Two metal rods are fitted on the car’s accelerator and brake pedals. The rods can move in all directions. The rods reach up to the car seat. They are held together with a transverse handle. The rod to the brake is attached to the handle. To brake, press down on the handle. The rod to the accelerator pedal runs free through a hole in the handle. To accelerate, use the thumb to press on the button that sits on the rod.
The hand control unit is used together with the cruise control, which sits on the wheel.
The control unit can be turned to the side to keep them out of the way when moving in and out of the car.
It takes about 10 minutes to install the hand control unit. The control unit fits almost all cars with automatic transmission.

Users comments
The user brings the control unit with him when he travels. He also uses it when his car is in the shop and he has to use another car.
The hand controls require full hand function.
One disadvantage is that the car cannot be driven with the foot pedal when the controls are installed.
