The 911 Beacon is a two-in-one 60-watt light bulb with a brain-a patented computer chips that, when activated by flipping the switch three times, causes the bulb to flash brightly. When placed in an outside light or a lamp by a window, the flashing light guides emergency professionals like a beacon. Little grasping power reportedly is necessary for using the Maddagrip to open jars and bottles. Applying slight pressure with the palm and then twisting will do the job. A polyurethane foam cushion for non-medical use is available from InTransit Medical Novelties Inc.
