The Alpha Communications® Twitch Switch specialty call cord device is used primarily with patients or residents that are unable to use their hands, body or head to place a call, using a conventional type call cord. The Twitch Switch can be used with a variety of nurse-call patient stations, utilizing a standard 1/4" phono plug type jack.
The Twitch Switch is activated by small muscle movement, such as wrinkling the forehead or raising an eyebrow. It can be easily adjusted to increase or decrease the amount of muscle movement needed to activate it. The Twitch Switch operates in three modes; latching, momentary and timed. Use the latching mode when operating a device that needs to remain on until the user wants to turn it off, the momentary mode when operating a toy, computer or communication device and the timed mode when operating a device that you want to stay on for a pre-set period of time (adjustable from 2 to 40 seconds).
The Twitch Switch is affixed to the head by inexpensive medical tape (provided by others).
