The challenge

Phone-dialling aid 1A mentally and physically disabled young man, living in a specially-adapted bungalow with 24 hour supervision, needed a means of contacting his mother by phone.

A plastic cover is now fitted to his phone. It has a protrusion on the underside that activates the memory button in which his mother’s telephone number is stored. A specially adapted cradle (made from a plastic drinks bottle) allows the young man to nestle the phone back on its rest after use.

He can now phone his mother by simply applying pressure to the plastic cover and return the phone more easily to its cradle.
