Location: Port Charlotte, FL
Port Charlotte, FL, April 29, 2016, Clyde Schimke, Owner and Inventor of Schimke Design, has been recognized by Elite American Business Owners, for dedication, achievement and leadership in conceptual invention.
Mr. Schimke saw a need for a new type of puff tube while working as a hospital maintenance engineer for 21 years.

The benefits of this invention results in taking up less space in a hospital bed. As Mr. Schmike explains, “The puff tube takes less air pressure to blow on than a blow tube, this control will operate the bed, it raises and lowers the head and foot of bed. This is positioned to the side of the bed so quadriplegics can make themselves more comfortable without having to call for help when they get uncomfortable.” Continue reading
