In such cases, it is particularly common to control the wheelchair with a joystick. For this control to be feasible, the wheelchair should have electronics that can be removed. This allows the right option to be selected from the wide range of joysticks. If control with arms and hands is no longer possible at some point, various models can be controlled with the chin or lips.
Here, professional consideration must be given to which option is most suitable. This allows those affected to retain a certain degree of mobility and independence for as long as possible. With the use of sensors, the wheelchair can still be steered even when power is no longer possible.
In addition, further devices can be controlled by means of add-on modules on the wheelchair. These include doors, the TV, the smartphone or the computer, to name just a few examples. These solutions should be requested at an early stage, as a certain amount of familiarization is usually required.
