New Mobility Handles – easy, intuitive attendant control

We’ve just got our hands on an exciting new product from Magic Mobility, and we can’t wait to show you!

The next level in power chair attendant control, the innovative, new Mobility Handles make navigation and control of the wheelchair easier for those guiding it. They have been designed to give power chair users and attendants the confidence to go further in their chair. Engineered to have an instinctual response to the attendant’s movements, the Mobility Handles effortlessly match the user’s speed and change in direction.

A smoother ride for wheelchair users.

In addition to making the journey more comfortable, the Mobility Handles are also a safer option for users and carers. After extensive research and design, the Mobility Handles were trialled in Australia and New Zealand, with excellent response from attendants, therapists and carers.

“I love how easy it makes driving the power chair, automatically matching your pace,” said Jo, a carer who trialled the new technology. “They make steering more accurate, which was particularly noticeable around the house. “They’re also safer, allowing you to stop quickly if you need to.”

Tight turns and movements are a step up from traditional joystick operation. Carers no longer have to tolerate jerky responses and stop-start operation, which can result in injury to the user or damage to the surrounding environment.

Easy, one hand operation.

The Mobility Handles can also be used with one hand, allowing the attendant or carer to walk alongside the user. As they will intuitively match a carer’s movements, the new controllers conserve energy and enable the attendant and power chair user to go further and do more in their day.

Now available from Power Mobility, Mobility Handles can be retrofitted to all power wheelchairs with R-net electronics. If you’re interested in trialling Magic Mobility’s Mobility Handles, contact the friendly team at Power Mobility today. You can find out more about the Mobility Handles here.
