The speaker phone (Doro) sits on a swivel arm. The user presses on the buttons with his knuckles. A piece of plastic is glued to the speaker function button to enlarge it (photo far below).
Now each button on the telephone has also been fitted with a round self-adhesive and transparent plastic disc (not shown in these photos), which makes it easier for the user to press the buttons. The plastic discs are usually used as pads in kitchen drawers.
The most important phone numbers are programmed into the phone. The user also takes advantage of a “Free Directory Assistance” service (see associated tip).
The telephone arm is designed so that it also has room for remote control units (see associated tip).
Enlarging small buttons means a lot to the user and makes it so he can use the buttons. He has this modification of buttons on many appliances.
How to make
Adapted telephone button: take a piece (about 0.5 cm) of catheter tube, glue it to the telephone button and fill it with hot melt adhesive from the glue gun (other adhesive probably works too).
