Steering Assist Device This device is designed for handicapped people who wish to drive. The device is a fully rotational grip that sits offset from the steering wheel. The product is intended for people who only have the use of one hand while operating a vehicle. The design is inspired by mechanical systems that pre-dated power steering. It if for this reason that aspects such as the bearing and bolts have been made visible through the face of the device.
