My Top 5
Switches for People with ALS (pALS)
Features & Usage
Very light touch switch. Works well for weak fingers & very slight movement in other body parts. Velcro to a surface or lightweight mounting arm.
Light touch but provides a little resistance which allows a finger to rest on it without activating it.
Clamping goose neck mounted switch for easy positioning. Especially good for slight head or knee movement.
Single Foot Switch
My favorite and also least expensive foot switch. Provides a little resistance for resting the foot on the switch without activating it.
Pillow Switch (without cushion)
Very versatile especially for head activation. Features a safety pin and Velcro for fastening to pillow, wheelchair headrest, clothes, etc.
