The Ingenious Invention That Keeps on Giving

Coach Glen Henry, The Box Seat's® inventor, spent over 38 years teaching and coaching at University of Northern Iowa. Coach Henry was always an avid sports fan, but as a frequent tailgater he kept running into the same problem: There was never anyplace to sit! Looking for the perfect solution to his problems, Coach Henry began to develop The Box Seat®.

Glen HenryThe idea was sidelined in 2004 when Henry and his wife Karen were involved in a serious motorcycle accident. While Karen eventually recovered from her injuries, Glen sustained spinal cord injuries that left him a quadriplegic.

Despite the challenges, Coach Henry's resolve remained strong. After life readjusted, he and his daughter Lisa Henry Holmes went back to work on the development and launch of The Box Seat®. Having spent his life in the world of sports, Coach Henry understands fan comfort. Now he's dedicated The Box Seat's® net proceeds to a team that understands the challenges he faces everyday: The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, an organization that leads the way in spinal cord injury research.
