Hinged Accelerator Pedal

Hinged Accelerator Pedal

Designed to be used in conjunction with our hand controls, this adaptation eliminates the risk of the hand control user operating the accelerator pedal by mistake. It also provides additional space and a more comfortable driving position.

A more comfortable driving position

The hand control mechanically replicates the use of the brake and accelerator pedals, therefore whilst driving with a hand control, it is important that nothing impedes the pedals full range of movement.

Keeping your feet away from the pedals can cause the driver to sit in an unnatural driving position, also putting your knee closer to the hand control handle.

The accelerator pedal can be hinged out of the way to free up space in the footwell. This additional room created means the space on the right of the brake pedal is similar to that on the left. This allows a driver to stretch out both legs to achieve a much more comfortable driving position and move the knees further away from the hand control.

A hinged accelerator pedal can also be beneficial if the driver thinks they may automatically go to press the accelerator pedal with their foot. If a driver has involuntary movements, a hinged accelerator pedal can be fitted alongside a brake only pedal guard.

*Please note, a hinged accelerator pedal is not possible on all vehicle models therefore if it is something you require, please contact us to check availability.

Seating Position without Hinged Accelerator Pedal

Trying to keep your feet clear of the pedals forces you into a unnatural driving position which can lead to discomfort.
