What is FeatherLite®?
Featherlite® is the newest offering of hand controls and left foot accelerators for the Disabled Driving Community from Howell Ventures Ltd. The Featherlite® hand control system combines all the benefits of Sure Grip’s short stroke hand control design of traditional hand controls, such as Right/Angle and Push/Pull, along with our traditional
Push/Rock into one of today’s most sophisticated and user friendly driving systems. Featherlite® creates and electrical interface with your vehicles acceleration system. This interface removes all resistance created by hard mounted accelerator rods and gas pedal resistance. The result is dramatically more leg and lap room for the driver, combined with the absolute easiest acceleration possible. Perhaps the most significant feature of Featherlite® Driving Systems are the built-in safety defaults. Being electronic, Featherlite® allows for the driver/owner to determine which mode the vehicle will be operated in, OEM or Driving Control. While the vehicle is in one mode, the other is rendered inoperable. A patterned push of a button allows for the switching between driving modes and assists in preventing unwanted usage of your Adaptive Driving Device. Both Featherlite® Hand Controls and Left foot Accelerators have been rigorously tested to meet Federal Safety Standards.

Attached is a few pictures of a stair lift install Ken and I performed today for a client. This one is actually a rental stair lift for a hospice client. The client couldn’t be happier with the install, and now she has access to her upstairs bedroom without having to climb the stairs.
Attached are a few pictures from a modular ramp install we performed. It’s a 29’ length straight off the client’s porch down to his driveway. He was having difficulty in getting up and down the stairs, and even a greater difficulty finding someone to help him with a solution. That all changed we he found the Mobility Supercenter. With a quick assessment and ramp suggestion, he can now access his new home with ease. Our client was very pleased and stated that it was a top-quality install! And he also may be contacting us back for a stair lift for inside as well.
Attached are a few pictures from a pool lift install Ken and I completed today. It is installed at a local neighborhood’s community pool and it will allow several of their residents who are wheelchair bound to access it. There were several members of the HOA present for the install, and they were very impressed and pleased with the finished product!
Pictures from a recent vehicle lift swap we performed.
A local dealership had a long-time client in need of a minivan when their existing 2000 Oldsmobile van finally gave up the ghost. It had a Freedom Tracker hybrid lift in it, and the clients were basically stuck at home without it. The dealership ended up selling them this pre-owned 2013 Honda Odyssey, and we swapped the lift out of the disabled van and into this one for them. Now their clients are back on the road and are able to go out of town on a preplanned vacation – just in time!

“I just wanted to call and tell you that your service man Kenny came out and did an excellent job, was very nice and polite. The lady (Amanda) was very quick with scheduling the repair and I really appreciate it because I can’t go without my lift chair. I just wanted to say thank you again and we are very happy.”
