The HMC mini joystick is very mini: see http://www.hmc-products.com/en/Catalog/INPUTDEVICES/InputDevices-DXcompatible.html. I've used the USB versions and they are very precise and light touch.
It's listed as a DX part on their web site - see 'DX-RJM-MINI Mini Joystick' on http://www.dynamiccontrols.com/dealers/products/dx2 so Dynamic here in the UK may stock it.
Otherwise I think Smile Rehab sell them in the UK if you can't get it direct from HMC.

Subject: Low Profile Proportional Joystick
Does anyone know of a low profile proportional joystick that can be used for driving compatible with a Dynamic control system?
I'm looking for a low profile as the user drives with a tray and it needs to be positioned midline with the tray in place. The standard joysticks are too high and there is limited space with a cut out in the tray.
Something like the Mini Joystick switch (http://www.inclusive.co.uk/mini-joystick-with-push-p5209) but as a proportional joystick would be suitable.
