Why use portable hand controls for driving?

There are a lot of factors to take into consideration when equipping your car with vehicle hand controls when you are disabled, and need to convert the car to be able to drive safely. For some people it is about the price, others reliability, is it law full, others ease of use and for others it is just to convert and become mobile.

If your grip, arm strength, or coordination are compromised by your disability, the Mobidrive will probably not please you, and may make driving, which is the most dangerous activity common to our society, more dangerous than ever. Use good judgment in assessing your abilities.

The Mobidrive portable hand controls is a portable hand control for paraplegic or amputee drivers with a need for a hand control that can be conveniently carried in a carry bag, briefcase or airline carry-on luggage. It easily installs in an automatic transmission vehicle in a few minutes. The Mobidrive portable hand controls is designed to be small and light when the “legs” are folded for transport, yet strong and easy to use when installed.

These hand controls are designed for use in vehicles with automatic transmissions by individuals with normal upper body strength and coordination.
