This particular piece of disabled driving equipment is used by the handicapped driver who’s using a prosthetic two fingered hook. One of the fingers fits on the outside of the ring, and the other goes inside – this provides ample leverage for turning as well as a secure attachment. What’s more is that this device can be quickly remove, and combined with a detachable hand control (if required) allows for the vehicle to be used by able bodied drivers.
Generally however, amputees will still be able to use their legs so in the vast majority of cases only the amputee spinner will be required for attachment as opposed to the hand controls. The attachment process is very simple and simply requires the push of a button.
If you can’t use your legs (or one leg) then you’ll need hand controls to be used in conjunction with this type of handicapped driving device.
Generally you’ll find that MPS Monarch hand controls are quite good, but they don’t allow for an able bodied driver the ability to pilot the vehicle – so it’s important to recognize that other models; perhaps by GuidoSimplex, are a good option.
The actual device itself is simply a ring which is securely attached to the rim of the steering wheel.
