Hand Controls

Hand controls are devices to operate the accelerator and/or brake on a vehicle manually, using the driver’s hand rather than the driver’s foot. There are four types of hand controls recommended for use in vehicles with power brakes and steering as they do not interfere with operation of the vehicle by able-bodied drivers. They are:

  • Push/Pull Hand Control: A device to operate the accelerator and brake pedals by hand. Push/Pull operation is push forward (toward the brake pedal) to brake and pull toward the rear to accelerate.
  • Push/Twist Hand Control: A device to operate the accelerator and brake pedals by hand. The Push/ Twist operation is push of the control handle forward (toward brake pedal) to brake and twist the handle (much like a motorcycle) to accelerate.
  • Push/Rock Hand Control: A device to operate the accelerator and brake pedals by hand. The Push/Rock operation requires a push of the control handle forward (toward brake pedal) to brake and for acceleration, the rocking of an upright handle rearward toward the user.
  • Push/Right Angle Hand Control: A device to operate the accelerator and brake pedals by hand. The Push/Right Angle operation is push forward (toward brake pedal) to brake and move down toward the lap to accelerate. (also referred to as “universal” as it can be used for most disabilities)

At R&J Mobility Service, we offer hand controls by:
