Individuals in the market for a mobility van will now find several different types of hand controls available at Kersey Mobility, including some truly innovative options.
Hand controls are vital to some drivers. For wheelchair vans, there are several different styles available. Kersey Mobility offers several of these styles and options for drivers. They come in different styles to accommodate different needs and can be installed and adjusted to make sure that they're perfect for the driver in question.
Some drivers with handicap vans will need a combination of easy control and knee clearance when they're driving. It's also important that technicians are able to control the position of hand controls so that the driver can easily manipulate levers such as the turn signals and other devices on the vehicle.
Kersey Mobility now offers the 3500KX control that meets all of these standards. The offset handle on this assistive device can be rotated 360 degrees, which ensures that the additional hardware on the steering wheel doesn't result in a cramped space for driving. The driver can also have the handle adjusted so that they can get more leverage when they're driving, which is important for some people who need more assistance with handling the wheel. Wrist supports are also available to make sure that driving for longer stretches of time is not too difficult.
Dealers can also install foam grips with longer shafts, if this works better for the driver. Kersey Mobility also offers the 3500F model, which makes wheelchair vans more drivable for those who want a bit more length in their hand controls. This also offers more leverage, so drivers get a more precise feel when they're braking and accelerating, which not only makes driving safer, it also can make it a bit more fun.
For drivers who want a control that is very easy to manipulate, the 3700 model is now available. Handicap vans equipped with this control allow drivers to engage the gas and the brakes with a simple push and pull motion. There are also additional modifications that the company can now make to vehicles, including setting up the blinkers and horn to be operated with this type of control. These controls can be set up for left- or right-handed drivers. Technicians can custom fit these to different vehicles, but it's good to ask if the vehicle you're looking at can take this type of control before you choose it.
With the many different options for hand controls in wheelchair vans now available, the vehicles can be much more enjoyable to drive and handle better. Between better wheelchair lifts, assistive chairs and other devices, these vans have developed a great deal in recent years and offer drivers quite a few new and convenient features.
