ALS asstistive technologies.

I have a new assistive product. It controls the TV, satellite receiver, DVD player, VHS player, our sound system, lights and the bed. It can easily be programmed for anything that has a remote control. It is small and mounts on my wheelchair. It has a numbered pad that is 3 across and 6 down. There are 5 levels.

I hit the button once and it starts scrolling down, I hit the button again and it starts scrolling over. I hit the btton again and it selects the function the LED Light is on. If you can still use your fingers you can use the keypad on the device.

It works wonderfully.

    would this work for changing channels on the tv? my friend needs this i think.
    Also, she is on an AVAP at night. sometimes in the day. but is there anything to help that she doesn't have to have her mouth covered so she can talk? even would oxygen help a bit... since she can take little breaths? thanks for your help.
