Give Me Tools and I Will Do the Job.
A disabled man describes several types of assistive equipment that help in his daily life. He begins with a discussion of a new mouthstick design, which he says is the cornerstone of his functional independence. He proceeds to describe a turntable desk which provides access to surrounding items, a swingaway portable desk which he carries on his wheelchair, a stick-on key-lock which allows one-handed or mouthstick users to depress two or more keys of a keyboard simultaneously, an easy load diskette system, a typewriter-printer with paper loader, a blanket remover and a tongue operated telephone arrangement.
