DADC Mechanical Hand controls are reliable, attractive and affordable

At DADC, their philosophy is simple: deliver the best driving experience possible. Their hand controls are designed to become one with your car, so you are not driving a hand control you are driving your car.

Quality Materials and Reduced Maintenance

They use quality materials, including durable stainless steel for an attractive finished product. DADC uses self-lubricating components to eliminate maintenance, squeaks and grease stains on clothes.

Less Fatigue, Less Discomfort

Holding the DADC hand control in your hand feels light and natural, which is why our clients prefer it. Our ergonomic design is an extension of the body’s natural responses to reduce fatigue, especially on long distance drives or in stop and go traffic.

Road Tested to Racing Standards

DADC's founder’s son, Roger, is a racer, so when it came to design, it was important for William to build a hand control that delivered on the racetrack not only the road. The patented vacuum assist provides better throttle control, especially in tight turns or on bumpy roads.

Protect your Automotive Investment, Share with Pedal Pushing Drivers

DADC hand controls fit a wide range of vehicles with little or no cutting to the dashboard. Our cable operated throttle control means a cockpit free of clutter and unencumbered access for you and your pedal pushing family and friends.

Automobile Handicap Hand Control System - DADC 500

This automobile handicapped hand control works with a vacuum assisted twist grip to give you precise, effortless, finger-tip control of the throttle. In addition, the floor area is free, making it possible for other drivers to easily share a vehicle equipped with this system. The twist approach uses less space than other lever actuated hand controls.


Automobile Handicap Hand Control System - DADC500P


The 500P model offers the same vacuum assist capabilities as the 500 model, but uses a pull throttle to control acceleration and braking instead of a twisting action. This motion gives those with limited gripping capacity the same effortless operation as the 500 model and uses only a little more room for operation.

Both the DADC500 and DADC500P provide a rugged and seemingly simple ergonomic design, allowing the driver to rest a hand on the handle while controlling the vehicle through turns and over rough roads. This results in better control and less fatigue, especially on long trips.

We've been installing these all over New England for close to 20 years.
