Secondary Controls

Lodgesons Bleeper Button

Bleeper Systems

Bleepers enable the remote operation of the secondary controls on the vehicle via a single button which can be located anywhere within reach of the driver.

You press the button and it starts beeping. Depending on how many beeps it makes before you let go, it will perform a specific function.

It has 13 functions covering: indicators, horn, headlights, wipers, washers.

The button can be operated with the hand, head, elbow, knees, or whichever part is easiest.

Bleeper systems are a driving lifeline for many different disabilities. Limited use of the arms can mean that reaching the stalks on the vehicle is difficult, even painful. It is very often the case that with a lower limb disability the arms have to operate the throttle, brakes and steering. It becomes difficult to let go in order to operate the secondary controls on the vehicle’s stalks.

Infra red steering devices.

Usually when a driver is in need of a steering device it means they have either limited mobility in their upper body or, their other arm is operating hand controls of some description.

For the arm that is not steering it can be difficult to operate the secondary controls in a safe, painless and efficient manner.

Infra reds are the solution! They have a control panel attached to the steering device which enables the same hand that is steering to operate the secondary controls.

They come with 7, 10, 13 and 18 functions (indicators, horn, headlights, wipers, washers, etc…) depending on your requirements and with  different grips.

Fixed Secondary Controls.

Fixed secondary controls are used to allow remote operation of the secondary controls on the vehicle via a panel which can be located anywhere that is within easy reach of the driver. They come with 7, 10, 13 and 18 functions (indicators, horn, headlights, wipers, washers, etc…) depending on the driver’s requirements.

They are necessary for many different disabilities. Limited use of the arms can make reaching the stalks on the vehicle difficult or painful. It’s often the case that lower limb disabilities mean that the arms are fully taken up operating the throttle, brakes and steering. It becomes difficult to let go in order to operate the secondary controls on the vehicle’s stalks.
