    Here are two I know of:Tim's Trim in Gates andAutocrafting in Henrietta are both near Rochester, and both QAP accredited for installation of mobility equipment. I have had work done by both.

    You could also try DriveMaster in northwestern NJ. They are closer than either place mentioned before. Check out there site and make your mind up. Good Luck.

    Just curious: Do you already have the hand controls and want them installed? If not, and you are buying new ones, you might try some manufactures of hand controls web-sites. They usually have a tab to locate a dealer, or maybe placing a telephone call to them could help you locate a dealer.

    Gates and Henrietta are suburbs of Rochester. Rochester is nowhere near New Jersey - about six hours by car.

    Shachor - You can find a qualified person through your state office of assistive technology or the local Center for Independent Living (CIL - a local office of information and referral) should be able to provide that information in your area. To find your local CIL, go to www.ilru.org Once on the site, click on 'directory of centers', in upper right hand corner of the home page. That will take you to a map of the U.S., then your state, etc. CRF
