Assessing an end user for power mobility can be an intimidating task. Decisions that are made will have an impact on the individual’s quality life, functional mobility, physical wellbeing, and social interactions. When the end user is not able to utilize a standard joystick, then the task can become even more intimidating. There are many considerations and factors including driving/input method, mounting of driver controls, postural control, power positioning, programming, and environmental access/control. This workshop will review many of the considerations that must be examined when recommending alternative controls. Case specific examples will be utilized to elucidate the often-delicate interplay between alternative control access and complex seating system needs.
