Mobility Freedom offers a complete selection of driving controls from simple spinner knob and hand control installations to high tech electonic mobility controls. Let us help you find the best driving controls to help you gain your ability.
All driving controls require driver training or existing proof of certification. Electronic controls require custom fitting and installation appointments. Please call so we can help answer your questions about our driving control options and what will best fit you.
Our hand controls are custom fit and tested by the manufacturer. Hand controls allow the driver to operate the brake, or the brake and gas by a handle on the left side of the steering. The main bracket is attached to the steering pillar under the drivers dashboard, exact application may vary for your vehicle.
Left foot gas pedals are useful for those in need of the gas pedal being on the left side of the brake pedal. Amputees or those with limited ability with their right leg find this a useful alternative to hand controls. Please speak with one of our mobility consultants to see if this product will work for you.
