Product
The Steady Stylus works for people who have difficulties holding an object like a pen, but who are able to firmly grasp something with their hand. When a customer ordered a set of the original Stylus Socks styli, she send us a note about using the conductive socks on her son's custom T-shaped stick. Since he has additional support needs, he uses a stylus that gives more control over his movements. And once we saw a picture of it, we new we wanted to offer this to people around the world with the same needs. What you get is a handmade, durable, fully conductive T-shaped stylus.

Worldwide service and logistics
We offer our services and ship our products around the world, using a flat rate product and shipping fee for everybody. Fulfillment locations in the United States and Europe take care of fast and economical shipping; we'll pick the best spot depending on your location.

Stylus Socks
All styli and pointers use our in-house engineered Stylus Socks concept; a tip made from highly conductive fabric that is wrapped around a plug on the stylus stick. Compared with rubber or foam alternatives, they have no drag, there's no pressure required and they don't break. Smooth operation is guaranteed on all modern capacitive tablets and smartphones, like the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch iOS devices from Apple, the Android based Galaxy range from Samsung, the Nexus range from Google and Asus, the Xperia range from Sony, the Kindle range from Amazon, etc.

A stylus for every need
In an effort to address all special needs comfort levels when working with capacitive touch screen devices, we listen carefully to client needs and adapt them in our extensive styli portfolio. Don’t find a stylus or pointer for your needs? Contact us for a custom solution!

Cheers, Team ShapeDad


History
It all started when the wife of a quad (quadriplegic) patient ordered a regular Stylus Socks stylus from our Etsy shop. She found out about our conductive socks concept while she was visiting a local Apple store and one of the employees started Googling for a proper solution. Their first approach was to put the conductive sock around the tip of their existing plastic mouth stick. But as you may know, a capacitive touch screen requires some ground (body) contact to make it work. And with a plastic mouth stick, this means that a wire needs to be wrapped around the stick and into the mouth, which is not very convenient.

Then we made a custom solution for them based on two approaches. One with a fully conductive aluminum mouth stick gaining enough electrical ground by itself, and one that uses the iPad's body as an electrical ground so you can use it with an existing mouth stick of any material (even plastic). We shipped it and got positive feedback on both approaches. We tweeted about it and got in contact with people around the globe dealing with ALS or MS and started supporting them. A few weeks later, several of these packages got shipped to the US and AUS. And people using a head pointer got triggered as well, so that's how we started offering the conductive plugs. Just put these around your head pointer's tip and you're ready to go.

Although the item I ordered didn’t work out, I encourage you other buyers to contact the seller. He is very communicative and also makes custom styluses. He helped me with my issue very respectfully. I will will contact seller in the future and order a custom stylus. Thanks a bunch.

I had to most beyond stellar experience with this company. I loved the stylus that I ordered, but sadly broke it within a short time frame due to how spastic my hand is. They built me a brand new custom one which is far more durable without needing me to exchange the broken one. Ivo — the owner — also worked with me how to make my broken stylus functional until my new one came from the factory in Holland. Absolutely amazing stylus, superb customer service, and a truly amazing company. I will be a life long customer and cannot rate them any higher.
