Telephone by night table

With a holder for speaker phone by the bed, the telephone is always accessible for persons with impaired arm and/or hand function.

Description
A slide-out arm for the speaker phone and mobile phone sits on a customized night table (see associated tip). They sit in a holder that holds the telephone upright. An elastic band attached to the telephone holds the receiver in place even when making the bed. There is also a wireless transmitter that turns off the power to the TV.
The buttons to the speaker phone are adapted with pieces of plastic glued to them.

The most important phone numbers are programmed into the phone.

A flashlight sits on a holder above the telephone.

Authors comments
Using the slide-out arm the user can pull the telephone to him even when lying in bed. Enlarging small buttons means a lot to the user and makes it so he can use the buttons. He has this adaptation on many appliances.

The flashlight provides light even if there should be a power outage.
