SwitchControl Now Comes Standard

SwitchControl (formerly known as the thumb throttle) is now a no charge option included with every SmartDrive. SwitchControl can be used in combination with a PushTracker/E2 or by itself.

 

SwitchControl gives users another customizable option for controlling their SmartDrive. With the push of a button SmartDrive can be engaged for a momentary burst of power or activated in latched mode for consistent power over extended distances. This empowers a more diverse user population to experience SmartDrive with increased confidence and when paired with the PushTracker E2 offers added flexibility, convenience and control options.

SwitchControl is programmable. Gain more control over your wheelchair by setting the speed and mode you prefer.
