Q'STRAINT/Sure-Lok names inaugural Q'MANITARIAN award

Posted on November 6, 2019

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. He works with mobility passengers to train them on how to safely and properly operate or ride in a vehicle with their device, allowing them the same level of safety and accessibility as those around them.

For over 30 years, Q'STRAINT has observed efforts by transportation industry professionals and created this award to honor and celebrate their efforts within their field. 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.
