Car Adaptations

There is an increasing number of firms in Ireland that manufacture and install adaptations in vehicles for people with disabilities. These can be simple steering attachments or hand controls for accelerating and braking for disabled drivers, to lower floored vehicles and converted wheelchair passenger vehicles for people who wish to travel in their wheelchair.

You should always check prices with the adaptation firms and shop around for the best value. It is advisable to get a written quote before committing to purchase.



Airbags and Drivers with Disabilities

In a car accident, a driver's head can sometimes hit the steering wheel or the front windscreen causing serious injury or even death. An airbag is designed to inflate and cushion the head to prevent it from hitting the steering wheel.

Drivers with disabilities often use a steering attachment to assist them when turning the wheel. This can be a spinner, a peg or sometimes a three pronged grip, or can be a system used in conjunction with an infrared device for the secondary controls.


Adapting your vehicle

You can get your vehicle adapted so that driving is safe and comfortable and getting in and out of the car is easier. There are motoring accessories available for people with upper or lower body disabilities or both.
