Shifting the car's gears with a mouth stick – a solution for drivers with high spinal cord injuries

Description
Anders uses a mouth stick on a panel with buttons to select the gear, see associated tip.

Authors comments
Initially the user intended to manage the gear panel with his hand, but this did not work because he came in contact with all of the buttons simultaneously. Then he began to use the mouth stick.
