A joystick sitting on the armrest of the car door controls the brake and accelerator. To prevent the hand from falling outwards a metal loop sits against the back of the hand and holds the hand against the joystick. The user’s arm is fixed in place with a cradle that sits together with the control device.
Before the user drives the car he folds up the side support of the wheelchair so that it is not in the way of the car’s armrest. He uses the mouth stick to push his arm into place.
A small tube on the control unit is used as a holder for the mouth stick.
