When operating a wheelchair it is important to companions that the chair is easy to control. Permobil's new Co-pilot 2 for wheelchairs that are operated by companions works quite differently to earlier versions of companion control. The major advantage of the Co-pilot is that it requires hardly any muscle strength and control of the wheelchair is extremely intuitive; as simple as guiding a pushchair. The control system responds immediately when the speed or direction change. The Co-pilot 2 also has the unique function that the companion can control the chair functions and speed.
