Motorists with disabilities benefit from "Darios", a digital gas ring. This allows you to give throttle with your hands at the steering wheel. "Darios 211" consists of over 200 identical parts that slide over the flattened steel ring. These parts are made of iglide® I3 and are produced in 3D printing. Here the service team of igus® is always available. The main advantage is the self-lubricating application. This is all the more important as the gas ring manufacturer offers a 30-year equipment guarantee.
