The challenge

Safety smoking aidThis lady is a heavy smoker and due to her severe disability kept constantly dropping her cigarettes and burning the carpet.

The device holds 20 cigarettes, sufficient for her needs between carers. The lever on the extreme left rotates the holder until the next cigarette is automatically in line with the piezo-electric lighter. The lever just left of centre activates the lighter. Ash is retained in a deep tray.

She can now smoke in safety and with much less effort. (Unfortunately we were too late to save the new carpet!)
