Users become less dependent on family and professional attendants and enjoy an improved quality of life, enhanced feeling of independence and improved confidence in their ability to go about their daily lives.
The arm is mounted to the side of the seat frame in a way that minimizes effect on overall wheelchair width. It can be mounted on the left side or the right side, depending on the global wheelchair space available. In many situations, it is mounted opposite to the control system side to allow better space movement of the arm. Most of the time, the arm is operated through the same control system that operates the power wheelchair (standard joystick, cephalic\head control, sip and puff etc.) by adding another seating mode option. External controls such as 3 axis joystick, computer interface, mini-joystick and button controls are also available. Power is taken directly from the wheelchair batteries without significantly effecting range.
Each user has their own learning curve depending on the ease with which they adopt new technology and their level of autonomy; it also depends on the time the user spends per day using it and performing daily tasks. The more you use it the more you understand it. Gaining competence can vary from minutes to hours. The question is not if you will be able to accomplish the task, but only how long it will take to master it.
