    Hand Controls

    I saw a vehicle for sale on line and it had these hand controls in it. In the description they called them custom hand controls for a quad. Has anyone seen these before? Does anybody know what brand they are or are they custom made?

    Do you have any better pictures?

    They look to be a heavily modified set of push twist controls.

    I think this car is modified for the disabled people because it has the hand control. I can't say anything about its brand because image is not clearly show.

    What type steering is that with the steering wheel so small?
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    I don't have any details that's why I was asking if anyone has seen these. I was researching hand controls and spotted the photos I posted.

    They appear to be a highly modified version of the Wells Engberg CT-100.

    its a reduced diameter wheel with a steering post extension.

    my best guess is it will have reduced or zero effort steering and braking.

    the hand control modification looks homemade (scary)

    there are a lot better ways to get a hand control installed in the proper position.

    I the steering wheel looks scary too. It seems like it would be too responsive to small movements, but maybe there are lots of these. That's why I asked.
