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.
