SEATTLE, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Stand For Stuff announced today that the U.S. Patent office issued a patent for its fully adjustable floor stand, the SwingHolder, a device which makes the iPad useful for reading and watching movies while in a stationary position, such as in bed, exercising, or for persons confined to a wheelchair.
The Seattle Times reviewed the SwingHolder after its launch, highlighting the story of how it was invented. Marty Springer invented the SwingHolder for his wife who has difficulty holding things for a long period of time due to a medical condition. Making use of his engineering background, Springer assembled a product that would allow her to read on her iPad comfortably for as long as she wanted.
The patent number is 8,789,80. A link to the published patent is here: http://goo.gl/c6RLj3. This is the first patent issued for Stand For Stuff. Two more products have been developed since the SwingHolder: a "Tall" version, designed in conjunction with a hospital for use in improving the quality of life for patients, and a "Universal" tablet holder, designed for virtually all sizes of tablets and e-readers.
Stand For Stuff's vision is to be the leading manufacturer of American-made floor stands for tablet computers and ebooks readers and to "stand for stuff" by doing the following:
- Design and build sturdy, high-quality products that will last a lifetime,
- Provide the best customer service,
- Use recycled and recyclable materials whenever possible, and
- Improve the quality of life for our customers.
So far, they have succeeded. The SwingHolder's customer reviews on Amazon average 5 out of 5 stars. Stand For Stuff provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee and has a track record of providing exceptional customer service. The SwingHolder was the winner of TechnoLawyer's Top 25 innovations in 2012. SwingHolders have also improved thousands of lives, from the hospitals patients that have used our products to home users. One buyer from Amazon.com reports, "My son has cerebral palsy and he has been restricted to a wheelchair his whole life... The SwingHolder has given him a degree of independence he never had before; he can now use his iPad for longer periods of time since he doesn't have to hold it all the time... This device has been a godsend for my son."
