This mount was originally developed for a three-year-old girl with a brain injury and vision challenges who uses an iPad for communication and to improve her attention. Being so young, the little girl would often push and pull on her iPad, sometimes sending it flying to the floor. So CanAssist was asked to create a mount that would hold the tablet securely in place. The Multi-Surface iPad Mount was developed using a commercially available iPad holder and two adjustable mounting arms. CanAssist reinforced and customized the case to work with the two mounting arms, while also ensuring easy access to the tablet's power button. The mount can easily be attached to a wheelchair tray, a standing frame, and many other surfaces, including most tabletops. In addition, while the device holds an iPad very securely, users can still adjust its position and angle with ease.
