With the world of literature rapidly migrating toward ebooks, electronic readers and tablets such as the Kindle, Nook and iPad are revolutionizing the reading experience. But for 51.9 million Americans suffering from arthritis, the pain and discomfort caused by holding electronic tablets for extended periods of time renders many incapable of enjoying technological breakthroughs in reading.

Using the eBuddy and iBuddy tablet holders helps eliminate Sleepy Hand Syndrome and the strain on wrists and arms resulting from holding up a tablet for extended periods of time.

Watching her mother, Amanda Crawford, battle advanced arthritis and understanding the restraints arthritis can place on reading first-hand, Amanda Crawford Designs’ owner Myrna Alpern set out to create a book holder that would make any book comfortable to hold and virtually weightless. Through Myrna’s passionate quest to reacquaint her mother with her favorite past time, the BookBuddy book holder was born.

The BookBuddy is an elegant book pillow that is specifically designed to eliminate annoyances that impede the joys of reading, such as aching hands, wrists, neck and the strain placed on a persons back and upper arms while holding a book. Able to hold hard and soft cover books, the BookBuddy can double as a lap desk for laptops with a removable, clear acrylic desktop that is great for times when a hard surface is needed.

BookBuddy book holders, filled with non-toxic poly fibers that distribute weight, are equipped with angled adjustable ribbons located on either side of the pillow not only to keep books secure and prevent them from sliding but also to keep the page open for a truly hands-free reading experience.

Realizing the multiple ways her book holders could assist men and women who suffer from arthritis, especially with the emergence of electronic readers and tablets, Amanda Crawford Designs would soon parlay the success of the BookBuddy to introduce the eBuddy and iBuddy. The eBuddy tablet holder is designed for the Kindle, Nook or other smaller tablets while the iBuddy is designed for the iPad, iPad2, and Kindle DX.

Using the eBuddy and iBuddy tablet holders helps eliminate Sleepy-Hand Syndrome and the strain on wrists and arms resulting from holding up a tablet for extended periods of time. These tablet holders also absorb the heat and weight associated with electronic readers and tablets. Thanks to the inventions of Amanda Crawford Designs, all people suffering from arthritis can enjoy a weightless, hands-free reading experience.
