    My disabled son has not used this yet but I tried it out myself and it will work perfectly for him. He has an eye gaze computer but is bored with it. He loves being able to physically interact but is very difficult for to be able to. His computer It has touch options as well but he doesn’t have the hand control to grasp/use a regular stylus pen. It is very difficult to help him hold one. He loves to be able to interact physically. But he also isn’t able to touch the screen hard enough to select what he wants. This modified stylus is perfect and I am so excited to start using this with him. Thank you so much!

    I bought this stylus for my adult daughter who is very crippled by a rare neurological condition. She found it easy to grasp, and is so happy to have something she can use on her iPad and Switch gaming console. It is a bit pricey, but well worth every penny if it makes her life easier!

    The quality of this head pointer is excellent and was easy to attach to the head band. We will definitely buy from shapedad again because he is so helpful and does such great work.

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!
