Hand Controls to Gas and Brake
Hand Controls Gas & Brake Aids
Limited mobility doesn't have to keep you from the driver's seat. Mobility products like hand controls that let you gas and brake can put you there. In place of the usual gas and brake pedals, hand controls allow you to control speed with a lever which is typically mounted below the steering wheel.
As with all mobility products, hand controls to gas and break should only be purchased from the best. At Wheelchair Vans of Virginia, we have experience installing hand control systems and working with drivers so they leave feeling safe and secure.

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.
