Active Controls’ ErgoReJoy modular platform provides instant joystick repositioning from right to left armrests, as well as any accessible location for a power chair user. An adjustable wrist support assures neutral positioning of the user’s upper body, shoulders, elbow and wrist. Clinicians can easily assess a client’s posture and functional abilities in any drive location. The ErgoReJoy system also comes with detailed assessment methodology: Compare and document the user’s postural positions and driving success at the standard joystick location and the best “Ergo” location to provide medical justification if repositioning the joystick.
Drive Control Assessment System
With five unique “live” drive control locations and the ability to install and instantly position standard joysticks and alternative drive controls on a power chair, Active Controls’ Drive Control Assessment System can help get the most out of every power chair evaluation. The system includes finger, hand, chin, tongue and head array input devices mounted on multiple, interchangeable, modular platforms so the seating and mobility team can assess the needs of almost any potential user.

i-Drive Control System
Designed around a proprietary Central Processing Unit and Advanced Programming Software, i-Drive’s combination of hardware and software brings state-of-the-art technology to the alternative drive control segment. Real-time feedback provides smoother control and improved driving efficiency to build confidence, even in new drivers or those with limited functional ability. Interaction between driver and system occurs in real time thanks to the i-Drive CPU, which works at a frequency of 150 kHz. Add Stealth’s positioning components to build the optimal seating and driving system for each pediatric client.
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:
I like the new Stealth i-Drive specialty control module. It is basically a newer type of electronic interface device that allows you to set up, connect and program specialty drive and switch controls on complex, high-end power wheelchairs for people that lack the ability to drive with a traditional hand control joystick set-up.
With this new technology, the users can access input devices that will allow them to drive and use power seating functions through alternative switch access. We have been using a lot of knee abductor-mounted switches for our ALS [clients] and have had some successful outcomes.
