The Handsfree Telephone

Originator....... Tom Jeary


THE PROBLEM:   To allow a bed-ridden patient ,too weak to hold a phone, to turn it on, punch the required number (in most cases "0" to reach the hospital switchboard,where the operator would dial out or connect to another room ) and then swing the phone to their ear.

THE SOLUTION:   See the photos above. The unit allowed an otherwise lonely nursing home patient access to  patients in other rooms and her friends and relatives in the outside world.
