The usage of hand controls has allowed drivers without complete control of their lower extremities the ability to drive a vehicle. This new independence affected thousands of wheelchair users and have been steadily been gaining popularity with disabled drivers. Hand controls are a lever system that is operated by the steering wheel to control the use of the gas and brake pedals of a vehicle. While the main usage of hand controls is to accelerate and stop the vehicle, hand controls are also available that operate blinkers, windshield wipers, and even gear shifts.
AMS Vans carries a complete line of hand controls that won’t affect regular driving and requires no adjustments between drivers. AMS Vans can install hand controls as your wheelchair van is being converted or after the fact.
