Our client uses a powered wheelchair and has limited hand and arm movement. She often finds she cannot reach the buttons in lifts etc.
She tried a telescopic “pen” pointer that could fit into a handbag. It was stiff enough to press a button but too stiff for her to extend and retract.
Tadvic produced a 3 section pointer made from fibreglass tent poles. These remain connected via an elastic cord down the central core and are easily folded to fit in her handbag. When extended they are rigid.
Tadvic is the re-creation of a volunteer organisation formed over 40 years ago. The original organisation is now called Freedom Solutions Australia. There is no connection between the organisations. Tadvic strives to be a low cost provider of quality assistive technology.
