Control Problems on  Invare G90A Joystick

This weekend has been good but also frustrating because from yesterday afternoon my powerchair has been out of action. The chair is an Invacare TDXSP2 NB (Narrow Base) chair. 

I’ve contacted the technician and am hoping he can help. After 2 years 5 months with the chair, I love it. Except now I can’t use it. 

I made this video to illustrate what’s wrong.The control is a G90A joystick. 

 ​

This is the first control I’ve had on the chair and it is controlled by others much of the time because I don’t have much strength in my hands arms and fingers. I’m looking at alternate controls but what’s going on with it  is still annoying.

Hi, I'm Katherine! I'm 36 years old and I've loved the written word all my life. I decided to create a dedicated book blog to share my NetGalley reviews with the world. I read anything that interests me. One of my favourite genres is fiction, although I also love true love stories and non-fiction. Fantasy and scifi are also genres that I choose when reading. In fact, I have been a complete Trekkie since I was 11 years old, I don't let anything spoil my joy of reading, and despite living with the disabilities of cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus that I was born with, I always find adaptive ways to allow me to enjoy my books. I absolutely love my Kindle reading app on my iPad and iPhone! When I am not listening to a Kindle e-book, I can be found writing my own books and I hope to one day be a published author. One of my other talents is that I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I have a weakness for marshmallows, and a love of cats and horses.
