Ian Ruder of New Mobility has come up with a nifty way to help him type on his computer and his iPad. He has modified a typing aid commonly used by someone with limited hand dexterity. Ian added a stylus to the end for better precision when typing on keyboards and touch screens. Read Ian’s story in New Mobility Magazine and watch the video below.
Ian and I are both quadriplegics, which means all four of our limbs are affected by our spinal cord injury. Devices like these help us to maintain our independence without putting extra strain on our arms and hands. I have not used this style of typing aid, but occasionally use a stylus that’s on the tip of a pen.
Let me know what other typing tools you use? Do you have other devices you use for daily tasks?
