All the rear-mounted joysticks I have seen are not well designed. The control window is in front of the joystick, leaving no support for the attendant's hand. They have to navigate while walking and that is difficult to do without support for their hand, much less for their forearm. It requires much more practice than a joystick on the armrest and my occasional helpers are afraid of it! I would have thought that the controls could be programmed in reverse (forward switched to backward, left to right, etc.) to allow the attendant's joystick to be turned around and mounted with the control screen under the hand to steady it. Has anyone been able to do this?
