NEW: MFD Touch

The new Multi-Function Steering Knob (MFD) TOUCH from Petri+Lehr

MFD Touch von Petri+Lehr
 

The time finally arrived at the REHACARE: following intensive development work in cooperation with Starz and designkunst, the MFD TOUCH was to be found everywhere after just a few months! No wonder, because this is where technology meets design for the self-determined mobile freedom of persons with physical limitations. As a logical further development of the Petri+Lehr MFD (Multi-Function Steering Knob) driving aids, the buttons have been enlarged, ergonomics improved and the aesthetics are in keeping with a high-quality automobile. So that the four large buttons can trigger more than just four functions, each one understands long and short pushes. Added to this is revolutionary technology: the MFD TOUCH communicates securely and in code with the vehicle electrical system by radio!

Officially on the market since 2014, the new new Multi-Function Steering Knob (MFD) TOUCH could already been seen fitted in Mercedes, Audi and Volkswagen vehicles at the REHCARE.

A resounding success!

The Mercedes factory solution.

With immediate effect, the Mercedes factory solution is available from Petri+Lehr for the current Mercedes-Benz models. This means that Petri+Lehr customers can retrofit their steering wheel turning knob or their multi-function steering knob with the special bracket, which is otherwise only available directly from the factory on purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz, or can accordingly select it when purchasing a new vehicle.

This special bracket is mounted directly on the steering wheel. The steering wheel clamps / half shells on the steering wheel rim are omitted. A very elegant solution that integrates the Petri+Lehr driving aid even more into the steering wheel and the vehicle's interior.

This can be clearly seen in our title picture with the MFD TOUCH.
