REMOTE OPERATING DEVICE FOR PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED PERSON
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP3831735
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a remote operating device for a physically handicapped person capable of reducing physical and mental burdens on the physically handicapped person.
SOLUTION: A small and light magnet 11 is stuck on the jaw 2 of the physically handicapped person 1. A pattern storing means stores a plurality of patterns of an electrical signal corresponding to movement of the magnet 11. A magnetic sensor 12 detects magnetism of the magnet 11, and outputs the electrical signal varying correspondingly to the movement of the magnet 11. A signal outputting means 13 inputs the electrical signal from the magnetic sensor 12. When the variation of the electrical signal matches with the plurality of patterns stored in the pattern storing means, the signal outputting means 13 outputs a remote control signal corresponding to the pattern. Apparatuses 5 such as a personal home electric appliance, a call bell, and an electrical bed are set to variously operate according to the remote control signal. The physically handicapped person 1 can easily operate the various apparatuses 5 by moving the jaw 2.
