Description
Hand controls consisting of two parts, one to accelerate and one to brake.
The accelerator lever consists of a bracket that is screwed on to the accelerator pedal and a tube that is inserted into the bracket. The tube is bent so that it is not in the way of the user’s legs, and so that it will provide the right leverage to accelerate without force when the user pulls the tube toward him.
The brake lever is a stick made of titanium that is fitted with a quick coupler on the brake pedal. The quick coupler has a joint that allows the brake lever to fold. To brake, the user presses down on the lever.

The user can fold the brake lever so that he can reach the accelerator lever and the steering wheel at the same time, which allows him to control acceleration, braking and steering with one hand. He can also rest his hand on the brake.
