It is always exciting when a new innovation comes to the mobility market place, and that is exactly what Electric Mobility have brought us with the JoyBar Controller. This is a new approach to powerchair control, offering the user a choice to use what may be more familiar handlebar style controls similar to those they may have used on a mobility scooter. The JoyBar sits in a front drive socket, allowing the user of the chair to steer directly with the handlebars as they would a scooter. This can offer the feeling of greater control than a more traditional small joystick that is not centrally mounted, but placed at the end of the powerchairs armrests. The JoyBar has familiar Wig-Wag speed controls, along with separate buttons that can be used to set the minimum and maximum speed range. A side storage socket, fitted to the side of either armrest as required, allows the JoyBar to be stored out of the way when transferring to and from your chair. This an "un-powered" socket as standard. However, you may wish to elect to have an additional "drive" socket fitted to the side, to enable you to come up close to tables without a centrally mounted controller getting in the way. Simply lift the JoyBar out of the front socket and into the side socket, allowing you to drive unimpeded up to the table. There is also the option to have an additional or alternative drive socket mounted to the the rear of the chair. This allows the chair to become an attendant controlled chair in seconds, simply by moving the JoyBar to the rear socket. A feature many people may find useful. Currently the JoyBar is only compatible with the Rascal P327 and P327 XL powerchair, btu will soon be added to other models in the range. Please below for full specifications for both powerchair models. The new Rascal P327 powerchair from Electric Mobility offers supreme levels of comfort to the larger powerchair user. It has powerful 50 a/h batteries and a strong motor that will allow a user of 21 1/2 stone / 136 kg to journey up to 20 miles between charges. There is also the option to have a heavy duty version, the Rascal P327 LX. The larger LX version has a wider seat and more robust framework. This allows a user up to 32 stone to experience the freedom and independence of powerchair ownership. The seat is extremely comfortable, with an adjustable back and armrests. The large 12" central drive wheels have pneumatic tyres. When combined with the coil sprung suspension system this should ensure a very smooth ride. The seat has four fixing points making it feel much more stable than many powerchairs you may have tried before. The simple to use one touch controller is adjustable and can be swung out of the way for your convenience. Front and rear castors offer stability and there is a lap belt built in for your safety.

All of our major products are available with an "Accompanied Delivery". This means that your new mobility product will be delivered to your door and assembled. The delivery person will go through the operations of the mobility product and show you how to use it, store it and even to charge it when required. Our staff will ensure that you are entirely comfortable with your mobility product before they leave and they will even take the packaging away with them! The cost for this service is £95.00 (This service is only available to Mainland UK addresses)
If you are happy with your choice of mobility product and don't feel that you need someone to go through it all with you, you can opt for a "standard delivery". With the standard delivery option, included in the price you will still have the mobility product delivered to your door but it will be sent by one of our professional carriers. You will need to be able to un-box the product yourself and dispose of the packaging. The majority of our power products arrive on a pallet, so you will have to dispose of that as well. Don't forget, we are always available on the telephone to help if you get stuck!
