There are many people who have lost their palms due to accidents or congenital disabilities. These shortcomings can affect their behavior in life, such as reading. When reading a book, you need to increase the friction with your fingers to turn the page, and many papers are sharp and can cut the user. Therefore, design a reading aid with a round appearance, using silicone material and elasticity. This reading aid is designed with front and back sides. The front side can be attached to any limb of the user, and the back side has granular silicone to help the user Page turning. If you don’t need to read it, it can be used as a bookmark.
