Rehability's expanded product list includes everything from a talking microwave oven that allows those with limited eyesight to cook without fear of injury to dolls made with crutches and wheelchairs.

For the home office, there is a TV and computer screen enlarger, which doubles the size of the actual screen. Customers can purchase these items without leaving the comforts of their own home by visiting www.rehabilitystores.com on their home computer.

"We understand a majority of our customers may not be able to visit the store due to their disability or lack of proximity," says Alonso. "With this online option, our customers can do it all from their own computer no matter where they live."

Rehability, Good Shepherd's 3,300-square-foot walk-in and online store, debuted in 2006 with a lifestyle product line that includes products for recreation, wellness, communication, education, home and daily living, mobility, vision and children's merchandise.
