ABC 6 News, KAAL-TV, headquartered in Rochester, Minn, and Austin, Minn, recently released a news story detailing the release of a new generation of products designed to provide assistance to a wide range of customers including stroke survivors and those with disabilities, from the Red Wing, Minn-based company Even Par Enterprises. 

Since its inception by war veteran Mike Duncan, Even Par Enterprises president/CEO, the news story notes that the Lend-a-Hand device has provided assistance to a wide range of individuals, from injured veterans to individuals with physical challenges. “It allows them to go home and do anywhere from 15 to 25 different functions with one little product,” Duncan explains. The product’s inspiration reportedly stems from a young woman’s request to Duncan, asking him to help her play golf again with her husband, following a stroke that left her paralyzed one side. 

Customer and Iraq veteran Dan Stewart reports in the news story that he has been using an earlier version of the Lend-A-Hand, “The problem I had with it [was the handle when] shoveling and raking. When I pull back my left arm the handle would just slide back and forth in the sleeve,” Stewart says. 

To address this problem, ABC 6 News announces that Duncan will be rolling out a new generation of Lend-A-Hands designed to enable users to slide an item into the sleeve, pull the straps over the top and lock the item in. “Now with this I’ll be able to slide the same handle in there and I’ll be able to cinch it down,” Stewart says.
