Many people with physical disabilities still have the ability to drive a motor vehicle if hand controls are fitted. This independence adds greatly to self-esteem and a sense of control over one’s own life. Vehicular independence also allows the disabled person to take a more active role in family and community life.

PME Electronic Radial Hand Controls

PME Electronic Radial Hand Controls provide absolute minimal effort acceleration with smooth, positive operation. The Electronic Radial Hand Control Accelerator System is operated with a push for the brake and a smooth radial action (downward push) for acceleration. The electronic system however, features absolute minimal effort acceleration thanks to its electronic interface. This can be ideal for those who find accelerating with a mechanical system fatiguing or for those who simply want a lower-effort, smoother acceleratory response.

Clever design translates into effortless driving

The system operates via a dedicated CPU that directly interfaces with the vehicle's existing drive-by-wire accelerator system. For the user, this translates into very smooth, progressive acceleration and non-tiring operation. For these reasons, the Electronic Radial Hand Controls can assist particularly when driving for an extended duration. The system also features an automatic accelerator cut-out safety feature for instances where the brake and accelerator are applied together. Depending on differing driving techniques, this feature is optional.

Thanks to the compact size of the Electronic Radial Accelerator, this unobtrusive system allows for easy entry and exit from the vehicle. It can also be used in vehicles where space limitations make it impossible fit mechanical radial hand controls. These hand controls have been designed to fit and operate in any vehicle.
