    Description of Idea:
    I am a physiotherapist working with an incredible individual that has no voluntary control of his trunk or extremities and he loves reading. Currently he has a book holder but his caregivers have to turn the pages. I am wondering about the creation of a device that will hold a book AND turn the pages when triggered. This could be a remote bluetooth type trigger which caregivers can trigger from a distance, but ideally it would enable him to independently trigger it through something that reads facial expressions i.e. he can voluntarily stick out his tongue or shut his eyes.

    MMC Entry I.D: 5564


    The current book holder is able to hold a standard book(e.g. hardcover / paperback) but the pages need to be turned manually. This would likely involve at least two parts: a mechanism for holding and automatically turning the page, and a suitable switch / interface for capturing the intent.


    May We Help developed a book holder with an electronic page turner. I don’t have a picture of the device but I have seen one in person. As @MMC_Jake indicated it would need to be paired with a suitable switch/interface.
