Power Wheelchair Driving Controls

Download as a PDF

Power wheelchairs are controlled by a variety of technologies, from conventional joysticks to head arrays and sip and puff systems. However, little research has been completed on the use or effectiveness of these types of power wheelchair driving controllers, whether conventional or alternative. Several studies have explored novel prototype methods for controlling power wheelchairs, but these studies offer little for clinical application and relevance at this time so have not been included in this chapter.
