Modified stylus

A stylus for navigation on touchscreens/smartphones and for typing on keyboard - suitable for people with extensive disabilities without finger function

Description
The stylus is modified with a triangular pencil grip. The stylus enables the user to navigate to the various touchscreens. It is also used for the computer keyboard.

Authors comments
The user is very satisfied with the adapted stylus. She writes very quickly with it on her iPad. Writing on a standard keyboard also works very well, because the "head" of the pen has good friction.
The user holds the pen differently in her right and left hands (see photos 3 and 4) because her right hand has a pinch grip following hand surgery.
