Phone Holder

Ted is an older gentleman who frequently visits Illinois Assistive Technology Program (IATP) to browse the Demonstration Center for new assistive technology options. Ted was very interested to learn about the Makers program and 3D-printing. Ted was assisted by one of the Makers’ team members to browse the product page on the website. He noticed that Makers have tablet stands in their inventory, but he wanted to inquire about a solution that will hold his small phone due to poor grip strength.
Makers located an open-source file for an adjustable, small phone stand and quickly printed it for Ted. The phone stand can hold the phone at either a horizontal or vertical position, and it is lightweight and easily accessible for Ted to adjust as needed. The phone stand will provide Ted the opportunity to have free hands when requiring use of his phone, especially during FaceTime calls with family members.
