iPhone 32GB 3GS & iPad 32GB 3G - a matching pair!
The perfect product to best utilize your iPad. It features backpack like straps with two steel wires coming on the front of your chest and bent to a stand shape and padded so that an iPad can fit there snug and secure. Adjustable positions to fit every body type.
Accessory your iCarry with the iSupport. Arm support holders that connect to the iCarry on both sides of your body and bend forward at the armpit area. Padded of course for your comfort. Left or right, or both.
And for all of you tilting iPad gamers out there, a new upgrade, iSwivel features a swivel ball supported stand. Holding your iPad in this stand will allow you to move it left, right, up and down so you don't miss a moment of the action. Goes very well with the iSupport.
And for our new ergonomic line we offer a new product, the iLevel. A very intriguing and highly addictive stand that aims to bring the iPad at eye level. It sits on your shoulders and it is secured in the back with straps that hug your chest and also feature iSupport mounts.
Hate typing on the screen? No worries. When playtime is over and work begins, replace the iSupports with the iType. A keyboard tray that fits in the iSupport mounts but that extends forward for easy keyboard placement and even easier typing. No longer will you have to look at the keyboard to type. Looking at the screen will ensure the same level of confidence in your typing skills. Use standing or sitting. Use it when you jog. Use it when you walk the dog. Use it when you mow the lawn. Use it when you drive. Now get more done while enjoying your favorite activities.
use to get that from just using a phone, stopped using it and it went away...
so maybe stop using the ipad for a while ?
Yes after awhile of holding it, happens to me also, just have to learn to walk away from it for a lil bit lol I know, easier said then done hehe
Only repetitive strain I get is to my wallet! Repeatedly buying apps!
No I get some carpal tune when typing in certain positions, and when playing some card games where I'm using just one finger constantly....cause it's addicting and in don't take breaks!
I got my iPad about 10 months ago and I play a lot of chess on it - lying in bed in the evenings - sometimes for 4 hours at a stretch. After a couple of months I began to get pain in my left shoulder. This got progressively worse and I had a series of cortisone shots which gave some reief but the pain returned. This morning I had pain in my left wrist as well.
Then it suddenly occurred to me that it was probably repetitive strain injury from holding the IPad in my left hand for extended periods. I've now put the iPad in the black case
I bought with it originally and I'm typing this lying in bed with the iPad on my midriff and my left hand and arm completely at rest.
Stupid of me not to have thought of this sooner. I'm pretty sure that has been the problem. I'll confirm this in coming weeks.
Oh, you are definitely right. I got the iPad last August and I started suffering pain in my left wrist and the only thing that was different in my life was my iPad. It gets really heavy if you hold it with left and type with right. It took me a month to figure this out. I never hold it with my left hand now and the pain has gone away! I read a lot! For hours at a time so it was definitely the ipad's weight.
