The Platform to Re-deploy a Joystick at Midline

The ReJoy platform offers stable midline positioning of a joystick with a secure, spring loaded drop-in connection. Center mounted drive controls offer better body positioning and alignment directly in the user's line of sight. Center mounting also reduces the likelihood of damage to the drive control from hitting objects, a common cause of costly damage to armrest mounted joysticks.

The ReJoy platform features pressure relieving gel pads that are adjustable by height, width and even pitch. With additional Center Drive System sockets, the same joystick can be driven from the side of the seat, or in the attendant position behind the seat.

The ReJoy allows people to utilize a more natural driving experience on their power wheelchair, similar to the centered drive location of a steering wheel on a car.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is the ReJoy?

The ReJoy is a midline mounting platform with lateral gel pad supports for any power wheelchairs' joystick hand control. The universally adjustable mounting platform is attached to the Active Controls Center Drive System's robust, modular mast. Once the joystick is positioned on the platform and attached to the mast, it can be readily positioned for driving the power wheelchair from any one of three sockets (powered ports) positioned in the front, side or rear of the seat.

Why is the ReJoy better for postural positioning than an armrest-mounted joystick?

The midline position and lateral supports on each side of the joystick allow the user to maintain the prescribed seating and positioning necessary to prevent postural deformations often caused solely by the position of an armrest-mounted joystick.

Why does the ReJoy provide better driving performance than an armrest-mounted joystick?

Because the ReJoy places the joystick directly in line with the user's field of vision, it is easier to operate than trying to drive a vehicle when it's controls are off to one side. In addition, the lateral gel pads support the wrist and heel of the hand so the user's fingers and arms do not get so easily fatigued as they do with a side-mounted joystick.

Which power wheelchairs can be adapted to use a ReJoy mounting platform?

Just about any power wheelchair can have its joystick redeployed to midline driving with the versatile ReJoy. Currently, the most common controls from all the major manufacturers can be repositioned by an authorized Active Controls Provider.

Is a special "expandable" controller required to have multiple driving locations on the power wheelchair?

No, due to the unique, patent-pending, modular mast and socket system any powerbase controller will accommodate up to three drive positions, including one which can be used by an attendant.

Is a ReJoy mounted joystick any easier to use than a conventional joystick for an attendant?

Joysticks in an attendant position are notoriously difficult to use. It is almost impossible to maintain driving control while you are walking and your hands and fingers are unsupported. It is so hard to do that many people just give up after several attempts.

The ReJoy's robust mounting platform with dual hand supports overcomes these problems and makes it possible for most people to operate a joystick while walking behind a power wheelchair.

How do the costs of the ReJoy two socket system with an attendant control position compare to a conventional power wheelchair with drive and attendant controls?

Most Third Party Payers such Private Insurers will not pay the cost of an attendant control and the extra expense required of its "expandable" electronics.

Because the ReJoy does not require "expandable" electronics or a second joystick control, the ReJoy's net cost is less than most conventional attendant controls. The second socket and its bracket for the attendant are non-funded items.

Does Medicare or Private Insurers pay for the ReJoy midline mounting platform and socket system?

The ReJoy components are coded as K0108 and are billable when prescribed by a Physician as a complex rehab solution for users who require its seating and positioning benefits.

Why would someone need a side socket?

To either holster the drive control for transfers or get closer to desks and tables

What is the purpose of the drop-down socket bracket?

Dropping the front socket down facilitates lateral and sliding board transfers. Some stand/pivot clients need it out of the way as well.

Which socket brackets should I order for a steel (Rehab) seat? Wood seat?

The brackets are universal with the exception of the modac attendant bracket. The hardware is different depending on the seat base material.

How can I and how do I adjust the gel pads?

This should only be done by a qualified provider with the advice of a medical professional.

The adjustments are made with a single 3mm allen wrench.

What is the medical justification for a ReJoy and Center Drive System?

There is no specific medical justification for the Rejoy, but there are many circumstances that dictate it being appropriate. ROM, posture, ability to access drive controls, ability to consistently engage drive controls and are among the reasons end users should use the Center Drive System.

Will third party payers ever cover side sockets?

Other than the VA, it is unlikely the funding sources will cover the side socket. Fortunately, the cost is minimal and the end user can invest if they want.
