Project / Status: Complete
A referral for remote control of TV by a client suffering from advanced MS resulted in the development of a cheap Sip and Puff device.
It is acknowledged that for intensive use, commercial products are available, but in some cases these are deemed prohibitively expensive.
Accessibility software is often built in by manufacturers (certainly in iPhones and iPads) but the hardware required to make use of this is not available cheaply and therefore can put a user off experimenting with something that could considerably enhance their quality of life.
A solution utilising Arduino components and 3D printing provides a low cost device which can be easily replicated.
