One Switch Electric Wheel Chairs

Guided Ability - one-switch wheelchair control."The [Guided Mobility System] is an electrically propelled platform that follows a track carrying an electronic signal, when a single switch is operated. This enables a child or young adult who is unable to use a conventional powered wheelchair to experience independence and develop skills for mobility. The platform can also be used off the track with up to four separate switches.The mobility platform has been developed to provide independent mobility for people who have yet to develop the skills necessary to control the standard powered chairs generally available at the present time."

Put more simply - the chair follows a pre-determined track on the floor when the user presses their single switch. A great idea, that's been in use since in some UK schools since 1990 seemingly. Fun.
