If you want to use the wheelchair's built-in driving controls, ensure that the wheelchair has an Environmental Control Unit (ECU) or Input/Output module. If you're unsure, your wheelchair vendor can let you know.
If you would like to connect your Tecla Shield to your power wheelchair, you will need a Wheelchair Cable.
Then, depending on where or when you're using your smart device, you might need a mount for your chair or for your phone.
