Switches - Choosing a Movement


Switches can be operated in different ways;hands, head, foot etc. The switch may need a special mounting system to allow the desired method to be used.

Repeatability - A switch user will have to make a large number of switch presses which may take considerable effort.

Outcome - Make sure that the result of their efforts is worthwhile. Remember that there may be easier ways of doing something rather than struggling to use a switch.

Acceptability - The user's choice is final

Access to other activities - The switch position should not obscure the task to be operated and should not get in the way of daily activities. The user should be able to work the switch and see the activity easily - remember that it can take some time for them to transfer their attention from the switch to the task. If this takes too long they may miss the activity.

Ease of use and setting up - A good switch system should be chosen; one that takes a minimum amount of time and effort to set up, and does not require a degree in engineering.
