Brake and Accelerator Modification

Disability in your legs or feet may make it difficult or even impossible for you to operate the brake and accelerator pedals.  That doesn't mean that your driving days are over.  There are driving assist devices that allow a person with disability to operate the brake and accelerator and continue driving.

If you have had an amputation, neurological damage, muscle weakness, or skeletal/joint issues, hand controls or a left foot accelerator could be the solution fo you.

Below are brief descriptions of several mobility equipment options:

Hand Controls

Hand controls enable a driver who has difficulty using his legs and/or feet to drive.  The driver can operate the brake and accelerator pedals with either his left or right hand.  There are several hand control options available.  Most are mechanical and operate via either a push/pull, push/right-angle, push/rock, or push/twist action.  We will fit for the best hand controls for your vehicle and ability.

Left Foot Accelerator Pedals

The left foot accelerator enables a driver who can only use his left foot to operate the accelerator and brake by adding a gas pedal to the left side of the brake pedal.  The device includes an accelerator guard that prevents accidental depressing of the OEM gas pedal by a prosthetic right leg.  The left foot accelerator is easily installed and removed to allow both right and left foot drivers to operate the vehicle.
