Senior Friendly TV Remote

TV remote that won't confuse - may help early Alzheimer's patients
This world isn't just for the tech savvy and the young. In fact, there are probably more elderly people watching tv than young people, and they shouldn't be excluded by confusing tv remote controls.

Senior-friendly, makes tv easy again
The TV Big Button Remote Control for elderly people that makes tv watching easy again. This is a senior friendly TV remote control, it eliminates the confusing unnecessary buttons from the regular remote control and makes the buttons bigger to help people with low vision, hand tremors, MS and Cerebral Palsy - you probably won't have to put your glasses on to see the buttons on this TV Big Button Remote Control either. People with Cerebral Palsy have one or more tight muscle groups which limit their movements and can have trouble moving fingers - the simpler senior friendly TV remote control for elderly people can make the remote easier to use for people with other medical medical problems too, like arthritis.

Use a single remote - simplify your life
This senior friendly tv remote allows you to use a single remote for your TV, cable, satellite or DTV box. Multiple setup options makes it virtually universal. Simplify your TV viewing - simplify your life. Kid and babysitter friendly.

Remote too technical, too difficult to understand?
Do elderly members of your family have difficulty watching TV because their remote is too technical for them to understand? Do you get calls in the evening to come fix the TV? Does your elderly relative with memory problems or early Alzheimer's press the wrong button and end up stuck in some weird tv mode and can't get out? The easy TV Big Button Remote for elderly people has a programming lock that prevents the accidental change of stored programs. The case also slides shut over buttons to help keep curious fingers out. Finally, a TV remote that allows the senior/elderly members of the family with memory issues or early Alzheimer's live independently, making them and you feel better knowing that they can watch TV themselves without requiring assistance.

Can this be used for NETFLIX?
NO. This simple tv remote is designed to be easy to use - more features and functions will make it more complicated like a regular remote, defeating its purpose for simplicity. It does NOT have the required buttons to use on-demand Netflix.

Gift for grandparents
This simple tv remote is the perfect gift for grandparents. It makes watching tv easier for those older folks that prefer simplicity.

Digital TV
A question we are frequently asked is whether the this remote works with
DIGITAL TV. The manufacturer tells us yes, it does. It works whether coming in directly to the TV, or through a TV transponder.

Flipper is 7.5" x 2.5" x 1.0"
MAIN BUTTONS are about .6" x .75"

Macular Degeneration Recommendation: If purchasing for someone with severe Macular Degeneration, I recommend drawing out the dimensions of the main buttons to be sure they are adequate in size for someone with very low vision. The programming buttons are smaller and would probably need to be programmed by someone with normal vision.

One year warranty through manufacturer

IMPORTANT NOTE: The FLIPPER is designed for simplicity, it is NOT designed to work with Home Theater Systems. For example, if you are using a Bose or other home theater system product for the sound to go through, it would not work. NO GUIDE BUTTON. It will not work the DVR

This easy remote supports all major devices including:
  • TVs: Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, Dynex, Vizio & more...
  • Cable / SAT: Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon, Cox, Direct TV, Dish, Motorola, Cisco and more
  • Flipper will operate a tv that uses an antenna
IMPORTANT NOTE: Even though the manufacturer indicates that this remote supports DISH, we do NOT recommend purchasing this remote for DISH TV. It is much more complicated to set up and there are known issues with DISH. Revised 3/06/13

Flipper TV Remote Control Works in Ontario, Can August 4, 2014
Reviewer: Gail Myhr from Montreal West, QC Canada  
It could be faster at changing channels (it is rather slow at sending the next/prev channel signal to the cable box) but ît certainly succeeds in simplifying the interfaçe. I'd give it an 8 out of 10 and would recommend it to remote challenged tv watchers.

Locking the flipper May 28, 2014
Reviewer: adele bird from Calgary, AB Canada  
I love this remote. It is very easy to use. My only issue is not being able to lock your chosen preset channels. However, saying that, my mother has now been using it for a week and she's as happy as a clam! So overall, thank you Flipper!

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Camillus, NY United States  
It was very easy to set the remote to the TV and the set top box.  Once set up, it was very easy for my 90 year Dad to see the big buttons.
