AUTOMOTIVE and TRANSPORTATION

The "Tranqwheel" - Stress Ball Steering Wheel Covers - Mark Romero - This is the only steering wheel cover on the market that allows the driver a multi-beneficial driving experience that hasn't existed before. It features six soft and easily accessible stress balls at various points on the steering wheel cover, giving the driver the ability to alleviate stress, enhance control and concentration, and minimize hand slippage all while keeping their hands on the wheel. By squeezing the stress balls on the Tranqwheel, the driver reduces accumulated tension brought on by heavy traffic and other difficult driving conditions. The stress balls also provide a position for hands to rest while driving and create a barrier to prevent hand misplacement. Tranqwheel allows the driver an advantage over other drivers with its stress relieving capabilities and safety functions. It provides the driver with a much firmer and more comfortable grip and keeps the driver in full control of the wheel.

The "Wheel 19" - By Lupe Sanchez Sr. and Rich Hanson -

If you’ve ever experienced a blowout in a passenger vehicle you know well that it can be an extremely hazardous events. A sudden tire deflation for a tractor trailer rig however, due to a hazard or road debris, is an order of magnitude more dangerous due to the increased mass, momentum and structure of the vehicle.

"Wheel 19" is designed to negate the hazardous factors involved in such an event.

The "Wheel 19" is an aftermarket safety wheel that attaches to the front wheels of a tractor-trailer cab and acts like an instant spare tire. In the event of a catastrophic failure to a front tire, the driver retains far more control of the vehicle’s critical steer wheels than they might not otherwise have.
