Disabled Vehicle Gas Ring, K5
K5 easy-fit makes the accelerator control manual by transferring it from the pedal to the wheel, which allows people with partial or complete lack of functionality to lower limbs to drive. It can be installed in cars with automatic gear, sequential transmission or automatic clutch.
The gas ring is placed under the original wheel of the car, in order not to alter the design of the car interior and to allow a smooth, natural driving as well as an excellent direction control in the turns, which is granted thanks to its settings, very similar to the traditional ones. K5 easy-fit doesn’t obstruct the airbag opening, keeps all the steering wheel regulations and doesn’t alter the view on the dashboard.
The exclusive “cut” shape of the new easy-fit gasring has a double functionality: it increases the space between the gasring itself and the driver’s legs, avoiding the risk of damages, and it allows the installation on the majority of vehicles available on the market, including those equipped with a “sports wheel”.
Thanks to its double stroke, K5 easy-fit allows the driver to choose among different driving modes, depending on the kind of road (straight lines, hairpin turns, etc.).
As a matter of fact, with K5 easy-fit you can accelerate:
1. By pulling the ring toward the wheel
2. By pushing the ring with the back of your fingers
3. By pushing the ring with your thumb from the inside of the wheel
4. By pushing the ring with the thumb of your hand resting on the brake lever next to the wheel.
The possibility to instantly switch driving mode prevents all kinds of soreness and weariness of fingers and hands, because they never maintain the same position for an extended period of time.
Moreover, thanks to a button integrated in the brake lever knob, it’s possible to engage the function “economizer”. When this function is engaged, the car power is reduced, so as to be ready for those situations requiring particular driving awareness (e.g. newly licensed drivers, parking manoeuvres or simply reduction of fuel consumption in city traffic). When the economy function is engaged, the LED placed on the dashboard is on.
K5 easy-fit is available both by interface and with motor. In the version by interface, which can be installed in most cars with an electronic gas pedal, acceleration with the original pedal can be restored at any moment by a switch placed in a comfortable position for the driver, while in the version with motor the gas pedal remains always active. In both versions K5 easy-fit is equipped with a safety system that annuls the acceleration in case of braking. This system does not activate in case of uphill starts or delicate maneuvers such as parking.
K5 easy-fit is approved by the EMC as well as CE-marked. This product has a 5 year warranty from invoice date.
