All About Howard

HowardsThe History of Howard:

In 1968, a young Billy W. Howard, Sr. left his successful career at General Electric to return to his native Mississippi and create his own company, Howard Industries.  Over the next three decades and with the assistance of his wife, Linda, Howard Industries has grown to become a billion dollar company consisting of four separate divisions plus a wholly-owned subsidiary, Howard transportation.  While the Howards readily attribute their success to the hard work of their employees and their commitment to creating, supplying, and supporting superior products and services, you cannot overlook their inspiration.

The “Howard Advantage”:

Howard Medical First Again!

Did you know Howard Medical was the first to market with:

lythium phosphate battery

Lithium Phospate Battery Technology on Carts

Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries offer a powerful combination of performance, reliability, and safety. Paired with Howard Medical’s PowerMax150 power system, each 40Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate battery can deliver up to 2500 cycles, about 10 times that of most SLA batteries. They charge fast and contain no heavy metals, making them safe to manage at either end of the battery’s life.

Electronic Lift for Height Adjustment

electronic lift

The cart work surface is designed to accommodate nearly 95% of human statures. It can be raised to a height of 46.5″ or lowered to 31.75″. Howard Medical was the innovator of providing individual care givers with a height adjustment system. Now, with the touch of a button, the worksurface can be ergonomically positioned to the perfect working height, whether sitting or standing.

Steer assist tech

Steer Assist Technology

Howard Medical was the first to engineer Steer Assist Technology, a caster mechanism that when auto-activated, minimizes the force required to turn a moving cart, increasing cart control and overall maneuverability.

Tool-less Battery Replacement

tool-less battery replacement

Functional simplicity is at the core of our cart design. As a result, many of the tasks related to cart usage require only a basic introduction and minimal instruction. Changing the battery in a Howard Medical cart is one such task. We were the first to engineer a quick and easy, no-tool process that takes less than 2 minutes—another example of cutting-edge design that saves you time and money!

Power display softwarePower Display Software

Power Display provides the user with a browser-based, graphical, on-screen interface for displaying various parameters of the med cart power system. Functionality includes data display, data and event logging, event-based alarms, and graceful shutdown capability.
