This relatively inexpensive device has been helpful not only for wheelchair-bound patients, such as individuals with spinal cord injuries, but also for other persons with minimal motor strength and control. In this case study, a patient with no control over conventional light fixtures could use the touch-sensitive relay and control all light fixtures.
