Bed or chair control switches

Clients with restricted finger movement or arthritis often have trouble operating the small ‘blister’ switches on bed controls. The solution is to clamp on a framework carrying extended rockers with plastic buttons (B&Q drawer stops) that bear on the blisters. The rockers are made of polycarbonate, and are usually transparent to enable any icons on the control unit to be seen.  They can also be colour-coded.

The same idea has been extended to the controls for a riser-recliner chair.

Clients find these much easier to operate as little or no manual dexterity is required.
