The driver steers the car with his right hand with a horizontal steering wheel. The wheel is fitted with a holder for a cradle in which his forearm sits and a stick to fasten his hand in place. Anders inserts the stick in the universal holder on the wrist bandage (see associated tip) from the pinky side in order to have a good grip on the wheel. He uses a mouth stick to put his hand in place.
Originally Autoadapt mounted two cradles on the miniature steering wheel, one for the forearm and one for the hand. Sometimes when he turned the wheel too much his hand slipped out of the attachment. To solve the problem the cradle for his hand was replaced with a stick that the user places in the universal holder. Now his hand sits securely on the wheel.
