The padpod is a pyramid-shaped bean bag which is stable on your lap, when you are lying in bed or when it is placed on a table or desk. Your iPad, Kindle, smartphone or whatever can be placed on it at any angle that is comfortable. It can be used at work or at home, in bed, in a plane in a car - anywhere! The designer is an occupational therapist and the padpod is refined to the highest standards of comfort and safety and made locally in Melbourne. The weight of your iPad, or whatever other item you are using, holds it in place on your padpod naturally. There is no need for straps or adhesives. You can use your padpod to hold anything – your iPad, Kindle, smartphone, cookbooks in the kitchen or a novel in bed. Simple, elegant and effective. Designed for comfort. Chiropractors admire it for its simplicity and ability to limit neck flexion and forward head posture. It may decrease headaches and tension from having the neck flexed too long. Certainly a must for young students browsing tablets so often.
