Whitney reviews the Panther!
Whitney TX USA
The Ergojoystick has been a game changer for me! I have been a power chair user for the better part of my life. I never realized how uncomfortable a goal post joystick truly is, until I upgraded to something better.
Here are three points I enjoy about the Panther model:
The style of the joystick provides maximum comfort for long rides. (I tested this out by doing over a mile ride)
My hand does not fall off the joystick when driving. I live in the country and frequently travel on dirt roads, with the goal post style my hand would frequently fall off the joystick with every bump my chair hit. With the Ergojoystick, the joystick fits my hand, so I have a smoother ride because I don’t have to frequently stop to reposition my hand.
It is stylish! I have gotten plenty of compliments on it when out and about.
It did take some time for me to get used to driving with it. I felt like I had to train my brain to distribute weight through my palm to steer. I think that’s just because I was used to a certain style of joystick for 20+ years!
I would definitely recommend this joystick for anyone who uses a power chair.
