With a left foot accelerator pedal, accelerator functions of the vehicle are converted to left foot use for those with limited or no use of the right foot.
R&J Mobility Service currently offers left foot accelerator pedals manufactured by Mobility Products & Design (MPD) and Manufacturing & Production Services (MPS).
Electronic Left Foot Accelerator
The Electronic Left Foot Accelerator now requires the trained driver to activate the left pedal prior to each use to ensure that untrained drivers do not get access to the mobility device.
A push button switch is required to turn the system on and transfer function to the left accelerator pedal after the vehicle has been started. When done so, only the left pedal is functional and the (right) OEM pedal is non- operational.
The system always defaults to the right side accelerator pedal after the vehicles ignition has been turned off.
There is no need to remove the device.
We use only OEM proven circuits and OEM accelerator pedals to ensure the highest quality and reliability of the entire system.
The 3545 Left Foot Accelerator by MPD
The left foot accelerator is recommended by driver evaluators for drivers to accelerate using their left foot. It is equipped with a guard to prevent the driver from inadvertently resting their right foot on the accelerator pedal. The left foot accelerator incorporates a quick release mechanism and is easily removable for ambulatory drivers without tools.
The MPS Quick Release Left Foot Gas Pedal with Pedal Guard
The MPS Quick Release Left Foot Gas Pedal with Pedal Guard allows the driver to accelerate with the left foot. This pedal is installed on the left side and is mechanically linked to the original manufacturers pedal. The Pedal Guard shields the original pedal thereby making it inoperable. This quality crafted pedal is fully adjustable. The lightweight design of the pedal along with its quick release feature makes it quick and simple to remove. The MPS Quick Release Left Foot Gas Pedal with Pedal Guard is a smart choice.
