|Title:||Tips On Typing|
|Original caption:||Hints for Parals|
The illustration above shows a patient with sub-normal arms and hands using the electric typewriter donated to the National Patients' Committee by the Woodstock Typewriter Company.
With this electric typewriter it is necessary only to slightly depress the keys after the motor is turned on, the motor furnishing the power for the impression. It is practically the same in operation as the standard typewriter, but enables patients whose hands have been partially paralyzed to type.
You might say this typewriter has an organ touch rather than a piano touch. This is a very real advantage to those with a hand disability.
