Can I ask if anyone who designs power wheelchairs has managed to tackle the 'joystick' problem? i.e. how dangerous the position of the joystick is as it can be easily knocked thus causing the user to crash into things. I have had several accidents due to the positioning of the joystick, e.g. people around me have caught the joystick on their handbag, or an item of lose clothing or even leaning over me to reach a shelf.

I also find it very difficult to drive backwards in a straight line when coming down a taxi ramp. The joystick control seems to be so sensitive that the slightest movement can send the chair off in the wrong direction.
