DARIOS - the digital accelerator ring and the main hand brake
Our solution for hand controls for paraplegic drivers, is DARIOS - the Digital Accelerator Ring and the Main Hand Brake, which can be installed on most cars with automatic transmissions.
Smoothly push the ring towards the steering wheel to accelerate.
Move the main hand brake downward to brake. It may be installed left or right from the steering column.
In some situations one hand is enough to steer and accelerate, keeping the other hand free to control the radio or the ventilator, while never beeing far from the hand brake.

These hand controls allow a person who lost the use of both legs, to drive with both hands on the steering wheel.
