MicroPilot

The Mini-Proportional Joystick with pure force operation

The MicroPilot is a proportional drive power wheelchair control. The device gives the user the ability to operate their power wheelchair with 360° of control as well as the full range of the wheelchair's drive parameters (speed, acceleration, etc.). Force-based technology enables users with minimal strength and without range of motion to drive their power wheelchair. Sensitivity adjustments allow control to be fine-tuned to each individual. Metal construction offers a significant durability advantage.

The MicroPilot works in a plug-and-play fashion and is compatible with most manufacturers' electronics. The MicroPilot makes use of force-based technology: the harder you push, the faster the chair will move. The sensitivity is adjustable by turning a potentiometer with a small screwdriver. Turn to the right for less sensitivity. Settings are between 10 and 50 grams.
