Quarter hour watch

Many people with developmental disorders are not able to use a regular clock satisfactorily. They can often read the clock but are unable to make useful conclusions from that information, primarily about how much time is left until a certain moment. How long must I wait for the bus to come? How long should the pasta boil?

The Quarter Hour Watch is a small, robust and battery–operated aid which the user can always have with him. It has three functions: a Quarter Hour function, Timer function and Time Measuring function. 

Features What's in the box?

Timer - used to count down the time for an ongoing event, just like an egg timer. The user easily sets the time by inserting a picture card for various times: for example teeth brushing for 3 minutes, ironing for 10 minutes, etc. The remaining time is shown in accordance with the same principle as the Quarter Hour Watch function, i.e. in 15–minutes steps. The Timer function can be set from 1 to 120 minutes.

Time Measurement -  used to measure the length of an event and act as a "stopwatch". How long is a lunch? How long does it take to get to the school? etc. By measuring and documenting the time used into a Diary, the user can acquire experience about the duration of activities.
