A device was made consisting of an aluminium ash tray fitted with a handle and fixed to a large stabilising disc. The ash tray has a springloaded cigarette holder which, when depressed, ejects the butt. The smoke passes via a small drainage chamber, and solid and flexible tubes, to a standard holder mouth-piece.
Supervision of patients when they are smoking is now minimised, making it possible for them to do so much more easily.
