Foot Elevator Controller

Someday, when the designers were in an elevator, a disabled people without upper limbs came in and asked for help. The control panel design of elevator is hard to operate for him. They were aware of people may use their feet to control the elevator! Thus, a foot controller that contains only 4 buttons was design and appended to meet the demand of people who cannot use their hands to operate as he is single in the elevator. This design is friendly to:
1. People who are physical disability.
2. The place that have specific hygiene conditions. Just like the hospital.
3. People who is using both hands to carry something.
