts was established over 40 years ago to bring affordable equipment to families, schools and agencies to enhance the development of children with disabilities. After many years of selling therapy balls and larger equipment, the operation turned to focus on oral motor equipment, especially their Maroon Spoons and Flexi Cut Cups. All proudly made in the USA! Owners; Carrie studied Occupational Therapy at Tufts University and Ken, engineering at Northeastern. Carrie then worked in a progressive therapeutic preschool and Ken in his family's manufacturing and sales business. Carrie's school had a difficult time finding suitable equipment for the classroom. Back then, it was common for therapists to make their own equipment as no one in the USA was manufacturing needed items. With Carrie's inventions and Ken's access to a complete development shop at the family's company to build almost anything, they began researching sources and developed designs for equipment not available in the U.S.A. to make it available. Everyone at Equipment Shop is glad to be part of the lives of these special kids.
