No it's not Edna Everidge,it's a company called possum controls that through my OT Nhs are going to fit a switch that I operate by turning my head to the side which in turn operates a mini type processor with icons which will allow me to call and answer the phone ,operate my rise n recline armchair,operate the Tv. turn on a lamp etc.plus a buzzer to call Pat when needed.
No Rory n Roy it doesn't do what your thinking before you ask Regs Bob

Hi Bob
An interesting gadget!
If it doesn't do what Roy and I are thinking , then we might as well wait when 'version 2 ' comes out.
Before I commit to buying one, just one question. With regards to the buzzer for Pat's attention - it is a long way to Thames Ditton, would she be happy with the travelling?

I dunno about that Rory she complained of sore feet and blisters when I gave her permission to visit our daughter in Merstham Surrey and that was only after the first 100 miles. I had to buy her a new pair of plimpsoles.
