Quantum Grip In the News
by: Dennis McCann – WisGolfer.com
Patrick Pinkart was just 25 when the accident took place that was to change his life forever. And, as it turned out, to change the lives of disabled golfers in ways few could have imagined.
“I dove from a pier at a friend’s cottage at Lake Winneconne,” he said of that day in 1986. “It was about 4 feet (deep). I wasn’t unaware of the depth. I just made a bad dive.
“It was an instant transition to a different life.”
Pinkart, a native of Oconto in northeastern Wisconsin, suffered a broken neck and spinal cord. Three vertebras were fractured, and doctors gave him almost no chance of walking or using his hands again.

Golfers with limited hand strength will be able to hold a golf club more securely with the new Quantum Grip, developed by occupational therapist Patrick Pinkart following his own spinal cord injury that affected him personally.
The special golf grip is designed with a recessed spiral groove that houses hook Velcro such that the hooks are discreetly flush with the surface. The companion golf glove contains the mating loop material throughout the palm.

Boca Raton, FL (June 22, 2011) — Multi-Media Productions (USA), Inc. is pleased to announce that Quantum Grip, an innovative solution for golfers suffering from arthritis, hand weakness or other disabilities that cause weakened grip, or those golfers looking for a training aid to master grip fundamentals, improve control and distance, will be airing on 21st Century Business on Fox Business Network (as paid programming)
Golf… a distant, yet fond memory… Do you have an ailment that has deteriorated your grip and discouraged you from playing the game you once loved? Well, now, there is a solution that will get you back in the game, while also helping to improve the comfort, control and power in your swing. Quantum Grip was developed out of one man’s desire to simply play golf… again.
At 25 years of age, inventor and owner of Quantum Grip, Patrick Pinkart sustained a broken neck and spinal cord injury when he made a “bad dive” from a pier into a shallow lake. Three vertebras in his neck were fractured, including a “burst fracture” of the 6th cervical vertebra. His doctors gave him a 5 % chance to ever walk again or use his hands.
Following years of intensive therapy, Patrick regained the ability to walk, but leg strength, balance and agility challenges remained. He was also left with limited hand strength and hand function. With the desire to play golf again, Patrick attempted, but was left frustrated as his grip strength was not sufficient enough to hold the club firmly.
An exhaustive search of the golf market for assistive devices to help enhance his grip turned up nothing of any real, practical help – pushing his motivation to develop a revolutionary product that would help the injured and disabled enjoy the game of golf…again.
Quantum Grip provides a solution to golfers that would like to enhance their grip, or get back in the game after an injury, while improving comfort, control and power by eliminating slippage and magnifying gripping power. Clutching the handle of a golf club for any length of time can be both physically challenging and exhausting for golfers with aliments contributing to decreased grip strength; such as arthritis, stroke, spinal cord injuries or general hand weakness.
Quantum Grip’s innovative system is both a training aid for able-bodied golfers and gripping aid for golfers with little to no grip strength. Quantum Grip enhances any golfer’s overall experience of the game by teaching all skill levels proper hand positioning and a softer grip.
