About the author

Alan B. Ruprecht, born in USA, become seriously disabled from adult Polio. He soon realized that there was little he could do without the freedom of driving his automobile. The hand controls available at the time were too costly and poorly constructed. Using his engineering background and vast experience with cars and metals, he designed the Drive-Master Push-Pull Hand Control System to operate the gas and the brake by hand. He founded the Drive-Master company in 1952.
