I used the reversing camera on the bus yesterday, I had to reverse into the spot for wheelchairs. It was a very tight space and using the camera was very useful. It allowed me to be independent and not have to rely on other people. I felt like I had achieved something major in my life.
I have been also using it to get out of the mobility vans. It makes me safer in my backing of the chair.
Another thing that I have found helpful is the camera being aligned with the side of the armrest and controls. This gave me more room to maneuver when I was getting into position and in tight spots. I do appreciate it being on the right side of my chair because my right side is better than the left for seeing and controlling.
I noticed that when my unit and I were out yesterday catching the ferry to Devonport as well as the bus, my caregivers were helping me get onto the ferry, and with all the difficult ramps and maneuvers that we had to do, the camera tucked in was really helpful.
One more thing to mention is that my family appreciates the camera being moved to the right from the left so they now have the left hand side of my chair free so they can help me without it getting in the way.
Thank you for sorting out all of this for me.
