The challenge

The client has a medical condition that restricts the movement of her hands. She was having difficulty using the short speed control levers on her mobility scooter.

The solution

Extensions to the two control levers were made from 15mm copper tube, flattened at one end, wrapped with foam rubber, and then covered over with heat shrink sleeving. The open ends were were sealed with Sugru. The extensions were attached to the control levers with M3 screws and nuts.

The benefit

The client can now control the speed of her mobility scooter much more easily.
