Brig-Ayd Controls are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of Wheelchair/Scooter hoists, Hand controls, Left Foot accelerators, Steering knobs and other Driving aids for disabled drivers and passengers. Brig-Ayd Controls have specialised in car adaptations for the disabled since 1975 generating nearly forty years experience.
Our equipment is manufactured at Brig-Ayd Controls in Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire and is made to the highest engineering standard. Safety and reliability are the major factors influencing the design and fitting of our equipment.
It was in the late 1950's that Peter Briggs, Owen’s father first adapted a car to meet the needs of a disabled driver. His wife, who had contracted polio, had bought a new Mini. Peter, a chartered engineer who worked on servo systems for radar guidance during the war, used this experience to design and fit servo assisted hand controls with hydraulic links to the pedals of her car. Years later, after he had started trading as Brig-Ayd Controls, these servo systems formed the basis of many early adaptations and provided years of trouble free motoring for many disabled drivers.
Peter was joined by his son Owen in 1983. With their combined engineering expertise the business expanded and is now run by Owen and his wife Denise. The business, with its large fulltime staff now has two workshops.
