Push/Rock Driving Hand Controls

When it comes to the types of automotive handicap hand controls, the Push/Rock type is probably the most popular. The unique design eliminates contact with an occupant’s knees or legs at higher rate of travel, allows for more applicable installations by fitting into tighter spaces, and reduces driver’s fatigue.

How They Work

The system works using a vertically installed handle for easy grip, and can be installed on either the right or left of the steering wheel. The operator pulls the handle back toward themselves for acceleration and away toward the dash for braking. However, the movement is more of a rocking motion than a pull and push.

This rocking motion is what makes this type of easier to operate by creating a smaller range of motion. This is the aspect that decreases driver fatigue, while increasing throttle response and range of braking.


Push/Twist Driving Hand Control

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

Right-Angle Hand Controls

The system works using a horizontally installed handle for easy grip, and can be installed on either the right or left of the steering wheel. The operator pulls the down in a right angle movement toward his or her legs for acceleration and pushes away toward the dash for braking.

However, what is unique in this design is that the unit pivots solely at the handle when throttling, keeping the main body stationary eliminating driver contact and reducing fatigue with its short travel.

In comparison to the Push / Rock type control, to apply the gas, one would rock the handle down toward his/her lap at a right angle.


Push-Pull Driving Hand Controls

The push/pull 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 pulls the handle toward the steering wheel and pushes the handle away toward the dash for braking.

Benefits In Design

In addition to the obvious benefits, the push / pull type of hand control provides the additional benefits:

  • Reduced finger and thumb strain
  • Reduced fatigue and cramping
  • Increased brake pedal feel and throttle response
  • Easier braking
