The Signal Glove


Originator.......Carol Schmidt

E-mail........TYRANT@hotmail.com


THE PROBLEM:  This Boccia Ball player, with very limited motion and no verbal communication, needed to indicate, to the person assisting her, her wish to raise or lower the ramp (for speed) and aim the ramp (for direction)

 THE SOLUTION:  This very unique glove has colour coded finger stripes that correspond to the colours on four ramp height settings ( see boccia ramp page of workshopsolutions.com) and a set of arrows to indicate the direction change desired. The player ,with very little hand movement, can touch the desired symbol. With a little creative thinking this method can be adapted to many different sports and activities.
