CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with quadriplegia to control the temperature of an electric blanket. This project was designed to enable the user to regulate the temperature of the blanket within a narrow predetermined range. A commercially-available electric blanket was purchased and a commercial thermostat was added to the blanket's existing controls. The thermostat sits in a separate plastic box with a dial control for the temperature. Using the original transformer box, two of the original blanket settings, high and low, were retained. The thermostat was connected to a stainless steel sensor housed in a pocket under the blanket. The sensor reflects the heat of the blanket. PVC tube covers the wire connecting the sensor to the thermostat. TITLE: Electric Blanket Regulator. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 22 no 2, Winter 2002: p 14-15. PAGES (including cover): 3 2002.
