Now this is cool, I think I need one of these for sure. I have the EZ Cell Holder that I use with my Android tablet, yes it’s for phones but it works for me. It’s basically two parts velcro and one part handhold, or actually finger hold. This one from LapWorks is called the Handler and it’s also a desk stand. You can use it with your tablet to help you hold it, or put it in the stand on your desk and view that way. I like it, and it’s inexpensive for only $29.99 right now.
This innovative new iPad accessory from LapWorks is actually two separate functioning components that work as one when joined together. When used separately, the hand-held component, called the “Handler,” is suitable for both iPads and any 9.7” to 10.1” tablet. The Handler snaps on to the back of the iPad, and the user simply slides one hand through a Velcro strap. The strap fits over the back of the hand comfortably and provides a safe, secure and effortless way of holding the iPad without having to grip it.
The Handler has a built-in swiveling hub that allows the user to easily rotate the iPad between portrait and landscape views or any position in between. The Velcro strap is adjustable, so one size really does comfortably fit all, and it fits either hand.
When it’s time to set-up the iPad for hands-free viewing, simply insert the Handler onto the desktop component called the “Desk Mount” and voilà: instant desk-stand viewing and operation. Once locked into the Desk Mount, the Handler still rotates in windmill fashion from portrait to landscape. But the Desk Mount also does a few tricks of its own.
First, the Desk Mount reclines from a 90° vertical stance to a 165° reclining position, suitable for direct typing or game play. The reclining mechanism is based on a friction locking system that can support weights in excess of the iPad or any hand pressure the user can apply while typing or inputting. Second, the Desk Mount base swivels 360° for the benefit of screen sharing and optimum viewing angles.
The Handler iPad Strap is the only effortless, stress-free holding system for the mobile iPad user with an adjustable strap and swiveling Desk Mount. It offers great flexibility without stress or strain and eliminates the potential health risks associated with CTD. The Handler iPad Strap allows users to hold their iPad in one hand for long periods of time without feeling any fatigue whatsoever. And the Desk Mount provides reclining and swiveling capabilities equal to any versatile desktop stand.
Persons who have difficulty gripping can benefit from the Handler iPad Strap because the Velcro strap makes using their iPad a non-gripping, stress-free event. Individuals and professionals who use iPads for daily business functions can work effortlessly without experiencing hand fatigue.
