Ellie Smith demonstrates how she drives with one hand using a keyless entry and ignition and a unique adaptation to her steering wheel.

Steering Wheel Adaptation

Ellie uses a Lodgesons Lollipop adaptation that attaches to her steering wheel. She states the adaptation has the following functions:

  • Front/Back Screen Wash
  • Main Beam
  • Left and Right Indicator
  • Horn
  • Cancel Indicators/Hazards
  • Front Windscreen Indicators (On and Off)

Ellie is able to perform these functions all with a touch of a button.
