ST. LOUIS — Further OPTIONS, Inc. (www.further-options.com)
, a developer of innovative vehicle entry systems for wheelchair-bound individuals, today announced that it will be displaying its first commercial product, the U.S. Patent-pending DMS-3 Pickup Truck Wheelchair Entry System, at the 2006 SEMA Show. The announcement was proudly made by the company's Co-Founders, David Gotter and Scott Darnell.
World renowned as the "greatest automotive show in the world, where everything new makes its debut," the 2006 SEMA Show runs from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 in Las Vegas, and is expected to attract approximately 140,000 automotive industry professionals, including representatives from major news organizations around the world. Further OPTIONS' display will be in Booth Number 34833, in the show's Trucks, SUVs and Off-Road section.
Gotter and Darnell established Further OPTIONS in 2003 to develop innovative vehicle entry systems, and other breakthrough products, for wheelchair-bound individuals. Gotter also owns and operates two successful machine shops, D & R Machine and Alton Machine Works, and stemming from his experiences growing up with a younger sister who was confined to a chair, he brings a heartfelt desire to help people in wheelchairs enjoy all that life has to offer. Darnell suffered a life-altering spinal cord injury in 1991, and as a C-5/6 quadriplegic, has pursued his dream of helping create important new mobility options for others in wheelchairs. Having met at their local place of worship, over the past three years, with a great deal of support from many friends and family-members, the two men have persevered in bringing their first Patent-pending product to market.
