Hand Controls for Accessible Vehicles
You can go places with an accessible vehicle - and with hand controls you can get there yourself. Hand controls for accessible vehicles allow even drivers with limited foot mobility to operate the foot pedals. Instead of the usual gas and brake pedals, hand controls, which are usually mounted below the steering wheel, allow the driver to control the van by hand.
At Wheelchair Vans of Maryland, we even install hand controls for accessible vehicles right in our facility, which allows you to get on the road quicker. Not sure what type of hand controls is ideal for your accessible vehicle? Get the details below and contact us with questions.
Hand Control Types
- Push/rock style - When the driver pushes the handle forward the vehicle will brake and when the lever is rocked back it will accelerate. Persons with no finger dexterity can operate this model.
- Push/right angle style - Allows the driver to push the handle upward towards the instrument panel to brake and downward at a right angle to accelerate. This method is operable for persons with limited finger dexterity.
- Push/pull style - By pushing the lever forward on the handle the vehicle's brakes will engage and when it is pulled backwards the vehicle will accelerate. A three-post hand interface can be installed to allow the user to maintain contact with the handle giving the driver greater control. This operation model is persons with limited finger dexterity friendly.
- Push/rotate style - The driver pushing the handle forward causes the vehicle to brake and when the lever is twisted the vehicle will accelerate. Full or limited finger function is required for this type of control.
