Our client has cerebral palsy. She sometimes has trouble sleeping and is soothed by playing a CD. Her mother bought her a new CD player.

Tadvic was asked to provide a large wall mounted button so our client could start a CD playing in the dark. It was confirmed that the CD player automatically plays a pre-loaded CD when powered on.

Tadvic took a commercial Arlec controlled power outlet with wireless remote control (under $20) and built a cradle to hold the remote and operate it by large overlayed buttons.

The Big Remote

For the technical minded. The CD player came with an infrared remote control, however this type requires the remote to be pointed at the device with an uninterrupted line of sight – which could not be achieved with a wall mounted remote. The wireless remote is not dependent on line of sight and can work through and around obstacles.
