Who can benefit from our electronic hand controls for cars?
Electronic hand controls for cars enable users with partial or limited use of feet or legs to drive by transferring acceleration and braking to your hand. They are commonly used as a natural progression from mechanical hand controls due to the reduced effort and strength required to accelerate. This also makes them an ideal solution for those driving regularly, especially for work or over longer distances.
How electronic hand controls work
Each electronic hand control within our range operates slightly differently, but they all offer electronic acceleration with a mechanical push brake function. Typically using a lever system, you pull the control to accelerate,, then push to brake. They include a safety feature which ensures that the accelerator automatically cuts out when braking is applied.

Our electronic hand controls brands
Over the last 45 years, Brig-Ayd Controls have developed an innovative catalogue of driving solutions including car hand controls that can be tailored to your unique requirements.
Understanding that no two people’s disabilities are the same, there is no ‘one size fits all’ in the product range. Instead, each adaptation is tailored for your own level of mobility, comfort and specific driving style.
For over 100 years, Veigel have been designing award-winning ergonomic, reliable and easy-to-use driving aids and controls for people with disabilities.
Developed in conjunction with some of the biggest car manufacturers across the world, each product goes through rigorous testing to ensure they exceed industry standards. With styled designs, finished surfaces and sleek lines to compliment any vehicle’s interior, they are products which look as good as they perform.
Are electronic hand controls customisable for different drivers?
All electronic hand controls within our range are available as different versions with secondary controls, lights and indicator switches to suit your individual needs. We also have one that is adjustable, enabling the position to be tailored as per your requirements.
Are electronic hand controls compatible with any vehicle?
We have multiple electronic hand controls available within our range, affording a solution for a greater number of cars. For specific vehicle compatibility, we always recommend contacting our team to check and confirm.
Can someone with limited hand strength use electronic hand controls?
Electronic hand controls for disabled drivers require much less physical strength compared to mechanical hand controls, making them a more suitable choice for those with reduced hand strength. However, a disability driving assessment is required to assess your capabilities and establish which control system is best suited to your needs.
How difficult is it to learn how to use electronic hand controls?
If you are already used to driving mechanical hand controls, then driving with electronic hand controls is a natural progression. But if you do require some extra support or tuition, there are specialist Disability Driving Instructors throughout the UK to assist you. They are specially trained to give lessons in your own adapted car to ensure the transition to driving independently is as smooth as possible.
