Australian disability equipment specialists Technical Solutions have developed a remote control which enables a person with no hand function to control Apple’s iPod. “The SwitchPod plugs into the remote control socket, and using a single switch suited to the individual, all remote control functions are available. For a person with high level quadriplegia, a switch mounted on the wheelchair headrest may be suitable.” Pricing and availability was not available at post time.
