Steering wheel accessories can help you drive safely and maintain your independence. These accessories help you better grip and steer your vehicle and can be customized to fit your needs.
Experience technicians at Hampton Roads Mobility install a variety of steering wheel accessories, including:
Spinner knobs are round knobs that you can grip to maintain control of the steering wheel. It requires less effort to use that the steering wheel alone.
A tri-in grip can help you hold the steering wheel if you have poor gripping strength and poor stability or strength in your wrists. The comfortable design helps you use your forearm to turn and hold the wheel.
V-grips, or palm grips, help you grab the wheel if you cannot close your hand or have trouble gripping the wheel, but still have good wrist strength. It allows you to have a stable grip while leaving your hand mostly open.
Single pin grips provide a comfortable way to hold the wheel if you cannot fully closely your hand. It may be an alternative to spinner knobs.
Amputee rings are designed for drivers who have prosthetic hooks. These easy-to-install and remove rings give drivers more control.
