A range of acceleration devices which include two steering wheel rings and a thumb operated accelerator. The steering wheel rings are designed to both steer and accelerate the vehicle. The thumb operated accelerator provides vehicle acceleration via thumb control. Suitable for vehicles with automatic transmission and power steering. Can be customised to suit individual needs and most vehicle makes and models.
The supplier recommends that the hand controls be installed at their premises to ensure correct installation.
Extra product information
The chrome plated steering wheel rings require either a push down or lift action to accelerate the vehicle. The ring rotates when turning. The thumb operated control requires pressure and some level of precision to move a small lever to accelerate the vehicle. All devices have a bracket and electronic attachment to the steering wheel.
All models require a separate brake control. Devices do not interfere with air bag function. Can be customised to suit most makes and models of vehicles. Can be switched off to drive conventionally.
