Driving with Vehicle Modifications

Driving with Vehicle Modifications

Not everyone knows this, but vehicle accessibility modifications are very present in today's world and are used by many. Modifications can solve the problems of getting in and out of the car for people with disabilities or limited mobility. There are also modifications for seat height issues, seat belt usage, and reaching the controls within the car. Automotive accessibility has come a long way in recent years and we are going to share with you a few key vehicle modifications that can make your vehicle more accessible.  

Types of Modifications 

Pedal Modifications 

There are many pedal and accelerator modification options available for vehicles. These can include things like pedal extensions to make them easier to reach. There are also mechanical and electric pedal options available. These modifications can increase the range of motion for individuals and allow people to use the opposite foot for pedals depending on their abilities.  

Hand Controls

Hand controls allow individuals to control the car with only their hands and can be very helpful in making the vehicle more accessible. They are a great option for drivers who are not able to control the car with their legs or feet. Hand controls come in a wide variety of options including push-pull systems which allow the user to control the car with a push-pull motion and push-rock levers which are helpful for individuals with limited mobility in their fingers.  

Ramps

To make the vehicle more wheelchair accessible there are ramps and wheelchair lifts available. These can help make it easier to get in and out of the vehicle. There are automated and manual ramp options available as well as transfer seats that will allow easier access to the vehicle with the ability to drive.
