    My son is a quadriplegic and he uses these heavily on his iPad. It is built extremely well. The only downfall is the plastic mouth piece needs to be taken off and cleaned often. I wish it came with extra pieces.

    The item I was shopping for, I found here at the very best price I could find online. My order was processed quickly, the shipping was a fair price, and the order arrived in a very timely manner. Great quality product, excellent transaction altogether!

    However, I purchased the wrong item for my husband, as a result - I had to return it. After notifying the shop owner right away, he was super helpful and allowed me to send the item back for a full refund. Easy-peazy... and without any hassle at all. Of course, I shipped the item back in the original packaging and without delay.

    I appreciate the kindness shown to us and highly recommend purchasing from this shop without hesitation!

    This phone stylus was perfect for my brother in law who is a new C5/6 quadriplegic without movement in his fingers/hands. Shipping was fast. My tracking didn’t update so I messaged the company and they responded within the hour. (It was actually in my mailbox when I messaged them) Highly recommend this product!

    My husband is quadriplegic with just a little bit of movement in his right arm. We attach this to the tip of a bendable stylus then attach the stylus to my husband's hand brace. He can then use the stylus to operate his iphone and ipad by himself. This is the ONLY option we have been able to find. The stylus is sensitive enough that it works with minimal pressure.

    Bought this as a gift for someone. Their OT is going to help them learn to use it and develop their ease of use of it. I'm optimistic it will be a great tool for him.

    Super fast delivery! My teenage son broke both his wrists (doing a stunt on his bicycle) and has both arms in casts all the way up above his elbows. Our quadripligegic friend jokingly suggested I order him a mouthstick for online gaming during Corona quarantine. Turns out my son is really grateful and likes this mouthstick a lot! I chose the straight tubular because he has seen that on our friend who types and talks at the same time.

On Etsy since 2010

Special needs solutions, since 2010

It's 2010, a turning point in my life after 20yrs in IT...

"Then the iPad came along, and my kids love drawing, but we found the styli available not, shall we say, elegant enough. They were mostly made of rubber or foam.

"So we started making our own, and at the same time I discovered Etsy." This American web venture that sells a very wide range of well-made products created by amateur, semi-professional and professional craftspeople.

"It was easy to set up a shop in Etsy, a nice low-profile platform, and I put some things in there and they just took off."

All the manufacturing is done at home. The kids (now fourteen and seventeen) suggest things and test, Ivo's wife machines the little sleeves of conductive material, and Ivo designs and develops the hard materials.

Soon after launching the shop, people with special needs were taking them apart and attaching them to their headsets, mouse-sticks and other pointing devices and using them with standard iPads.

An now we enable people with various mobility/disability issues on a daily basis to use tablets and smartphones the same as anyone else!
