The DriveStation is an ergonomic handheld proportional device adapted for use as an alternative drive control. The DriveStation takes an existing controller and converts its commands into signals that the wheelchair electronics understand in order to drive the chair or control other chair functions. Four specific seating configuration programs allow for customization to better fit the user's needs.
It is ideal for use by pediatric patients: the DriveStation allows for easy access for clients already accustomed to operating game controllers. The DriveStation allows both proportional and switched driving. The joystick knobs may be used for proportional control while the action and/or directional pad buttons can be used for switched driving control.
Starting from $2745
The action buttons (Triangle, Square, Circle, X) or directional pad can be programmed to operate dedicated seat functions.
Seat function control box from wheelchair manufacturer is required.
Mode and seating functions are accessed through the left and right trigger buttons on the front of the controller. The off button is integrated into the controller (only turns off the controller; does not turn off wheelchair electronics). Built-in mode function can be disabled and an external mode switch used: select programs DS-2 and DS-4.
