New Technology for Driving With A Disability

New technology has benefited every aspect of our lives in recent years as a number of aids for those with disabilities have become commercially available. But with a number of them in the market, which can benefit you the most? In this article, we will be looking into this new technology as well as how it can help those suffering from a disability.

Electronic Gear Selectors

One of the biggest aids to driving with a disability is the electronic gear selectors. This not only helps the user to drive the car in a safe manner, but it allows for very minimal arm movement making this the ideal option for many. To select the gear, it is as simple as placing your foot on the brake and selecting the gear that you want with a quick response time for a natural driving experience regardless of the car that you are looking to fit it in.

Blind Spot Monitoring

Though this is often present in a number of high-end cars on the market, fitting a blind spot sensor to your car is one of the best ways to ensure you have a safe journey to and from your chosen location. Though this may be distracting at first, blind-spot monitoring can help to reduce risk when on the road as well as help you to identify any dangers that may be lurking in the blind spot. This is highly beneficial for those with disabilities as it enables them to see a warning when they are met with potential danger and raises their attention, helping to increase overall safety regardless of whether you are driving an Alfa Romeo or a top of the line Land Rover.

Extra Wide Doors

If you are looking for another advancement to aid in getting in and out of the car, there are also a number of models on the market that have extra-wide doors. This allows users to get in and out of the car with minimal damage as well as additional space for elements such as a walker or a buggy. In addition to this, these doors can be fitted with keyless entry to make entry a lot easy in the long run.

All Access Automated Ramps

The final way that technology has helped to aid those with a disability is the use of automated ramps. This not only helps you and your loved ones to get in and out of the car, but this also allows you to enjoy your ability to drive. This allows you to get mobility scooters and other equipment in and out of the car with ease to enjoy a night out without having to struggle to get your belongings in and out of the car.

With this in mind, there are a number of advancements on the horizon that are set to make driving with a disability far more accessible for so many allowing those that wish to, to enjoy the perfect day out with their family. Which of these will you be purchasing first?
