Seven surgeries on my left knee including a full knee replacement has left my T's setting a lot. I am going to build something that I can move from T to T to help. Have some ideas in hinging a lever with a 2"x6" wood base, connecting a rod between the lever and low gear peddle. If you have made such or have some good ideas, please share. I just can't safely get my left foot up on the peddle quick enough. Am contimplacing another surgery to help reduce the pain and increase flexibility. Maybe.

In the second reference there is a picture of an advert for extending all three pedals for hand control. Looks like a nightmare to drive, but the low speed clutch looks reasonable. Looks like it bolts on with a single bolt.

I've been dealing with leg use issues for 25 years after fighting cancer that left me with numbness. Although I can use the pedals to drive modern cars, I've equipped my modern vehicles with hand controls. My thoughts are to start with something similar to pedal extensions. Connecting the extensions via a pivot rod with a t- handle to a special bracket mounted to the column. The bracket would not hold the weight of the controls but merely add support. This set-up would be close to the portable hand controls available now. No doubt there will be bugs to work out and they'd need to be tested over and over before driving on any roads.
