Whether it’s for their often-outdated fashion sense, dry sense of humor (dad jokes, really on dads love them), or their scrape-the-dirt-off parenting style, dads are often the butt of parenting jokes for their lack of mother-like sympathy and overall parenting.
Statistically, it is true, compared to the average mother; the average father does nowhere near the same amount of parenting. In fact, a recent study tallied up the cost of the average father’s household responsibilities and found that if they were to be paid for it, the average father would make a salary of $25,709. Compare this to the recent study that found the average mother should have a salary of $115,432 based off of her household responsibilities. It’s easy to see why dads are often the butt of jokes.
Despite the ridicule and the lack of mother-like parenting styles, many of us can accredit our fathers with teaching us how to ride a bike, play sports, camp outdoors, change oil or a flat tire, and how to grill any sort of sustenance perfectly.
Fathers play a very important role in the development, growth and parenting of children and deserve recognition for it. For this reason, in 1909 Sonora Dodd of Spokane, WA thought it only appropriate for people to celebrate a day dedicated to dad much like the newly recognized Mother’s Day.
While the city of Spokane first celebrated Father’s Day in 1910, the day dedicated to celebrating dads was not nationally recognized as a holiday until 1966.
This year for Father’s Day forget the cheesy tie, fishing gear, golf clubs or beer coozie and show dad how much you truly appreciate him by giving him the gift of comfort. Give him SmartCells.
SmartCells cushioning technology is available in three different product lines (Anti-Fatigue, Fall Protection and Personal Training) to best suit the needs of your dad.
For the dad who spends extended periods of time on his feet or knees, grilling or working we suggest the SmartCells line of anti-fatigue mats, insoles and flooring.
SmartCells anti-fatigue mats are built with industrial quality and combine features such as beveled edges and stability to accompany dad perfectly on any project.
The unique SmartCells act like springs that cushion as weight is applied and then rebound when the weight shifts, which returns energy and reduces fatigue.
The SmartCells line of anti-fatigue rubber mats come with an industry-leading 8-year warranty and are available in three different surface options (smooth, basket weave and carpet top) as well as three colors (Black, gray and light brown) and three sizes (2X3, 3X5 and 24X68).
If dad is simply too mobile to enjoy the benefits of a SmartCells anti-fatigue mats, there is also a line of SmartCells anti-fatigue standard and orthotic insoles.
SmartCells Personal Training
SmartCells Personal Training products are the perfect gift for the dad who loves to stay active and wants to stay comfortable and feeling good in the process.
SmartCells Personal Training products can reduce impact stress on joints by up to 90% while at the same providing a safe, stable surface for workouts.
Available in three different colors (Black, Light Brown, and Grey) as well as three different sizes (36”X60”, 52”X60”, 52”X88”), the remarkable SmartCells Personal Training mats are low profile (1/2”) and have molded-in beveled edges. For custom applications, SATECH offers custom-sized mats as well as a wall-to-wall flooring option that is perfect for in-home gyms, and aerobics flooring.
To unload impact stress on-the-go, SmartCells Personal Training Insoles easily slip into most shoes and come in two styles: a Standard flat style, for use with or without orthotics, as well as an Active Orthotic style that offers arch and heel support, personalized for size and designed for impact-related activities.
SmartCells Fall Protection
SmartCells fall protection mats and flooring is the perfect gift for the dad who wishes to age-in-place and maintain safe independence.
The dual-stiffness structure of SmartCells fall protection products provides users with a stable standing surface that will not cause a balance impaired person to lose their balance, while at the same time providing 5-7 times more cushioning than a foam mat of the same height. SmartCells cannot absorb liquid, so infection control issues can be more effectively dealt with, too.
SmartCells Fall Protection products are available to be used as an underlayment or in a variety of colors (Black, Light Brown, and Grey) and additional configurations ranging from build-your-own mats and custom flooring to pre-sized mats (2×3, 3×5 and 24×68).
SmartCells fall protection products will be there for your loved one when you can’t be.
