The installation of a brand new pedal on the left side which is linked to the right acceleration pedal allows the left foot control of the acceleration of the car.
The reason this is useful (and far more useful than an accelerator only pedal guard) is because driving requires constant use of the acceleration as opposed to the occasional need to brake.
This means that driving, especially over long distances, is much easier because you can use your leg instead of your arms for most of the effort required.
This model (the 3545) has an accelerator pedal guard fit over the old acceleration pedal with a new pedal being placed on the left hand side.
It features a quick release mechanism (like most of MPD’s driving aids) which allows for able bodied use of the vehicle whenever necessary.
- If you can’t use your legs at all then it’s worth looking into MPD’s gas and brake guard for regular cars/vehicles.
Of if you use a lowered floor minivan then using their lowered floor pedal guard is the best option for you because it reaches much further up and the cover is much larger.
Generally Mobility Products and Design only features a very limited number of pedal attachments, all of them apart from this are some type of pedal guard.
I would recommend looking at the GuidoSimplex left foot accelerator pedals on offer because they offer more choice and flexibility than MPD.
