Your smart phone is ringing, you’ve been waiting for an important call but you can’t seem to find your handset. You start searching for it—in your handbag, around the house, did you leave it in the wardrobe?—only to have the caller hang up before you even swipe the screen, let alone have a chance to say ‘hello’. It’s a scenario we can all relate to. And for those whose movement has become affected by MND the challenge of answering the phone can become an immensely frustrating experience. Especially when waiting for medical updates and information or when you miss calls from loved ones. That’s why we recommend extending the ring time on your smartphone, so you have a lot more time to answer.
