About the solution
Bernard had to cope with the problem of controlling speed and brakes on the right side of the bike, since he can’t move his right hand, arm and shoulder.
The solution he came up with consists of inverting the left and right handles, as well as the rear derailleur control. The rear brake control (which is most often used) is also turned left.
This adaptation does not entail any cost and does not require any specific equipment.
