Advice & Tips: This is a bespoke panel made by the wheelchair services engineer to slide next to the joystick control and extend reach to control functions ie speed, tilt, on / off or assistant control.. It has touch sensitive buttons: a blessing and a curse. Sadly this gadget may have come too late to the party.
