The three function Flipper Remote controls the TV and cable or satellite set top box, allowing seniors to turn their TV and cable box on and off at the same time with the press of just a single button. The remote’s channel buttons function with the cable box, giving users the ability to easily change channels, while the volume control continues to adjust the levels on the actual TV set.
In addition, the Flipper Remote offers a proprietary “Favorite Channel” option that allows users to program the remote to access up to 25 different channels automatically, helping seniors avoid frustration and eliminating the need to flip around to find desired channels.
“On average, people over the age of 65 watch more than 200 hours of television each month,” said Pitkow. “TV is an important link to the outside world for millions of seniors. Flipper giant remote gives people improved control over their television, making it easier for them to operate and find the programming they like.”
