Omnilink

Omnilink

To be optimal, support needs to be right where you need it. AEL’s new Omnilink lateral bracket system offers maximum adjustability and flexibility to put pads at the wheelchair user’s trunk or hips, just where they’re needed. Serrated links enable Omnilink to hold tightly to prevent components from slipping. A Dual Swing-Away style allows for both front and rear release, to make it easy for caregivers to help with transfers out of the wheelchair, or to access IV lines, dialysis ports or feeding tubes.

Mount

Mountn Mover

  • Personal electronics are only useful if they are accessible — which is why Mount’n Mover is independently movable by the user with no tools required.
  • The system can be easily adjusted due to changes in position or fatigue levels so tablets, speech devices, phones, cameras, and ADL items such as trays stay within reach, but move out of the way for transfers.

PowerTech Sigma

PowerTech Sigma

Wheelchair users can power their ventilators, as well as phones and communications devices, via their wheelchair’s batteries by using the PowerTech Sigma. The unit includes two USB ports for easy charging of phones and tablets; a diagnostic LED light signals when the unit is ready to use. A two-wire installation of this 4.25" long, 5.5" wide and 1.75" tall sealed unit makes it friendly for technicians as well.

    Micro Extremity Control

    Micro Extremity Control

    This fully proportional joystick has a built-in mode change function and requires just 18 grams of force to deflect. Pushing directly down from neutral will reset the chair to the next mode that is turned on. A new feature: Changing the slide switch on the interface will allow the client to reset the reverse direction. This will benefit those who, due to weakness, don’t have another switch site available or can’t remove their hands from the joystick.

    Switch-It

    Touch Drive 2

    Touch Drive 2

    This “next generation” of Touch Drive is fully proportional and uses cell-phone touchscreen technology. Touch Drive 2 responds to the client’s touch rather than pressure — making the drive accessible even to users with significant weakness. The Touch Drive’s neutral settings can be set at “absolute” (touch) or “relative” (drag). A larger pad size is available for clients with gross movements.

    R-net CJSM2

    R-net CJSM2

    Designed to be easy to use, the new CJSM2 features a large (3.5"), high-resolution and modern LCD screen with large, crisp graphics.

      FreeWheel

      FreeWheel Manual Adaptor

      Manual Adaptor

      The popular FreeWheel attachment is now compatible with folding-frame wheelchairs thanks to a new adaptor that attaches to the chair’s side tubing. The FreeWheel then clamps to a hitch at the end of the adaptor and lifts the chair’s casters off the ground, thereby turning a manual chair, rigid or folding, into a three-wheeled vehicle better able to navigate grass, dirt trails and other rougher terrains. The adaptor is made to be easily removable.
