FeatherGrip / A smart technology grip


Feather Grip seeks to solve a problem before it develops. The discrete, affordable and detachable gripping and holding aid for personal smart devices will relieve the stress off the fingers and joints, and allow comfortable use of smart devices even for suffers of hand ailments such as arthritis etc.

This solution will allow full movement of the phone position, orientation, and transition, adjustment of the strap size and tightness, and a lock-in system to keep the aid discrete when not in use. Feather Grip will sit permanently on the phone, but will be very easily removable and re-attachable to various devices.
