Overview for The Easy Control is a wearable device to help the patients by large to have control over home /room appliances, whose scope can be increased and calibrated.

The Easy Control is a Wearable that is synchronized with a UI , i.e just a display interface on a smart phone screen or laptop screen or any other min LCD screen. The Easy Control is a neck wearable .Easy Control is a one in all remote and control that serves the patient, it is operated by neck movements (intended neck movements), precisely calibrated by fuzzy sets. It has 8 active movement, hence 8 active controls. The Easy Control can control the Light bulb on/off , A/C on/off and temperature control, T V on/off and channel as well as volume control. It could also be calibrated to control any Robotic arm that is in service to feed the patient and also any scratch ( itch reliever) robot. It connects and interacts with the appliances via a Wifi network, basically an IoT system where in the patient's room or house appliances have to be modified a little bit, with a Wi-fi receiver and a simple relay at the switch, that's all. The LCD just displays which appliance/device Easy Control is connected to and what action is being done. This helps the patient to see into the LCD and know what is being controlled and understand how to control it .The control can be shifted from one appliance to another by just side-way neck bending, very similar to a joystick maneuvering. This could also be interfaced with a electronic wheelchair, and make it controllable, rather than having continuous eye controlled chairs and fatigue the eye. The microphone is also present that serves as an additional control, if needed. This then would be breathe controlled. There is a possibility and scope for  Easy Control to have a DATA base of contacts, that it could connect a phone call with by receiving a voice command via the wearable, this feature is in case of emergency or a call for extra assistance. Summary: The Easy Control is a simple neck wearable that can potential control anything (devices, Light switches, Assistance appliances etc etc.), by simple connect and calibration. This design aims at making the lives of these patients very simple at day to day and all day activities. This design is cheap and very ergonometric.  And it's not a burden but a easy wearable.
