World wide wheelchair – friendly web

… Staying connected to the  Internet becomes a lifeline when you can’t get out and about as you would like. Hours seem to melt away when you can explore the web. YouTube, Facebook, Amazon… The possibilities are endless.  

Having limitations on the use of your arms and hands make it seem impossible. I am able to stay connected to my iPad by adding a simple sling to the overhead patient lift I was already using for transfers.. By using the sling to suspend my arm from the lift, I can position my hand over the iPad sitting on my lap. The lift makes my arm weightless which allows it to float above my iPad. I can move my hand around and use my finger to navigate. I use an inexpensive glove with the index finger cut out, so that I can still place my other fingers on the glass for stability
