The Cool Cube™ central hub automatically senses the type of switch you have engaged, so there is no confusing setup. In addition, it is compatible with all switch alternatives currently available on the market. Users can elect to utilize the Pro Spot™ proportional switches that come with the system, or can opt for any combination of switches with which they may already be comfortable. The Cool Cube™ central hub can be ordered individually or as a system with either four or five Pro Spot™ proportional switches.
Pro Spot™ proportional switches offer the full and continuous range of speed and turn speed for superior drivability. Once light contact (proximity) is made with the Pro Spot™ switch, the power wheelchair will begin to move at roughly 40% of full speed. With continued pressure (proportionality), the power wheelchair will increase to 100% of programmed speed. This represents a dramatic improvement over current proximity or mechanical switches, which deliver only two options: full on or full off.
Pro Spot™ proportional switches offer a wide variety of switch mounting positions. Head, leg, tray, and hand positions can be easily accommodated.
Users can elect to activate the Pro Spot™ auditory feedback option. Each port of the Cool Cube™ central hub emits a different audible tone to provide the user with an auditory signal that will coincide with the selected proportional switch. The tone has three settings: off, soft, or loud.
