Abstract : A force-displacement controller knob for use in isometric control devices is provided. A controller knob component is mounted on existing control shafts and the knob itself contains a pair of compressible, resilient washers separated by and contacting a rigid washer in a chamber in the knob so that force applied in any direction on the knob will be transferred to the control shaft in a resistance ratio determined by the compressibility of the resilient washers.
