Our new Flex Back Tubes offer a safe way to mount sensors close to the body of the user. As the name implies, it bends away when pressed with a strong force, but – in contrast to gooseneck mounts – the 10mm (3/8”) pole springs back into its original position afterwards. Hence the Flex Back Rods are ideal to mount switches in a head array, reducing the risks of injury in case of uncontrolled movements while ensuring a consistently accurate button position.
The Flex Back Tubes can also protect wheelchair control units or joysticks from damage when accidentally bumped into doorframes or furniture. Users will appreciate their furniture being spared, but the bigger benefit is of course avoiding downtimes, and costly repair and maintenance operations.
