These cameras are bundled with a specially designed interface that allows the user to control the camera and take photos with one or two switches. The user can access both the shutter and zoom functions with the same switch or use two switches, one for each function.

Typically the camera can be attached, with suitable mounting hardware, to the front of the user’s wheelchair. A suitable switch can be plugged in to the interface and positioned to suit the user. If the camera is mounted on a motorised wheelchair, it effectively becomes a mobile tripod.

The GorillaPod

Gorilla Pod review
"I love my digital camera but limited hand strength and dexterity often makes it difficult to take good pictures. As cameras get smaller and smaller they are just hard to hold and push the shutter button without blocking the flash or obscuring the display screen. For years I have often used a very small tripod as a handle to help me hold the camera. The Gorillapod appears to be a great solution to blurred pictures from camera movement. This flexible tripod wraps itself around almost anything to hold a camera steady for great photos. This would be great wrapped around a hand and/or arm to capture great candid photos at a party or wedding.
