RJ Cooper Assisitve Technology - Switch Switcher

RJ Cooper Assisitve Technology - Switch Switcher



 The problem:




  • The user uses 1-2 switches to control things
  • He/she wants to control 2 different things with
    the same switch(es)
  • Presently, a facilitator must unplug his/her
    switch(es) from one device and plug into another
  • It would be much better if the user could do it by
    him/herself




The Probable Solution


  • The user presses/holds his/her #1 switch for a
    set-able number of seconds to switch between devices
  • The 'outputs' of his/her switch clicks now go to the
    second device
  • Alternatively, if pressing/holding is difficult,
    Switch Switcher can be put into Double-Tap Mode by a
    facilitator, so that double-tapping switch #1 within a
    set-able number of seconds switches between devices.

Switch Switcher uses 2 AA batteries so it's completely
portable.  Batteries should last about a month.
