Turning e-motion wheel motor on and off

The user has learned how to directly push the on/off button for the e-motion wheel motor in order to avoid bringing the remote control

Description
The on/off button is located in the middle of the wheel. The user hooks the thumb around the hub of the wheel and presses the button with the index finger knuckle. To keep her balance she places her other arm around the backrest.

Authors comments
A remote control is available (see photo 3) for e-motion wheels. But this user does not want to bring it along all the time, so she learned how to use the button on the wheel.
