Driving controls and vehicle adaptations Brake, Acceleration and Pedals

Bever Electric Brake and Accelerators

The ultimate in ‘hand’ controls – a fully functioning brake and accelerator system that can be operated by virtually any limb, knee, shoulder or finger.

The Bever Electric Brake and Gas system uses electric motors to operate the brake and accelerator, enabling drivers with significantly reduced mobility in their hands or arms to control all aspects of the vehicle’s acceleration and braking systems. The driver controls the motors by simply pressing a ‘zero-effort’ electronic control or using a joystick.

A main feature of the Bever EBG system is that the input devices can be modified,so if you can’t operate one of the standard electronic controls then one can be made by our experienced technicians to suit your individual needs

Light, progressive and easy to use, the Bever EBG system can be used in conjunction with other steering systems/lighten power steering or even quite simply a steering aid

The Electric Brake and Accelerator is ideal for:

Drivers with progressive disabilities

Drivers with high-level spinal cord injury

Drivers with severely limited strength and movement

SmartBrake

Without altering the original brake system (still operable by non-handicapped drivers), SmartBrake enables operation of the brakes by various disabled driving hand controls using very little force.

Very reliable

Perfectly controllable

Easy to install

Extensive diagnostics and tuning options

SmartGas

This adaptation makes it possible to operate the original accelerator, or an alternative input device with a minimum of effort. SmartGas is suitable for the most type of cars with an original electronic accelerator.

SmartGas is connected between the original accelerator pedal and the car’s motor management. It simulates the signals from the original accelerator, to the motor management.

Very light control and the operation is noiseless

Protected against braking and accelerating at the same time

Suitable for all vehicles with an electronic original accelerator

No noticeable reaction time

No mechanical parts (maintenance free)

Gas/brake stick

Gives the driver the option to control the gas and brake with the fingers. It can be used with the right or left hand.  The gas/brake stick differs from the gas/brake slider  by using a refined hand/finger motion to accelerate and brake instead of a sliding one. The gas/brake stick is commonly used by muscular diseases. The direction of operation of gas and brake is selectable by software.

Gas/brake slider with tri-pin and switch module

The gas/brake slider can be accommodated with a switch module. Through this switch module four switches can be actuated by turning or tilting the 3-pin device. Common functions operated this way are turn signals, window wipers and lights. The driver can now perform the most important actions required for driving with one hand.
