No more scrambling around near the floor to reach the plug socket for the lamp. The FootSwitch plugs into the mains socket then the lamp (or similar appliance) plugs into that. To turn it on you simply push the sturdy switch with your foot. There's no bending required, so it's ideal for people with reduced mobility. Using the adhesive pads supplied, you can even fix the switch to the wall at hand height. This is perfect for wheelchair users. There's a lengthy 1.6 metre lead so you can choose the easiest location for your home. It features an LED power on indicator so you know it's working.
