Now Available: Knee Air-bag Compatible Hand Controls

To meet the changing demands placed on the industry by vehicle manufacturers, the design team at PME have developed an exclusive Knee Intrusion Air-bag Compatible Hand Control System.

Until now, vehicle modifiers for the disabled have been unable to install hand controls into vehicles with Knee Intrusion Air-bags, and as a result, hand control  users have had a further restricted choice of vehicle. This is because it is necessary for the hand controls to run below the dash, and right across the air-bag, making them a hazard should the air-bag deploy. As increasing numbers of vehicle manufacturers are incorporating these air-bags as standard safety features to improve the safety rating of their vehicles, the flip side is that hand control users have been limited in their range of choices among new vehicles.

PME have seen and met the need to develop a Hand Control System that is compatible with these vehicles to uphold our promise that "There hasn't been a vehicle we couldn't modify yet!" and to allow our customers the freedom to choose from a wider range of vehicles. The system successfully bypasses the problem and  satisfies current RTA requirements.

However, we still advise that customers avoid vehicles fitted with Knee Intrusion Airbags as unfortunately this system comes at an extra cost. Please discuss your intentions with us before purchasing a vehicle with these Air-bags.
