Charlotte, NC-based Curtiss-Wright Corp announces that it will showcase medical mobility solutions from its PG Drives Technology family at the International Seating Symposium (ISS), March 1-4 in Vancouver, BC.
These solutions, from Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division, include the latest Bluetooth and Joystick Modules for the company’s R-net wheelchair control system, according to a media release from the company.
The Bluetooth Module for iDevices, designed to work with all existing R-net modules, helps enable wheelchair users to control their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using any R-net input device, including hand, finger, and chin-operated joystick modules and the Omni specialty control interface.
It can also be fitted in conjunction with existing R-net Bluetooth modules to allow one system to control iDevices and Android-based smart devices and Windows PCs, per the release.
Also featured at ISS will be the company’s CJSM2 Joystick Module, which incorporates a 3.5-inch, high-resolution LCD screen that mirrors the operating conditions of a wheelchair and features a built-in light sensor.
Other features include paddle switches for on/off, profile, mode, and speed adjustment selections, and the ability to increase the programmability of user controls.
The CJSM2 also uses R-net’s Connect-and-Go capabilities, which means that it can replace existing joystick modules with no system reconfiguration programming required, the release states.
