The main reason you’d use this device is if you had a very weak grip and so using a knob or handle which was attached to the wheel would be impossible or too difficult to sustain over long journeys.
This particular piece of driving equipment only requires you to insert your hand and palm in between the leather-bound metal strips.
This means that you can turn without needing to use your fingers or wrist, but rather by using the muscle strength in your arm.
- Furthermore you can actually reshape the metal strips to a size/shape which is best for you.
For the vast majority of drivers this type of steering equipment simply isn’t required because generally hand grip strength isn’t affected by most disabilities.
- On the other hand there will be a minority of people (especially with degenerative diseases) who’ll find this incredibly useful.
The only way it’s different to the palm spinner is that the metal strips are longer and shoot up and out at a near-vertical angle.
