SURE GRIP hand control’s unique “push rock” acclaimed style of driving—push forward for brake, rock back for acceleration—has been promoted by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) as the fourth recognized style of driving for the disable under nationally recognized terminologies. This endorsement brought a lot of industry credibility to Howell’s design.
Simply, the SURE GRIP hand control was constructed to serve people with perhaps the highest level of disability. The controls operate with very little hand strength and, unlike any other hand control on today’s market, the unique vertical handle allows the operator virtual two handed contact with the steering wheel—something no other product offers. SURE GRIP, while recognized early on as the product most appropriate for the most difficult cases, soon gained acceptance as the easiest to use control on the market for all users.
