If you have poor hand grip then phones can be a tricky business – we have some device that will help you to hold, use and charge your phone.
If you don’t have a built in satnav in your car, chances are you are using your phone for directions. Or maybe you use your phone for music, or need it where you can see it to see who is calling? Phone holders often are difficult to attach to the windscreen and involve pressing buttons or wrestling against sprung systems to release phones – not great if you have reduced hand function! This one is much easier to use: the mount slots into your heater vent and the phone attaches magnetically to the mount. It comes with a thin metal plate/disk that either attaches to the back of your phone or inside your phone case. We stuck ours at the bottom of our phones, beneath the ungrip, which makes pressing the home button much easier!

Plugging in a phone charger when you have reduced hand function can be difficult. This set up makes it easy – the phone cable is so keen to connect! There is a small adapter that fits into your phone or iPad, which stays in there. The cable then connects once it is held near to the phone.
