HandStand2, rotating case for iPad 2, now available

updated 01:00 am EDT, Thu May 19, 2011

Case becomes extension of users' hands

The HandStand2, an ergonomically-designed case for the iPad 2, is now available for ordering. The case, made from recycled materials, features a strap that fits over the hand of the wearer, making the iPad 2 an extension of the arm, enabling easy carrying and one-handed use for extended periods. The case itself rotates 360 degrees as well as provides protection to the iPad, and when not worn rests at a slight incline for typing or viewing use on a flat surface.

The original version of the case has already found an audience in the health care, finance, education, legal and pharmaceutical professions, as well as being popular with presenters who need to keep a hand free to use other equipment. The case allows full viewing of the screen, making it ideal for viewing X-Rays or full-screen photographs. Because it won't slip off accidentally, the iPad can be carried while worn and instantly be available for use -- making it easier for the iPad 2 to be used while conversing with colleagues, touring facilities or out in the field.

Other occupations where the iPad would need to be held for long periods of time -- whether it's a professor giving a slideshow-based lecture or a student taking notes -- would make use of the HandStand2 to reduce fatigue and keep at least one arm free.

The HandStand2 costs $50, and is available in black, white or pink.

    Bravo!

    I'm delighted that someone finally making a case for iPads that's useful while standing. Those who make cases for Kindles might want to take note of the hand strap. I wish my Kindle case had one.

    How does it attach and detach from the iPad

    Looks good but they don't show, here or on the website, how it gets attached. Nor can I find how much it weighs, which I would think would be highly relevant information...
