ichair-2-custom-2-nonameDynamic Controls is showing off an iPhone/iPod Touch app for those who use a motorized wheelchair that allows them to monitor various aspects of the wheelchair. It connects via BlueTooth and allows monitoring of their chairs information in real time, as well as providing info on speed, compass data. It mounts to the chair via a cradle.

Lee Kwok, a wheel chair user in Christchurch says it will be fantastic to be able to buy an off the shelf product that has so many features for powered wheelchair users. “Having access to mainstream technology via a wheelchair is a huge advantage,” says Lee Kwok.

    Interesting to see what the range was, could you control the chair to come to you maybe?
