These are very popular adaptations because they enable the driver to have full control of the steering wheel, using only one hand.They are most commonly fitted at the same time as other hand controls. When using hand controls your right hand will almost always be on the handgrip, either accelerating or braking. The steering ball gives you full and safe control of the steering wheel, using only one hand.
Designed for drivers who are unable to operate the foot pedals, this adaptation allows a driver to operate the brake and accelerator by hand using a push/pull single lever.
A true driving experience
Using high calibre tubing, mirror polished precision components and axial roller bearings, our hand controls offer the driver unrivalled smooth and responsive operation with almost no resistance. The result is an extremely light hand control which replicates the true feeling of the pedals. We have been told that our mechanical hand control can feel lighter and more responsive than the much more expensive electronic systems.
Leg Impact Protection System
Our pioneered patented guard was first introduced in 2000, now restyled in polyurethane, it is designed to protect the driver whilst maintaining aesthetics.
Integral indicator switch
Hand controls are available with an integral indicator switch in the handle. When driving with hand controls, your right hand will be operating the brake/accelerator lever. Your left hand will be required for steering, therefore you may find it difficult to operate the indicators with the vehicle’s standard indicator stalk.
Please note this is usually a requirement for drivers taking their test with hand controls.
Designed to aid one handed steering, this adaptation also assists drivers with limited arm or shoulder strength and reduces the force required to steer. Steering aids can be used independently or in conjunction with hand controls or a left foot accelerator.
Ball (Fixed or Quick Release)
The most commonly used steering aid, the steering ball is grasped from the front using a partially clenched hand. Available in fixed or quick release versions.
Peg (Quick Release)
The steering peg is grasped from the side using a partially clenched hand. Available as quick release only.
Tetra Grip (Specialist)
The tetra grip is controlled by placing the wrist between two adjustable supports and fingers around the peg. Available as quick release only.
ELECTRIC TRIGGER HAND CONTROLS
Designed for drivers with limited upper body movement, particularly those who only have use of one hand. These units allow secondary functions such as indicators, headlights, horn and windscreen wipers to be operated by a wireless keypad control incorporated into a steering aid mounted on the steering wheel.
Wireless keypads are available in either steering ball or lollypop grip steering aids. The steering ball grip allows the driver to grasp the steering aid and operate the buttons with either the thumb or forefinger. The lollipop grip allows the driver to grip the steering aid whilst using their thumb to operate the keypad..
