How do you get the simplest solution to a problem? Ask a kid!
Ellie Jane’s grandmother had a problem. She couldn’t easily read on her iPhone and iPad and keep them at a comfortable angle. An angle that enabled her to get an optimal view of the screen without giving her a stiff neck or sore wrists.
13 year old Ellie did some research and found that there were stands on the market but that they did not do the job well enough. So she got out her mother’s sewing machine and invented her own! The padpod was born. Her Nana was delighted and now finds her padpod indispensable.
Ellie was soon very busy making padpods because everyone else in the family wanted one too. And then all their friends. Ellie’s triangle shaped bean bag is stable on your lap, lying in bed or placed on a table or desk. The iPad, Kindle or smartphone can be placed on it at any angle that is comfortable. Whether lying on your back or side. It can be used at work or home, in bed, in a plane or a car – anywhere!
Ellie’s Mum, Jenny, is an occupational therapist, so she helped Ellie refine the design of the padpod to the highest standards of comfort and safety. The weight of the iPad, or whatever other item you are using, holds it in place on the padpod naturally. There is no need for straps or adhesives. You can use the padpod to hold anything – your iPad,
Kindle, smartphone, cookbooks in the kitchen or a novel in bed. It even works as a great pillow in the car.
Simple, elegant and effective. Designed for comfort. padpod!
