Hand Driving Controls

Hand controls for accelerator and brake

Picture1

The Carospeed is a floor mounted hand control that is designed to be used with your left hand to operate the accelerator and brake in the vehicle.  Its styling and positioning in the vehicle make it look like a factory accessory blending in with the rest of the interior.

You push the lever of the Carospeed forward to brake and pull towards yourself to accelerate.  Every model comes standard with a hill holder function, acting like a park brake, leaving your hands free to change gears or adjust other components in the vehicle.  The same button can have the option of cruise control wired in.

The Carospeed is designed in a way to optimise the space around the driver, being positioned along the transmission tunnel means that you can still have full functionality of your steering wheel and not compromising on knee-room.  The other advantage of its positioning is the ability to keep the knee-airbag of the vehicle intact and not changing the safety features of the vehicle.

KIA SOUL LF12

The brake lever LF12 makes the brake control manual by transferring it from the pedal to the wheel. It can be installed in cars with automatic gear, sequential transmission or automatic clutch. It represents an ideal driving solution for the drivers with partial or complete lack of lower limbs functionality.


To brake it’s enough to push the lever forward, toward the dashboard. It can be installed on the right or on the left of the steering wheel.


The lever handle consists of a knob made of a material which doesn’t transmit heat or cold to the hand. It’s equipped with three buttons: horn, hill holder and economizer. The economizer (when in combination with a Kivi electronic accelerator) reduces the power of the vehicle: when the device is activated, the power of the car is reduced so as to be ready for those situations requiring particular driving awareness (e.g. newly licensed drivers, parking manoeuvres or simply in city traffic in order to reduce the fuel consumption). To engage the hill holder, just exert a pressure on the lever and press the respective button. To disengage it, just press the lever a bit further down and let go.
