Connecting to your devices
Frontier V6 AT user Gary knows how important staying connected can be when you’re out in your powerchair. He learnt this first hand when he got stuck in a swamp in Georgia, and had to call the fire department to come and help him out.
Staying connected can be made so much easier with the right technology and accessories.
This includes Bluetooth connection to control your mobile device via your joystick, accessory chargers and mounts to keep them easily accessible.
The R-net Bluetooth module allows wheelchair users to control a Bluetooth enabled device, such as a smartphone or tablet. When connected, these devices can be controlled through a joystick or via a specialty input device connected to the R-net Omni.
In addition to being able to control your Bluetooth device via your controls, you can also keep them easily accessible and in eyesight with a RAM Mount system. There are seven RAM Mounting systems available, including a tablet holder, mobile phone holder, swing away tablet holder, action camera holder and swing away camera mount.
These RAM Mounts can be connected to nearly anywhere on your powerchair, so you can nominate a spot that’s easily accessible but also out of the way.
You can also ensure that your devices never run out of battery with the two available accessory chargers. The first can charge up to three external devices from your wheelchair, with one 12v device port, and two 5v USB ports. The second has two 5v USB ports for charging external devices via USB chord.
The accessory chargers can be fitted to all Magic Mobility powerchairs that use the R-Net system. They are usually mounted on the same side as the joystick, fitted beneath the armrest unless otherwise requested. Please contact your local dealer to discuss fitting options.
