the position into an executable command.

Basic Operation Instructions
Finger Steering Control
NOTE: The Finger Steering Control should only be used in dry conditions
or where sufficient protection from moisture can be maintained. Allow the
control to dry thoroughly if it has been exposed to moisture.
ACTIVE/STANDBY MODES
The Finger Steering Control utilizes two modes—Active and Standby. Active
Mode allows the user to drive the power chair, while Standby Mode does not.
Switching Modes
To switch from Active Mode to Standby Mode, touch the Active/Standby
Switch. See figure 1. When in Standby Mode, the Red Status LED will blink.
To return to Active Mode, touch the Active/Standby Switch for less than 1.5
seconds. When in Active Mode, the Red Status LED will remain constantly
lit. To scroll through and select the available drive programs and actuators in
Active Mode, hold your finger on the Active/Standby Switch.
Active Mode Operation
The Finger Steering Control detects
the position of your finger and
translates that into a proportional
speed. If your finger is in the neutral
position, the power chair will remain
stationary. When you move your
finger to the outer limits of the finger
area, the chair will drive. The further
away your finger is from the neutral
position, the faster the speed. See
figure 2.

the user to be operational.
