Q'STRAINT/Sure-Lok named Dan Allison, an occupational therapist (OTR/L) and driving specialist at the Shepherd Center, which is ranked among the top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the nation, won the company's inaugural Q'MANITARIAN Award.

Allison, also a certified driving rehab specialist (CDRS), ably fits the profile of a Q'MANITARIAN.

The prestigious Q'MANITARIAN Award recognizes Allison's success in the personal mobility industry and his ability to provide highly individualized training for mobility device passengers seeking to drive or ride in a vehicle for the first time.

As the winner of the Q'MANITARIAN award, Allison will be presented with two commemorative plaques.
