The PedREST

They say Rome wasn’t built in a day. It’s the same with creating a new product – especially when you’re an individual. There is so much to do and learn that at times it can be overwhelming…and often discouraging. It’s been over 15 years since we started our road to making little kids safer on ambulances. The PedREST Story & Creating a Prototype is our way of sharing that journey with you.

But we didn’t want this page to just be about us…because so many others took a similar path. It is with that in mind, we dedicate this page to those people: the people who care. Not everything you see here has made it to market…some may never get there. We can’t promise everything here will be the “best in class” – we can promise it will be “best in heart” – and by that we mean everything here was created because someone loved “someone little” and wanted to do better for them. And because of that we’re going to give them a chance to show you what they created and why they believe it will make a difference. Then we ask you to judge for yourself what you think…and if you like what you see, please show them some support & tell them.
