Hand Controls Offer Immense Freedom through Technological Innovation

Ford Wheelchair Driver Van VMi New England

The world of mobility equipment has grown tremendously in the last few years. We’ve seen the rise of things like lowering suspensions, new innovations in wheelchair ramps and quite a bit more. However, few pieces of mobility equipment have affected users’ freedom in the way that hand controls have.

Hand controls offer any individual with physical disabilities the chance to get back behind the wheel of their own vehicle. Here at VMi New England, we offer a range of the most advanced hand controls in the industry, designed to accommodate a variety of different needs.

For example, a servo gas brake includes options such as an accelerator lever that mounts directly next to  the existing steering wheel, which operates both the brakes and the accelerator from an easy-to-use lever mounted beside the steering wheel.

Of course, we also offer a steering wheel input system with a 2:1 turn ratio for easier maneuvering. The company’s gas/brake input lever is also a very convenient solution. MPD also manufactures a line of hand controls that can enable better control and convenience, even with limited hand mobility. For instance, their push/twist hand control solution lets drivers control the gas and brake by using pushing and twisting motions. They also offer a push/rock hand control system that works in a similar fashion.

Here at VMi New ENgland, we’re proud to bring our customers the highest quality hand control systems from the world’s top manufacturers. No matter what your driving needs might be, we have a solution that will give you the freedom and independence you deserve.
