Wireless Hand-Mounted Communications Device and Wheelchair Switch for a Child


Some children who use wheelchairs and communications devices are unable to keep their arm in a consistent position and therefore cannot consistently access a switch to operate their communication devices or wheelchairs.


Create  a hand mounted, thumb actuated wireless switch with a receiver mounted on a wheelchair which makes contact with the original switch detection device.
