When it comes to the types of automotive hand controls, the Push / Twist mechanical type is similar to operating a motorcycle. The design lowers fatigue and cramping or longer more comfortable drives.
How They Work
The push/twist system works using a horizontally installed handle for easy grip. This handle can be installed on either the right or left of the steering wheel. To accelerate, the operator simply twists the handle like a throttle on a motorcycle, and to brake the user simply pushes the handle forward toward the dashboard away from the driver.
There is a secondary lever on the handle to enhance throttling that allows for a more comfortable driving experience on longer trips.
Benefits in Design
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the push / twist type of hand control provides these additional benefits:
- Reduced finger and thumb strain
- Limited modification to vehicle
- Reduced fatigue and cramping
- Increased brake pedal feel and throttle response
- Easier braking
