Mouth painting with iPad
iPad makes it easier for people with limited reach to draw or paint – suitable for people with disabilities
Drawing function on iPad is controlled with a custom mouth stick, see associated tip.
The user is an artist and draws and paints with his mouth. Using the iPad is different from painting or drawing on paper, like a new technique. For the user it is easier to reach and to mix paints and to switch brushes since everything is available on the screen. He can draw for two hours with only small breaks without developing neck pain.
