It may be necessary to consider a different type of switch when a button switch proves not to be suitable for the individual.
In this respect there are many specialist switches available, in different shapes and sizes, that require varying amounts of pressure to activate.
Unlike button switches, many specialist switches are specifically designed to be operated by different parts of the body, such as the head, foot, chin or mouth.
This enables switch access for the individual who is unable to use their hand to operate a switch.
As a specialist switch can be operated by ways other than a hand press it is important to identify which means of activation is most suitable for the individual. It may be the case that the switch user tries several switches before this decision is made.
The Chin Switch enables those users with severe physical disabilities to operate a switch through movement of their chin.
It is a small, lightweight device, mounted onto a tube that is worn like a necklace.
If an individual is unable to exert the required amount of pressure to activate a button switch, there are several specialist switches that require little to no pressure at all to activate
