Electronic mobility controls offer unique ways to control gas and brake pedals, steering, wipers, turn signals, ignition, and more. There are two main categories of electronic mobility driving controls—primary controls which control gas, brakes, and steering and secondary controls for all other functions such as lights, turn signals, wipers, A/C and cruise control. So how does it work? We work with three manufacturers that offer customizable approaches to design and installation to help make sure the controls satisfy the needs of the user.
EMC offers primary driving controls in three configurations (Gas/Brake & Steering, Gas/Brake Only, Steering Only) along with secondary controls plus orthotic control options. The AEVIT® Orthotic Devices Tri-Pin type orthotics are designed for drivers with little to no hand function. While the Joystick orthotics are designed for those with hand function.

PARAVAN is unique in that in addition to offering mobility aids for the disabled, their steer-by-wire and brake-by-wire solutions are adaptable for agricultural engineering, construction machinery, municipal and special vehicles. Their standout options include touch systems and voice controls. Take a look here.
Joysteer’s, aka Bozzio, joystick system can be installed in almost every vehicle. To see a list of vehicle brands in which a joysteer® system has been installed, click here.
The best part of these options? Driving control modifications are offered in such a way that they can be changed out or modified over the life of the vehicle or if the needs of the user change.
