Product features

The Multi Joystick is a joystick module which can be connected directly to the wheelchair electronics to control the wheelchair functions. It is a small proportional joystick, which requires significant less power and movement compared to a normal joystick. It can easily be controlled by any body part, including finger, chin, lip... thanks to its flexibility. It is recommended for people with tetraplegia, neuromuscular diseases (ALS, MS...) and limited muscular force.

  • Fully proportional, with reduced throw (8 mm) and force (ca. 50 gr)
  • Built in a compact and discrete housing, with 2 3.5 mm jacks for switch input
  • Two switches can be linked to the separate interface: (red) on/off power wheelchair - (yellow) mode of the power wheelchair
  • Fully adjustable to individual possibilities and needs with well-thought-out electronics (mini USB connection)
  • Compatible with multiple types of wheelchair electronics
  • Has a LED light on the interface which will start to flash green in case of error or orange in case of active tilt

Add more intelligence

There is a mini USB connection in the interface to connect the Multi Joystick to the mo-vis Configurator and add additional intelligence.

Interesting features are the Road Compensation and the Tilt Setting.

Compatibility

The mo-vis joysticks are available in two versions:

  • R-net version with R-net bus cable
  • Omni version with SUB D9 connector. This can be used to connect the mo-vis joystick directly to the Omni(2) Interface of Curtiss-Wright. But you can also connect the Omni joystick with another interface for compatibility with Dynamic Controls (DX, LiNX) and Curtis Instruments (Q-Logic).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How and where can I mount the Multi Joystick?

    The Multi Joystick can be mounted anywhere on the wheelchair that allows for easy access for the user. The Multi Joystick Package includes a Multi Joystick mounting plate with four screws, a Q2M half clamp with bolt 14 mm and a Q2M Rod D6 50 mm.

    If you want to operate the Multi Joystick with your hand or fingers, you will have to make sure that your arm, wrist and hand are supported and that the joystick is mounted in an optimal position. The placement of the joystick has to be very specific, because the user will normally have limited movement. The joystick can be integrated in a tray or mounted anywhere else for easy access (e.g. below the armrest).

    The Multi Joystick can also be mounted on a swing away arm or harness if you use it as chin, lip or tongue control. It offers best of both worlds:

    • Less force required than standard joysticks, so less risk of repetitive stress disorders
    • More travel & force required than Micro Joystick, so easier to control.

    Go to Mounting Systems for more information about our mounting options.

  • What is the Road Compensation?

    Read Michelle Lange's Blog on the Road Compensation to learn more in our tutorial about the mo-vis joysticks.

  • What is the Tilt Setting?

    Through our mo-vis Configurator Software you can activate the Tilt Setting of the joystick. As soon as your joystick is tilted in an angle of more than 70°, movement of the joystick will not be seen as a driving input anymore. When the joystick is tilted in an angle of less than 60°, the joystick will become active again.

    It makes sense to enable Tilt Setting, when the joystick is mounted on a swing away arm or when it is integrated in a swivel system.

  • Are the joysticks compatible with R-net/DX/LiNX/Q-Logic?

    Yes, read this post on 'Universal' Joysticks to learn more.

  • How should I clean or disinfect the joystick?

    To guarantee a maximum lifetime of the device, the joystick should be cleaned on a regular basis. Gently remove dust and dirt with a damp cloth. Only use non-aggressive disinfectant cleaning agents. Do not immerse it in water or use excessive amounts of liquid. Also, do not apply additional lubricants to the moving parts.

    The ball on top of the joystick can be removed without tools to clean them You may shortly immerse the ball in warm water with a gentle cleaning agent. Let the ball dry before putting it back on.

    If the ball is damaged, worn out or remains dirty, replace it.

    Contact your dealer or mo-vis to order spare parts.

  • There is a problem with my device, what should I do?

    In case of technical problems, contact your dealer. If the dealer is not available, or unknown, please contact us by email support@mo-vis.com or by phone +32 9 335 28 60.

     Always state the device serial number when contacting your dealer or mo-vis. This ensures that you are provided with the correct information.

     mo-vis will ask the dealer to send us a fault log of the device and/or to send the device to us for inspection with an RMA (return merchandise authorization) form.

Total control at your lips

Patients in the later stages of ALS (and other diseases) may become increasingly paralyzed. At that moment, the combination of some mo-vis devices can offer most ALS patients a complete functional solution and opens new perspectives for a better quality of life.
