    Lap top or tablet

    Im finding it difficult to hold my tablet & wondered what most of you use as not sure what to go for. I so enjoy going on line so i would like something easy to use.

    The MNDA funded a bracket for an ipad for mum. It attached to a bed,wheelchair etc like a vice. If you need one get the order in quickly as it did take a little time.

    Hi Denise;

    There are many holders available for a wheelchair or a table and perhaps free standing. There are companies that help the disabled access technology and I would guess that they would help. Have a look at this old thread and search "holder" etc:-

    http://forum.mndassociation.org/show...ghlight=holder

    You could ask the wheelchair service as well.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Love Terry

    Assistive Technology gave me an Anker which is a small metal book holder which supports my iPad perfectly on a small wheeled table in front of me, it's very solid and does not fall over, the table is one with wheeled legs which I can move around, I think I got it from Argos, best thing I have ever bought as I can set it the height I want, in fact, I am going to get one for the bedroom too

    Hi Denise, how are your hands / fingers? Is it too early to consider an eyegaze type system?
    sorry about the absence of caps in my posts, my shift key is broken.

    Hi Denise;

    Three of the four links work for me. I think it's important to have any keyboard or tablet at the right angle for your hands/fingers.

    My hands and fingers can't straighten or work if that angle is too steep.

    Love Terry

    Most tablets will pair through Bluetooth with a remote keyboard. A device holder secured into a position that gives the user a good view relieves loads on the hands and arms, the keyboard is used on the lap or any convenient position.
