Adapted phone with storage

Voice-controlled portable telephone that works and is always accessible for a person who uses an electric wheelchair and has impaired hand function

The voice-controlled portable telephone (Siemens) has been adapted as follows:
- key ring
- anti-slip material underneath
- anti-slip material on the most important buttons
The telephone is stored in a specially designed fabric bag conveniently attached to the electric wheelchair.

Authors comments
The user can pick up the telephone by using the key ring. Anti-skid material underneath the telephone makes it possible for him to place it on his thighs in order to press the buttons without it falling down. Having a voice-controlled phone is extremely helpful, according to the user; he presses on a button and uses his voice to control who he is calling.

Build instructions
Some of the most important buttons on the telephone are enlarged using anti-slip material. The user first punches out round pieces of the anti-slip material an ordinary hole punch. He stacks several of these pieces of anti-skid material and glues them together.
