There used to be a company [can not remember name] that use to do just what you need.    And they where on the cheaper side.     But UL made them quit [they could not get them appoved].     If you know a good electrican they can rewire a normal hood to do what you need to.       Thanks Night Owl for that website, interesting stuff.

I found this interesting site:   http://www.accessible-kitchens.com/

It doesn't seem to have what you are looking for, but offers many ideas and an 800 number that you can call.  Maybe they can guide you further.

Good luck, and please come back and let us know what you find out!

We are remodeling our kitchen and need a simple under cabinet stainless steel range hood to go with a gas slide-in range.  We went with a slide-in range because the controls are on the front of the stove, making it easier to reach for my wife who sometimes works from a wheelchair. 


All of the range hoods we've looked at have the controls built into (underneath or on the front of) the hood, which she won't be able to reach.  We've been directed to a few manufactures who make units with seperate controls that we could mount in a better location, such as Dacor, Fujioh, Serius and Zephyr, but these are all chimney hoods or fan systems to be installed in a custom hood.


Does anyone know of a product that will fit this need?  Thanks!
