Thank you for visiting NEW ABILITY. There are literally thousands of satisfied customers in the Chicagoland area who have already been to NEW ABILITY for Left Gas Pedals, Hand Driving Controls and Bruno Transfer Seats and Wheelchair and Scooter lifts. You will find the Adaptive Equipment you are looking for right here.
Left Gas Pedals and Hand Control can be installed into almost any vehicle. However, it is a good idea to find out what model lift or transfer seat base may be required before you choose a vehicle, as not all equipment will fit in all vehicles. Please have the name and model of the wheelchair or scooter that you need to transport when you call for an evaluation by phone or by Email.

If you have mobility in mind, I'm your guy. In business since 1985, I welcome customers who used to go to Midwest Mobility, or Freedom Driving Aids, or Wheeltec, or Adaptive Products, or Vehicle Ventures, or Classic Coach, or Crown Custom Coach, or even as far back as Wright way of Illinois, or R J Mobility Systems. They have all faded away but I will still provide you with top quality products and service at the best prices. Find out for yourself today.

NEW ABILITY is a small company, we service one or two customers at a time and we do everything by appointment. We will not try to sell you what you do not need. When you come in for service or an installation you will be glad to know that our "waiting room" encompasses a nearby shopping center with a few big box stores, out-lying restaurants and a movie theater to make your wait time a pleasure.


NEW ABILITY has recently moved. We are a half block west of our previous shop location. If you know where we were at, you could continue west through that parking lot, cross Tenth Ave and stop at the second building in that alleyway, the building with the green and white fence (a rear entrance). Phone in or honk your horn when you arrive.

Our new shop is located at 1005 W. Main St. in Melrose Park Illinois, (just west of Tenth Ave.) From Lake St, find Tenth ave (Mobile gas station/car wash on corner) and turn south. Drive to 3/4 of a block to alleyway just past white building and turn right. Find the second building (with green and white fence) and you are there. In the near future, you will be able to enter the building from Main St. and drive through.

From the South, Lake St is two miles north of Roosevelt Road and Hines VA hospital, or 1 mile north of the Eisenhower Expy I-290. From I-294 (if northbound) take Roosevelt east to Ninth Ave or First Ave and turn north and go to Lake St. Then turn west and go to Tenth Ave and turn south.

Or take I-294 Tri-state northbound, to I-290 Eisenhower east, then exit at 17th Ave east and stay alongside the expy until you reach Ninth Ave and turn left onto Ninth Ave. Go north 1 mile to Lake St and turn left, then find Tenth Ave and turn left again, then the alleyway and turn right.

From the north or west, we are two mile east of RT 45 Mannheim Rd, or four miles east of the I-294 Lake St/North Ave exit. Go east on Lake St to Tenth Ave and turn right (Mobile gas station/car wash on corner). We are one block south of Lake St. You may exit I-290 (if southbound) at ST. Charles Rd. and go east to Ninth Ave. then go north (left) across the tracks to Lake St and turn west. Go one block to Tenth Ave and turn south. Turn right into alleyway (past white building) and we are the second building with a green and white fence.

From the East: On I-290 westbound, exit at Ninth Ave. and turn right. Go north 1 mile, then pass the railroad tracks and turn west on Lake St. Find Tenth Ave (Mobile gas station/car wash on corner) and turn left.
