Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9853379A1] An ergonomically shaped lever for initiating movements in mobile or stationary vehicles. The lever comprises a handle (70) which has a substantially asymmetric cylindrical shape about a longitudinal axis (100), to correspond to the gripping of a hand and a switch (60) having one or more switching points. The switch further has at least one part (40) which protrudes from the handle (70), which is arranged in the longitidudinal direction to the handle, to manually be switched by a hand or a finger. The protruding part (40) projects so that, when a hand and/or a finger performs a movement parallel to the longitudinal direction of the handle, a force is produced which is directed inwards towards the longitudinal axis (100) of the handle.
