The Active Controls Chin Control uses the Central Drive mast and socket mounting system to offer quick installation and removal by the caregiver. Available with Switch-It's MicroPilot and MicroGuide and compatible with ASL's mini-proportional joysticks, drivers can operate it with their chin, lip or tongue. The unique mounting system provides proportional driving without head movement.
Seatback-mounted chin controls have a 'diving board' effect on driving, require frequent maitenance to retain drive position, interfere with peripheral vision and are prone to damage during trasnfers and transport. Conversely, this proportional chin control mounting system is fully adjustable, robust, and removable.
An optional FDA approved silicone ball can be used by the tongue and spring-loaded to provide protection for the drive control and driver.
