This case is perfect for mobile users with an iPad habit


The HandStand is a case for the original iPad that is made from a flexible and strong plastic material. It has a hand grip on the back that has an elastic strap making it easy to grip your iPad securely. The HandStand is available now for $49.99 and comes in black or white.

In Use

The first time I saw the HandStand I was intrigued. Anyone that uses their iPad on the go where they are moving a lot and need one handed access to the tablet will appreciate this case. I have held my iPad with one hand and typed on it with the other before when standing up. I always felt like I was on the verge of dropping the tablet.

With the HandStand, the elastic strap secures the iPad to your hand and the knob you grip has a finger hold. The system means that you have an excellent grip on the case and your iPad. The hand grip that you use also rotates to allow you to move the iPad between portrait and landscape modes. The knob clicks as you rotate it so that it will stay securely in the best position for use and won't move on its own.

The case is made from a material somewhere between the hard plastic cases on the market and silicone. It's more ridged than silicone, but it isn’t as hard as the plastic cases I have used. You can get your iPad into the case and not worry that it will slip out. That means you can move around and even hold the iPad with the screen down with your hand in the strap and not worry it will break.

If you use an iPad on your feet this is an excellent case. If you work in a medical setting this case is a must for tablet use. Another nice feature of the grip on the back of the HandStand is that the raised section you put your fingers over also will prop the screen up slightly. The lift it gives makes typing with both hands when the tablet is lying on a desk more comfortable.



  • Offers great grip
  • Protects the iPad from drops


  • Adds lots of bulk


The HandStand is perfect for users that will be on their feet with an iPad a lot. It makes the tablet much more bulky, but the extra safety when moving and using the tablet will be worth the bulk for most people.
