NEW CONTROL TECHNIQUES FOR WHEELCHAIR MOBILITY.

Abstract

Imoproved wheelchair mobility could be an important factor in realizing increased independence for persons unable to walk. Motorized wheelchairs have minimized the physical strain of wheelchair propulsion, yet in many instances they do not provide adequate input control devices for certain disabled persons. Some of the conventional powered-wheelchair control comcepts that are commercially available are described. Three new types of wheelchair controller under development and results of their preliminary clinical evaluation are described.
