Unlock the Possibilities

It’s hard to live without access to your friends, family and complete strangers doing ridiculous things online, and who would want to? Now you can stay connected to your smartphone* or computer with the R-net Bluetooth iDevice Module and the R-net Bluetooth Mouse Module. The modules allow input device commands, such as joystick movements or switch clicks, to be used to operate an iDevice (iPhone, iPad or iPod), Android device or personal computer. So whether it’s sending an email, using your favorite app, texting a friend, calling for pizza or operating household electronics, you’re in control.

The new Bluetooth iDevice Module allows users to access iOS Switch Control* and VoiceOver accessibility modes (only available in iOS7 or greater). Input commands from a joystick, alternative drive or switch are transferred into iOS actions. In Switch Control, inputs can be assigned to different actions for more personalization. And with each input able to activate up to three iOS functions based on the length of the input (short, medium and long), the Bluetooth iDevice Module is a powerful accessory.

Planning to connect like never before?

The Bluetooth Module can be added to any chair with R-net electronics. If you’re looking to add a Bluetooth iDevice Module to a chair in the field, and it was delivered before November 2014, you’ll need to update the power module to recognize the new bluetooth module. Please download the latest version of PC Programmer from PG Drives and download the updated subset file.

Making a Stand

As we’ve been discussing the benefits of front wheel drive recently, we had an unsolicited story come our way. Joseph Maimone lives in NC and is a published author, radio contributor, and has a following on YouTube. He sustained a spinal cord injury from a skiing accident in 2004 and has been in a wheelchair ever since. This is his story of how standing has improved his health and lifestyle. Thanks to Todd Dewey, ATP with Numotion for connecting us with our friend Joseph to share his story.

Last week we looked a few reasons a front wheel drive (FWD) power wheelchair might be right for you. We discussed how FWD wheel base configuration can increase how close you can get to surfaces for function and drive maneuverability to ease navigation of tight corners. This week we continue our conversation by taking a look at the following reasons FWD might be the right mobility base for you:

Benefits of Front Wheel Drive Part 1

Part 1 in our two part series exploring the potential benefits and uses of front wheel drive power wheelchairs.

We at Permobil have over 50 years of redefining not just ability but also mobility. Today we are focusing on front wheel drive solutions and our story really starts with our founder, Dr. Per Udden who made the first Permobil power wheelchair in the basement of his hospital in Sweden. Dr. Udden believed in a better solution that allowed his clients and patients to get independent mobility, and with this idea in mind he created the first power wheelchair. Early on, Permobil has believed in the benefit of front wheel drive as an ideal platform for indoor and outdoor mobility.
So how do you know if a Front Wheel Drive power wheelchair is right for you?
