I’ve just finished a page on the variety of types of driving controls available for those who have physical limitations that make driving difficult, or impossible, in conventionally equipped vehicles.
Products covered include:
- Hand controls – Allow people without the use of their legs to drive
- Spinner knobs – Used in conjunction with hand controls for one handed steering
- Left foot gas pedals – Allows people who do not have the use of their right feet to drive
- Pedal extenders – Allow anyone who has difficulty reaching the gas & brake pedals to drive
- Pedal guards – prevent accidental contact with the pedals by drivers using hand controls
- Turn signal extensions – Allow people who can’t reach the signal switch options for positioning
- Parking brake extensions – Make reaching and using parking brakes easier
- Gear shift extenders – Make reaching and using gear shifts easier
After a bit of a hiatus from adding new content to the Mobility Basics website I’ve added a new section about turning seats for vehicles
Turning seats aid a user accessing a vehicle by turning out of the vehicle and in some cases lowering down to make accessing higher vehicles easier.
The turning seat section of the mobility Basics website is part of a larger project I’m working on that will, in the end, provide a lot of information about vehicle products and adaptations.
