ATLANTA, GA– June 17, 2016– InventHelp’s INPEX, America’s Largest Invention Trade Show, announced gold medal and cash prize winners at the closing awards ceremony for its 31st annual show, held June 7-9 at the Monroeville Convention Center, just outside of downtown Pittsburgh.

Gold medals were presented in 46 categories including wellness/fitness, hardware/tools, and automotive/transportation products. Merit awards and several special awards were also presented. Each invention is judged by an independent international jury committee, and for 2016, the Grand Prix winners are as follows:

Georgia’s Larry Carswell – INPEX 2016 Grand Prix Winner

Mudder, invented by Larry Carswell, of McDonough, Ga. – A self-contained winching system, the Mudder is able to free a stuck ATV/Side-by-Side without any assistance. The ATV rider simply pushes a button, and the battery-operated winch frees the ATV. This winch is operated by either a hand held control or a remote control, which means one can walk ahead of the ATV and it would follow them, or they can sit on the ATV and let Mudder pull the ATV with them on it.

In addition to that award, he also nabbed gold medals in the Design (Technical), Engineering, Recreation and Specialized Technology categories.

In addition to Mudder, two other cash prizes and runner-up awards were given. Rick Hassler and Michael Hassler, of Brockton, Mass., took home first runner-up ($3,000) for their invention, the Food Freshness Card, hologram technology that helps to keep food fresher longer, detoxifies food and ensures a better taste. Several Taiwanese inventors received the second runner-up prize ($2,000) for Good Arch Fir Kang Fu Rou Breathable Pads.
