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 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 that can be used to enable greater independence at school, work or home.

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.

Manual wheelchair frame materials: 6000 & 7000 series aluminum

Hi again. In our last Balanced Ride blog we discussed the importance of material science in the complex rehab technology industry. Frame material choice in ultra-lightweight manual wheelchairs (ULMWCs) plays a pivotal role for someone searching for a more Balanced Ride. Today we are going to dive a bit deeper how and why aluminum is used when manufacturing ULMWCs. Aluminum is the material used most often, though it is still surprising that it was only 50 years ago that people started to use it in the design and production of ULMWCs. Especially when you consider the fact that wheelchairs or similar devices have been used for over 2000 years.
