The electronic ring accelerator enables disabled people, especially paraplegics, to drive a car safely and comfortably. The system can be fitted in all cars that have an airbag, and is simply attached to the steering wheel.
The driver accelerates by pressing the ring accelerator gently with his thumb or the ball of his hand. That enables him to keep both hands on the wheel. He can accelerate whatever position the steering wheel is in.
The brake, which is mounted below the steering wheel on the left or right, is actuated by pressing or pushing. It is fitted with a finely notched catch.
People without walking disabilities can disable the entire system and drive using the pedals.
One device offers para and tetraplegics very reliable assistance as they drive. The accelerator and brake pedals are connected to a double lever which is mounted on the left or right underneath the steering column. The lever is pushed down to accelerate.
If the driver wishes to accelerate, he pulls the lever down ("Knickgas") or pulls it towards him. The brake is operated by pushing. On request, we can also incorporate an electrics into the handle for functions such as lights and indicators. The steering wheel can also be fitted with a rotary knob or a tetra fork.
The multifunction lever is fitted horizontally to the left or right of the steering wheel. It can be fitted into all cars and offers a simple and useful solution for many disabled drivers.
