For disabled drivers, the ability to get back behind the wheel is an important part of restoring the sense of freedom. Finding the right hand controls for cars or handicap vans can help you get back on the road safely. With a little time spent shopping you can end up with the ability to go where you want to, when you want to.

Menox Hand Controls

The Menox Hand Control is specifically designed to give physically limited drivers the benefit of control and ease when driving a vehicle. Driving becomes an easy and enjoyable experience with Menox. The hand control is designed to be used by the right hand as in traditional shifting. The Hand Control operates in one straight and ergonomic range of motion so that accelerating and braking are distinctive and easy to use in the flow of traffic. Pushing forward engages the brake and easing back accelerates. Thanks to Menox's advanced design, each control is ergonomic, conforming to a person's natural hand-wrist arm motion. The function buttons are situated in a logical safe place and engineering has simplified the range of the Menox Hand Control; pushing forward to brake, pulling back to accelerate.

MPS Hand Controls

The MPS-1A is often recommended by rehabilitation driving specialists because it uses a natural method for brake and accelerator movement. It is almost a "must" for a person with severe hand and wrist weakness. The MPS Monarch-1A is a smooth operator, offering miles and miles of relaxed driving. The brake is applied by pushing the operating handle toward the brake pedal. Moving the handle toward the driver seat activates the accelerator. The brake and accelerator may be operated separately or simultaneously. Installation of the MSP-1A requires a minimum modification to the vehicle. It may be used for either right or left hand operation. It does require an automatic transmission, power steering and power brakes.

906GVQR Quick Release Electronic Accelerator Ring

The new Guido simplex Detachable Quick-Release Accelerator Ring hand control mounts easily over any steering wheel, and with a push of a button, detaches just as easily. Gently push the ring towards the steering wheel to accelerate. The pressure remains constant at any speed. The 906 Accelerator Ring allows you to keep your hands on the wheel in a comfortable and natural position requiring very little effort and will not interfere with airbag deployment. An incredibly convenient switch provides power to either the accelerator ring or the gas pedal, allowing able-bodied drivers to drive the vehicle. All installations are performed with minimal intrusion to the vehicle's operating systems.

907FV Mechanical Brake

This new Long-Arm 907FV brake lever incorporates a new revolutionary ergonomic system of mechanical braking. Made entirely of aluminum and coated with embossed rubber the 907FV brake lever perfectly integrates with the mobility vehicles interior without altering the look of the car. The forward braking functionality movement was ideally designed not to encumber and/or touch the legs of the driver. The rods to the brake pedal follow the contour of the console with no intrusion on the ingress or egress from the vehicle. This innovative design also features a "slide button" that will automatically lock the brake so hands are free to operate the gear lever. The additional two buttons on top of the lever are for the horn and for the adjustable idle parking navigation system.
