Standard features include a solid contoured back with high-density foam and a Cordura-Lycra cover, full-length muti-mount back rails, a flat solid seat pan for ease in cushion installation or change, a Rock-n-Lock Akton Gel headrest with a Cordura-Lycra cover, hardware
---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a powered wheelchair contol system operated by a tongue switch in dental retainer for individuals with upper and lower extremity, mobility or neurological disabilities or quadriplegia to navigate a powered wheelchair. The newest version of the Tongue Drive System uses a dental retainer with sensors to help control the system. The embedded sensors within the retainer track the movements of a small magnet attached to the tongue. The wirele
The Triswitch, in conjunction with three single-switch actuators, is used for mode selection and oepration of a Multimode Interface. Two of the switch actuators provide left and right actuator commands, while the third switch provides both forward and reverse commands. The display incorporates forward and reverse directional lights with corresponding arrows to provide a visual indication of forward/reverse switch selection. Five additional mode display light are provided to indicate when the Mul
The Unbreakable Cupholder Vertical Mount is designed for those individuals with lower extremity and neurological disabilities to help them by keeping their drinks more accessible. Securely attaches to vertical tubing on bedrails, wheelchairs, walkers, rollators. Durable fabric will not break.
Electrical control, designed for LaBac Systems recline systems allows speed of recline unit to vary from full speed to 50% speed. Maintains full torque at low speeds to accommodate heavier users. Speed control module has complete attendant switches plus a receptacle to plug in user control switch. 2 speed control has speed set at either 100% or 50%.
A remote display used in conjuction with a Multimode interface to indicate when the system is in standby, or in one of four oeprating modes. The display is mounted on a flexible gooseneck to position the display for optimum viewing, and to help protect the display from impact damage. The gooseneck is fitted to a mounting tube for attachment to an armrest using a standard hand-control clamp.
Viamobil is an attendant operated wheelchair brake and power assist designed for use by caregivers of individuals with mobility or severe hhysical disabilities or spinal cord injury. This pushing and braking aid is used exclusively by the person escorting the occupant of the wheelchair. It assists the caregiver to push and brake the wheelchair, and can overcome slopes of up to 18 percent. The unit is attached to the bracket on the wheelchair. The caregiver presses the drive lever to commence dri
CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To protect powered wheelchair controls from rain. A sleve was fashioned from clear plastic that slides over the wheelchair joystick controller, protecting the buttons an gauges and most of the joystick. A fole in the sleeve provides access to the joystic to enable the chair to be operated. TITLE: Bathroom Assistance. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 26, Number 2, July 2006: p. 12-13. PAGES: 3 (including cover).
---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of an adaptive, sensor-laden garment to assist people with severely limited mobility control assistive devices. Developed at the University of Pisa, a sensor-laden garment is printed with 52 flexible piezoresistive sensors. The sensors are made of electroactive polymers that change voltage depending on the angle at which they are stretched. A specialized statistical algorithm analyzes the signals record from each sensor to detect the speci
DO IT YOURSELF ENTRYPURPOSE: To enable individuals who use scooters or wheelchairs to operate a commercial powered sweeper. This accommodation required design and development of a custom hitch system with a pin release linkage to which the battery-powered sweeper could be attached, enabling the scooter user to perform the job of vacuuming the halls at his place of employment It was also necessary to upgrade the scooter/wheelchair batteries to accommodate the increased load. This project used sta
Wheels! is a video game designed for use by children with cognitive, sensory, or motor disabilities. This game can be played as a game or it can be used to teach wheelchair control skills. This three-dimensional video game has players fight evil clowns and mad robots with pie guns that "cream" the monsters with lemon meringue pies; the monsters fight back with pie guns that fire blueberry pies. The game uses easy-to-follow mazes set in a familiar school setting with familiar objects. Each maze o
