Automatic "Duck" Clutch System

Automatic "Duck" Clutch System



 

The 'Duck' semi-automatic clutch completely removes the requirement for left leg operation in a manual vehicle. A small lever on the gear knob controls the clutch pedal allowing complete operation of the clutch for the driver. Extremely suitable where an automatic version of the vehicle is not available. Although in essence manual, the 'Duck' is 'intelligent', being computer-controlled, and performs a true 'fly-by-wire' control of the clutch; for instance knowing where the 'bite point' of the clutch is and automatically finding it on slight release of the lever. Full clutch control is performed extremely naturally.Key FeaturesHand only gear change No modifications to original vehicle parts Vehicle can be driven conventionally

Guido Simplex "America Lever" Hand Controls

Guido Simplex "America Lever" Hand Controls

Engineered with Quality and Safety in Mind!



 

America Lever

The NEW America Lever is a unique mechanical brake and mechanical accelerator column mounted on the right or left of the steering wheel. No more tedious push and pull mechanism that hits your leg, or rods impeding your ingress or egress from the vehicle.
The new America Lever accelerator is operated by a smooth radial action with the lever in a fixed position, and braking is affected by simply pushing the same lever forward which will disengage the acceleration immediately. The America Levers simply progressive action allows the opportunity for easy and safe driving. The America Lever has an “optional package” that includes cruise control, horn and brake lock.

Guidosimplex 916R - "Ghost" Hand Control Accelerator Ring

 Guidosimplex 916R - "Ghost" Hand Control Accelerator Ring

The latest in Hand Control Technology



 

Innovative and revolutionary accelerating system

Ghost . . . an innovative and revolutionary hand control accelerating system, mounted directly underneath the steering well. This solution is the result of over 60 years experience and allows the end user to accelerate by simply performing a natural rotary movement (Clockwise and/or Anticlockwise) whilst keeping both hands on the steering wheel which favors the different driving conditions. This unique design renders the device unobtrusive to the point that it is almost invisible. The severe tests to which this device was submitted in order to gain the UN-EC approval and also that of the Italian Ministry of Transport are a further guarantee of safety and reliability.

Menox Hand Controls

Menox Hand Controls



 

The Menox Hand Control  is specifically designed to give physically limited drivers the benefit of control and ease when driving a vehicle. Driving becomes an easy and enjoyable experience with Menox. The Menox Hand Control is designed to be used by the right hand as in traditional shifting.

The Hand Control operates in one straight and ergonomic range of motion so that accelerating and braking are distinctive and easy to use in the flow of traffic. Pushing forward engages the brake and easing back accelerates.

Easy and Multi-purpose

When choosing the multi-function grip, the driver maximizes their ability to control the car operating headlights, turn signals, windshield wipers or wiper/washer and horn from the same central place, the Menox Hand Grip. This way, a function can be used at the same time as the brakes and accelerator.

It is only obvious that drivers have many different driving positions. One may want to hold the steering wheel the same time as accelerating, while another may want to rest their elbow on the console and use the control with the palm of their hand.

The universal Menox Hand Control  can be installed to both the right and left side of the car. Menox's engineering enables the hand control to be effortlessly adjusted to every individual driver's needs.

Likewise features can be added to the Hand Control at a later date as the driver deems necessary.

The grip can be vertically adjusted 15 cm (6 in) and the shaft can be tilted 95-105 degrees. Each personal adjustment; height of the grip and the right momentum can be achieved for each individual. The range of motion is also amazingly smooth. The power transmission tube allows for the sliding front/back personal adjustments of 7 cm (3 in).

The tube going to the pedals is smartly equipped with a 7 cm (3 in) threaded adjustment. While the ball and fork joint allow for the power transmission tube can be installed as close to the center console as possible. The significance of all of these personal adjustments equal more leg room for the driver.

One of the Menox Hand Controls most appealing solutions is the attachment of the pedals. A car brake pedal may be composed of bent metal or full metal.

Likewise the accelerator pedal can be made of many different materials, from metal to plastic electronic pedals. Therefore the direction in which the accelerator is turned has no effect on the feasibility of attachment. There are dozens of ways in which the brake and gas pedals can be attached, even when bending to the left.

 
 
Tests

Menox Hand Controls stress reliability. In preparation for providing a durable and high quality product, we have developed our own quality assurance and test programs  along with test apparatus. Also, all Menox parts are rust-free coated, lengthening the devices life span and durability.

Our German importer Petri+Lehr sold our driving device with Multima brand. Our product was therefore the first driving device to receive a demanding TÜV product approval  in the summer of 2003

MPS Hand Controls

MPS Hand Controls



 

Better Life Mobility is proud to be an authorized dealer of MPS Hand Controls. The MPS-1A is often recommended by rehabilitation driving specialists because it uses a natural method for brake and accelerator movement. It is almost a "must" for a person with severe hand and wrist weakness.

The MPS Monarch-1A is a smooth operator, offering miles and miles of relaxed driving. The brake is applied by pushing the operating handle toward the brake pedal. Moving the handle toward the drivers seat activates the accelerator. The brake and accelerator may be operated separately or simultaneously. Installation of the MSP-1A requires a minimum modification to the vehicle. It may be used for either right or left hand operation. It does require an automatic transmission, power steering and power brakes.
