The telephone sits in a holder which in turn sits in the wheelchair’s chin controller attachment. The mobile phone holder has an attachment for a pen. The pen attachment is a spiral that is actually intended for a chest pocket. Use a shortened pencil with eraser to avoid slipping on the keys. The holder is the Universal Mobile Phone Holder from Clas Ohlson. The solution works for both mobile phones and cordless phones.
The distance from the mouth must be exactly right. It is also important to be able to easily remove the entire stand (e.g., it could easily hit the user in the face when riding in a car). The ability to make calls and write text messages without assistance provides security if the user is left alone for a while, such as when the assistant is shopping. With a little practice this method can be just as fast as using fingers. It’s important not to drop the pencil. Enter phone numbers. (With voice-controlled home phone you still have to press a button.) Going cordless means tremendous freedom.
