CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a customized adaptation of a bed controller for a person with quadriplegia. Upon receiving a new bed this individual find the new bed controller difficult to use. A controller was adapted from original toggle-style switches and an old control box similar to the device previously used by this individual. The existing cable between the bed and the new controller was built into the controller therefore a new cable was needed for the adapted device. First a cable connection between the bed controls and the junction box on the wall beside the bed was created. Then the new cable was wired into the old controller and a connector was put on the end to plug into the junction box. The adapted controller is easily accessible to the individual and the previous problem of a springing back short cable was removed. The new controller, was recycled by the acquisition of extra controllers, and can be plugged into the junction box and used if needed. TITLE: Bed control. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
