Here is something that should appeal to all iPad owning folk who are stuck in wheel chairs, The Joy Factory have a purpose built support to hold your iPad on your wheel chair.
This simple but well thought out accessory will securely hold your iPad exactly where you want it and can easily be readjusted or simply pushed out of the way when you are through with your iPad. Further, obviously, it means that your iPad is ready for use but is safe and secure and leaves your hands free for moving your wheel chair around, or indeed simply grabbing that cup of coffee that you need to inspire you to write the next email.
The Joy Factory describe it in the following terms:-
Those who use the tablet for long periods of time can now do so with limited fatigue and with better posture. Designed from the suggestions of wheelchair users, Charis Wheelchair Mount’s double-armed design adjusts to a wide variety of angles and can fold away when not in use.
Its design is actually very simple and straight forward, but it is in the material they chose to make it from that makes this special, carbon fibre, which is both light and incredibly strong, so you have almost no risk of it breaking should you crash it into a wall in a moment of inattention.
Here is a short video that shows it in action, which speaks volumes about it…………..
