Power Wheelchairs / Switch-It / Joysticks / Switch-It VersaGuide


Compact proportional control

The VersaGuide is a fully proportional and durable compact joystick that can be mounted virtually anywhere. Its unlimited mounting options are what give the versatile VersaGuide its name. The VersaGuide provides for proportional control (forward, reverse, left, and right). The VersaGuide provides two built-in connections for mode and on/off on the underside of the joystick, called SmartJacks, which are unique to the VersaGuide. The SmartJack sensor input will automatically adapt to both proximity and mechanical switches.

Chin/Mouth Control Mount

Chin/Mouth Control Mount

The BDN3 is a mounting platform for wheelchair controllers. The BDN3 goes around a user's neck and gives them the ability to use their chin, lips, or tongue to control their powered wheelchair. The mounting position is not dependent on the user's position in relation to the wheelchair as it is mounted to the user, but rather moves with the user. The system comes with a comfortable foam neck pad which makes the harness comfortable.


The BDN3 is available in two sizes: standard at 6" wide, and large at 8" wide. The BDN3 is simple to remove for ease of transfers. Therafin and Stealth Bibs also available.

Swing-Away Chin Boom

Swing-Away Chin Boom

The Swing-Away Chin Boom is a long L-shaped rod with a clamp to mount the VersaGuide. The chin boom mounts to the back of the headrest. This setup provides the user with chin or mouth control without wearing a harness, and provides for easy transferring of the user.
