The launch of a ground-breaking power wheelchair control system has been hailed a major success at the largest assistive and rehabilitative technology exhibition in the world.
Dynamic Controls, the world’s leading manufacturer of electronic controls for powered wheelchairs, launched its LiNX power control system at this year’s REHACARE, held at Messe Düsseldorf.
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 iOS devices.
In addition to the LiNX system, Dynamic Controls also showcased 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 tablets 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.
Charlotte Walshe, CEO of Dynamic Controls, said: “REHACARE exceeded all of our expectations. The reaction to our new technologies has been overwhelming and the interest shown in our systems from both existing and potential customers has been very positive.
“The exhibition has enabled us to engage with existing customers, potential new customers and end-users, from right across the globe. Our aim is to enable users to play a full and active part in society, so we’re delighted that our ground-breaking technology has been so well-received.”
