Wheelchair Users Control an IPhone or IPOD Touch Via Their Wheelchair Joystick

A pioneering solution that gives wheelchair users the ability to control an iPhone or iPod touch via their wheelchair joystick will be unveiled for the first time at this year's Rehacare exhibition.

 

The next generation of the iPortal is Dynamic Control's latest solution to help enhance the quality of life of people living with a disability; allowing people with limited hand access to surf the internet, make phone calls, have access to friends and also use the speech assistance functions.

 

To control an iPhone through the DX2 REM 550 remote represents a quantum leap in functionality for wheelchair users.

 

iPortal was launched in July this year and displays wheelchair information in real time, alerting the user to things such as the speed range indicator, compass heading, a seat adjustment indicator and the battery state. There's also a diagnostics feature that interprets any problems with the wheelchair and enables clear communication with support services.
