Flip over alarm clock – easy to use for the elderly.

I am always on the look out for innovative ideas to help the elderly and discovered the Lexon flip ON/OFF alarm clock.

Awarded the Reddot  design award best of the best 2013 this battery operated alarm clock is simplicity itself. Measuring only 2.5 x 4 inches and lightweight it is also extremely portable. When the alarm sounds the user simply has to turn the whole thing over. It is clearly marked ON one side and OFF the other and is a useful gift for someone who has arthritic fingers and finds small button or switches a fiddle.

The Lexon Flip over alarm clock is available to purchase from Amazon and costs from £26 depending on supplier. Lexon also have a second style that is equally easy to use, you simply press down on the raised part to tilt it off. This is available from Amazon too or alternatively you can visit Lexon directly and see more of their amazing designs. Elderly does not mean dull. this image shows a lexon alarm clock in red.
