Switch-activated CD player

Requested Project

We work with an individual who enjoys listening to music, but finds the control buttons on a CD player difficult to operate due to his disability.  He would like to have a CD player adapted to operate by switch.  He would like to be able to select a CD stored in the player and operate the play/stop button by switch.  He is willing to purchase a new CD player for RCRV to adapt.

Design Notes

Commercially available CD players that would handle multiple disks, many of which had remote control, were surveyed to determine price level and adaptability for this use. Acceptable cost level for the user along with operational preferences were requested from the project requestors.  After some time they stated that they had elected not to pursue the project at this time.

RCRV designer is Russell Schuchmann, and was requested by Options of Linn County/Clayton/Kellner. The project was begun Sep 10, 2005 and completed Mar 20, 2006.
