Listen to radio and control bed

Opportunity to listen to radio in bed without disturbing a partner; suitable for persons who have compromised hand/arm function.

Description
Headphones are attached to the unit that controls the electric bed. The unit is also fitted with a handle and with a tube with a contact that works by blowing on it. This enables the user to turn the electricity for the bed on and off.

Authors comments
The radio sits under the bed and can be controlled with a timer. The timer turns the radio on each morning at 6:00 a.m. and the user can listen to a program without disturbing his wife.

Build instructions
Mount the headphone earpiece on a piece of Plexiglas and attach the piece of Plexiglas with Velcro straps to the bed's controls.
