Pal Pads


Only 34g (1.2 ounces) of force will activate Pal Pad switches. They can be operated with the slightest touch whether from directly above or at a shallow angle. Pal Pads can be plugged into communication aids, battery operated devices or computer interfaces.

Pal Pads are flat switches, approximately 1/4 of a centimetre thick (1/10th "), yet are very rigid and durable. They are designed to be tolerant of rough usage.

The Mini Pal Pad is 5cm x 5cm (2" x 2 "), the Small Pal Pad measures 6cm x 10cm (2.5 x 4") and the Large Pal Pad measures 11.5cm x 15cm (4.5" x 6"), making it one of the largest adaptive switches available. Pal Pads come with a foam rubber backing you can attach to the back to minimize slipping.

Ideal for those users who are distracted by audible clicks or those who require a very low profile switch and can exert very little pressure.

Three sizes and four colours are available: red, yellow, green, and blue.
