When a standard joystick isn't enough: the Heavy Duty Joystick
by Guest Blogger Michelle L. Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Some wheelchair users exert significant forces against the joystick handle. This can lead to damage within the joystick housing itself and result in the joystick no longer working. Heavy Duty Joysticks are designed to withstand more force with reduced chance of breakage.
Many wheelchair users of all ages have relentless muscle spasms due to involuntary muscle movements. A reinforced and enlarged proportional joystick, combined with a multi-functional switch, allows more controlled abilities.
