Control Systems

 

ICS

Intelligent Control System (ICS) is a new seat control system which together with PG’s R-net control system constitutes a big step forward towards the “thinking wheelchair”. It results in completely new opportunities for far-reaching individualisation of movements and functions.

R-net Omni

The R-Net Omni hosts a large, clear and full colour LCD the screen, which ensures they present the user information in the clearest and most user-friendly way. For example, the content and order of user menus is fully customisable, a feature which ensures the most frequently used functions can be accessed in the most efficient way.

R-net Joystick Module CJSM2

The next-generation R-net Joystick Modules set new standards in user-interfaces – not least from the inclusion of a large, high-resolution and modern LCD screen. Crisp graphics are made as large as possible to reflect the operating condition of the wheelchair.

Infra-Red (IR) communications are included as standard. IR technology is widely used to remotely control household devices such as TVs, DVD players and multi-media systems, as well as some home-automation equipment. Individual IR commands can be learnt from an appliance’s remote handset and stored in the CJSM2, or programmed by the Provider from a library of commonly-used codes.

R-net Joystick Module CJSM2-BT

The next-generation R-net Joystick Modules set new standards in user-interfaces – not least from the inclusion of a large, high-resolution and modern LCD screen. Crisp graphics are made as large as possible to reflect the operating condition of the wheelchair.

Integrated Bluetooth technology is an option, to enable control of computers, Android tablets, iPads, iPhones and other smart devices from a powerchair. Available Bluetooth devices are displayed in a menu on a large, high-resolution screen and joystick commands are used to select and operate the various devices. To switch between the devices, the user simply navigates the menu and selects the device they wish to control. The CJSM2 will seamlessly connect and reconnect between the available devices.

R-net Joystick Module LCD

Color LCD Joystick Modules provide a modern and highly aesthetic user display, which enhances the appearance of the whole powerchair. The size of the graphics on the screen have also been optimized to make them as large as possible to reflect the operating condition of the wheelchair. Any text displays are programmable, meaning the R-net System can be set-up to suit most local market requirements. Furthermore, the positions of the display and the buttons, as well as the operating forces for the buttons, are chosen to make the Joystick Module as user-friendly as possible. The joystick module is fitted as standard with two jack-sockets for external “Buddy” type buttons, as well as an industry-standard charging port.

Two versions are available – with and without lighting control.

Total Head Array

Total Control Head Array System takes adjustability and versatility to the next level. With its telescoping arms and the ability to mount proximity sensors or mechanical switches virtually anywhere, the device can be easily configured to meet any control need. Plus, the Permobil head array’s comfortable, minimal design allows the user to control the chair without being overwhelmed by the equipment.

R-Net Attendant Control

R-Net Dual Attendant control system allows the drive and actuator functions of the power chair to be controlled by an attendant from another location on the power chair. Control is easily exchanged via a push-button, and the attendant can limit the maximum speed and change the seating of the chair.

R-net Compact Chin Joystick

Designed for use with the R-net Compact Joystick Module, this versatile kit provides a discrete, lightweight chin solution.

For maximum flexibility, the two ‘gooseneck’ switches may be fixed to the base of the chin joystick using the plates provided or mounted discretely for optimum positioning. Each switch can be assigned different functions depending on the requirements of the user, e.g. for use as a horn, power, profile or mode button.

The brightly colored ‘softball’ offers a comfortable alternative to the traditional, rigid chin knob.
