Main Digest

A REVOLUTIONARY new power wheelchair control system which greatly improves the user ride experience is being launched at Rehacare 2012. Dynamic Controls, the world's leading manufacturer of electronic controls for powered wheelchairs, is launching its LiNX power control system at this year's exhibition.

This article is part our digest of 7 publications relating to Electric Wheelchairs that include:

The LiNX control system uses new load compensation techniques to vastly improve the user's ride experience. The technology gives superior chair control on difficult surfaces such as easier turning on thick carpets, as well as greater hold and stability on sloping surfaces.

The new system also heralds a revolutionary advance in programming freedom through wireless connectivity to PCs and iOS devices.

The new system will be exhibited at the Rehacare 2012 Exhibition, in Dusseldorf, Germany - the largest assistive and rehabilitative technologies fair in the world.

In addition to the LiNX system, Dynamic Controls will also be showcasing the next generation of its iPortal system - the iPortal Bluetooth Mouse Mover.

This latest addition to the iPortal range of products gives power wheelchair users control of their personal computers and portable computing devices using their power wheelchair joystick or specialty input devices.

Dynamic Controls' iPortal Mouse Mover allows users to access the web, browse online stores, write documents, pay bills, make phone calls and have full control of their computer and the online world through their wheelchair.

In addition, iPortal Mouse Mover can be upgraded via the App store to include Accessibility, pioneering functionality that gives the user full access to Apple iOS devices. Environmental control is simple with most infrared and wi-fi systems having interfacing Apps on smart phones and tablets, which are controlled using iPortal.
