Adapted radio

Simple modifications make a transistor radio manageable for a person with impaired hand function

Description
A metal ring is attached to a transistor radio.

The on/off button is adapted; a small piece of plastic glued to the button enlarges it and makes it easier for the user to handle it unassisted.

The user also glued anti-slip material to the back of the radio so it stays on his lap.

Authors comments
Used it for many years, can easily raise and lower the volume. The radio does not weigh much so it is easy to handle.
