The laptop sits on a custom-made table attached to the bed frame with a stand. The table has small edges so the computer cannot slide down. The computer is controlled with a head mouse that has a custom-made holder and sits above the computer. Software applications are WiVik and Dragger.
WiVik is a screen-based keyboard, see www.rehabmodul.se/katalogen/wivik3.html (last checked Febr. 2017). Dragger is a program for automatic timed click with the right and left mouse button, see orin.com/access/dragger/index.htm (last checked Febr. 2017).
The user feels that the computer table is one of the best assistive devices he has. Because of problems with pressure ulcers he does sometimes works from home. He works sitting or semi-reclining in bed. He has a wireless network. The work takes a little longer since the table is somewhat unstable. The slightest vibrations disturb the head mouse.
