Hand controls are specialised driving aids that empower individuals with mobility challenges to operate a vehicle safely and comfortably. Whether you require adaptations due to physical disabilities or are simply looking for a more convenient driving experience, our hand controls are the solution you need.
There are various types of hand controls available to suit your needs. We manufacture our own hand controls that are bespoke to each vehicle they are fitted to and can be designed to fit each customer’s individual needs. We can also fit other manufacturers’ controls depending on your preference.
Push/pull hand controls can only be fitted to automatic vehicles and the pedals can still be used as standard if required. They consist of a lever on the right or left hand side of the steering wheel which is pulled towards you to accelerate and push away to brake. Our push pull hand controls are bespoke to each vehicle and can be designed to suit your individual needs.
Gas rings are a ring that fits in front or behind the steering wheel which can be used to accelerate instead of the original pedal so you can keep both hands on the steering wheel while accelerating. You can use this with or without a brake lever. It can be installed in automatic vehicles.
The trigger throttle controls the accelerator with a trigger mounted on the brake lever which can be operated using your finger with just a few grams of force giving a light and responsive feel when driving the vehicle. When the vehicle is started you push the button and push on the brake lever, this activates the trigger throttle. It can be installed in automatic vehicles.
There are different types of handheld accelerators available. The wireless “FLY” accelerator allows gradual and precise acceleration. It allows you to keep both hands on the steering wheel and has an adjustable strap which allows you to find the most suited hand position ensuring total comfort when driving. There are also thumb touch accelerators available which can be used with your left or right thumb and allows freedom to move your hand whilst driving.
Remote control devices can be fitted to the steering wheel with various grips to enable you to operate the secondary controls whilst steering such as indicators, lights, horn and front and rear washer/wipers. We can also fit mini keypads directly onto the push pull hand controls for easy access to these functions. We fit a variety of manufacturers’ products to ensure you get the right controls for you.
