People with severe arthritis, people with Muscular Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy and others with disAbilities can drive again with the help of a mobility equipment expert. To find the specific product solution for your driving challenges, consult with a Physical or Occupational Therapist, Driver Rehabilitation Specialist and a Mobility dealer. Here are just a few adaptive mobility devices that they may recommend to keep you on the road.
If your hands are too weak to turn the steering wheel, there’s a solution:
- Joystick Driving Systems allow one-hand operation of brake, accelerator and steering and only require ounces of pressure to use.
If you can’t reach controls on your dashboard or steering wheel, there’s a solution:
- Remote Wiper, Horn, Dimmer Switch, Signals and Headlight Controls. This control relocates these functions to a more reachable location. The driver uses a switch with the hand, elbow, head or knee.
If you have leg spasms, there’s a solution:
- Pedal Block (for gas and brake) guards against inadvertent engagement of gas or the brakes due to a spasm.
