Guidosimplex 906 Accelerator Ring

The New Guidosimplex Detachable Quick-Release Accelerator Ring hand control mounts easily over any steering wheel, and with a push of a button, detaches just as easily. Gently push the ring towards the steering wheel to accelerate and the pressure remains constant at any speed.

The 906 Accelerator Ring allows you to keep your hands on the wheel in a comfortable and natural position that requires very little effort and does not interfere with airbag deployment. An incredibly convenient switch provides power to either the accelerator ring or the gas pedal, allowing ambulatory drivers to drive the vehicle. All installations are performed with minimal impact on the vehicle's existing operating systems.

Guidosimplex All-in-One Driving Controls

The Guidosimplex All-in-One is a unique mechanical brake and accelerator column mounted on the right or left of the steering wheel. No more of the tedious push and pull mechanism that hits your leg, or rods that impede your ingress or egress from the vehicle. The electronic radial accelerator and forward push brake lets you accelerate and brake in your vehicle with only a minimal rotational movement of the hand. There is no dashboard cutting required to install this device and the multiple adjustments in angle and in length allow this device to be installed in almost any vehicle. This device interface also features infrared remote circuitry in order to activate the vehicle’s secondary controls. There are three versions of this lever depending of the type the handle: America (knob handle), Quad Light (handgrip handle) and Quad Support (handgrip handle with support).

Guidosimplex Brake Lever

This new Long-Arm Brake Lever represents our most up-to-date generation of hand control levers. Made entirely of aluminum and coated with embossed rubber, this convenient and durable lever integrates perfectly with the vehicle's interior. Can be installed for either the right or left hand. This innovative design also features a mechanical lever or button that will automatically lock the brakes so hands are free to shift the transmission.

Guidosimplex Duck Clutch

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 with the driver's hands. Extremely suitable where an automatic version of the vehicle is not available. Although in essence it is manual, the 'Duck' is 'intelligent'. It is, internally, computer-controlled and performs a 'fly-by-wire' control of the clutch. For instance, the device knows where the 'bite point' of the clutch is and will automatically find it on slight release of the lever. This device allows full clutch control to be performed extremely naturally.

 

Sure Grip Push-Right Angle Hand Control

The Sure Grip Push-Right Angle hand control utilizes a body that doesn't pivot or move when the accelerator is applied. This is different from other Sure Grip products in that the pivot point is on the left-hand side of the wheel and only the handle is able to pivot. The many benefits of the Push-Right Angle hand control are increased leg room, full acceleration without hitting the drivers lap, and easier two handed contact with the steering wheel.

The BraunAbility UVL

 

The BraunAbility UVL, or Under Vehicle Lift, provides an innovative solution to your personal mobility needs. The mobility lift can be mounted underneath a full-size wheelchair accessible vehicle, and is virtually out of site and out of the way until it is used.

This design frees up valuable interior space and allows easier access into the vehicle for additional passengers. The lift is activated by the standard hand-held or remote control and, with one click of the button, the lift smoothly deploys from the underneath the vehicle. Deploying and retracting your lift in this way makes it easier to enter and exit your wheelchair accessible vehicle.

The UVL lift features include a slip-resistant platform, automatic roll stop, and an integrated manual backup system which allows you to safely get on and off the ramp. Your freedom is just a push of the button away with the BraunAbility UVL van lift!
