5 tips for mounting your assistive keyboard in the best way

Assistive technology refers to a collection of tools and services designed to provide support to individuals with special needs. These tools are meant to either help them do things better or help them do things on their own when they might find it challenging. By using these tools, people can maintain or improve their ability to do things independently, which is good for their well-being and happiness.

Here are five tips for achieving the most flexible mounting solution for your assistive keyboard:

At Clevy, we understand that individuals with limited motor skills face challenges when using keyboards. One of the most effective solutions for this is a Keyguard, which proves to be highly beneficial. It allows the user to rest their hands on the keyboard without accidentally pressing keys.
