PAD PERCH assistive reading device

Use your smart device hands-free!

The PadPerch was created out of Jenny’s need for a portable desktop magnifier. Smart devices mostly have high resolution cameras, making them the most affordable source of electronic magnification. The problem is, if you hold your phone in your hands, the more you magnify, the less steady the image is. Also, you only have one hand free to perform a desired task.

The PadPerch allows hands-free use of magnifying and other camera-based apps. Independently filling in forms, threading needles, drawing, crafting, doing DIY projects and reading can restore joy and dignity.

The PadPerch recently received funding for development in the SAB Foundation’s Disability Empowerment Awards 2021.
