Electronic hand controls can give individuals with high-level disabilities the freedom of mobility. By transferring the gas and brake operations from foot to hand, drivers can steer, accelerate, and brake using a push and pull or a turn motion. This technology allows users to operate an automobile while also integrating secondary controls such as ignition, wipers and lights through a touchpad system. The design of the hand controls can vary. Some examples include joysticks,
buttons, and switches. There are a variety of models available that work with most budgets and needs. Additionally, most hand controls are designed so that friends and family who drive with gas and brake foot operations are still able to operate your vehicle if needed.
