Ambidextrous delivery. Go from left- to right-handed delivery in seconds. The centrally located handle and screen are reachable and visible from either side.
Automatic braking. Grasp the handle and the arm system automatically releases. We call it capacitive activation, but you’ll just call it effortless.
