‘Carfit’ teaches safety


In an effort to promote safe driving and mobility for older drivers, Luther is partnering with Volunteers of America and serves as a host for the CarFit program.

Proper safety, comfort and fit in vehicles is the emphasis, and employees from five Luther stores carfit-car1-webattended CarFit training, explains Matt Oquist, Luther’s community engagement coordinator.  Seat positioning and carfit-sign-14-webmirror adjustments are part of the process.

Brookdale Buick GMC opened its doors for CarFit trained technicians and health professionals for free fitment services. Dr. Erica Stern, associate professor of Allied-Occupational Therapy at the University of Minnesota, brought students to discuss a variety of simple adaptive devices with drivers, including seat belt extenders, seat belt reachers, easy key turners, and swivel seat cushions.
