Is it also possible to integrate the Brake, Accelerator Functions available to the Driver available on the Steering wheel to the Driver through re-engineering process ?.

If it is possible, then do you feel this could be advantageous to the current acceleration, braking mechanism available to the driver near the feet ?.

Answer
All functions can be  modified for those disabled persons wishing to drive. Steering, turn signals, rain wipers, brakes, accelerator, etc. sometimes a joystick control is utilized as are other types of controls. The modifications are based on an individual's disability and usually prescribed by an independent assessment company. People without arms or legs can be taught to use this equipment.
