Sole Straightening Patents (Class 12/120.5)
  • Patent number: 9375073
    Abstract: A tablet support accessory is revealed that holds electronic tablets, iPads, notebooks, game players, e-readers, smart-phones, or other interactive electronic devices or viewing devices, on the thigh of a sitting, supine, or semi-supine person. Because interactivity at times involves the tapping on the face of the device, the tablet support accessory is stabilized by coupling a thigh brace and platform assembly, on which the device is held, to a support in the wearer's knee-shin region by means of an adjustable strap.
