20180402 Weekly AT – HandPointer

HandPointer for Tablet or iPad

The iPad has radically changed the AT/AAC fields in recent years, but people that cannot point with a finger cannot access the beautiful interface and computing experience, from instructional materials, to web surfing, email, Facebook, Twitter, and all that able-bodied persons take for granted.

The HandPointer is great for those who find accessing the iPad to be a challenge, but don't want to resort to a more substantial assistive device (such as an iPad VoiceOver Controller or switch interface).

It has a loop fastener strap that secures around the hand and wrist and can be cut to the needed size. The HandPointer can be positioned in many positions with its hook fastening material, and it aligns and holds the stylus so that it is perpendicular to the iPad or tablet’s surface.

Cost: $29.00
