E-fix can be installed on most wheelchairs.

The user's joystick is adapted with a cradle that enables him to steer the wheelchair.

Authors comments
Erik uses e-fix on trips. When he flies he can drive right up to the plane and minimize the risk of damage to the wheelchair.
With e-fix he can even use any taxi at all. The parts fit in the trunk even in small cars.
