Quad Desk

GPK
$cost
http://www.gpk.
com/

The Modular QuadDesk is designed from the ground up with the wheel chair user in mind. As shown, unlike other desks, the QuadDesk has only two legs and no crossbeams.

This allows the user to maneuver around the desk without having to worry about bumping your wheelchair, knees or legs on crossbeams, and desk legs.

In addition, while a conventional desk with a fixed height of 26" to 29" would force you into uncomfortable and ergonomically unsafe postures and positions, the QuadDesk's height can be easily adjusted to meet your needs.

Finally, because people in wheelchairs often can not lean, reach, or grip, conventional desks restrict them to the desk's front area, greatly reducing the workspace available. The QuadDesk overcomes this problem with a rotating top that enables people to retrieve items without having to lean or reach.

The QuadDesk is the only desk in the market that has: (1) a manual, or optional motorized, height adjustment
(2) a rotating desk top,
(3) an optional rotating carousel for placing books, magazines, etc. at eye level, and
(4) 14 possible configurations of sizes, and rotating top and extension placement

iRizer

InfoGrip
$40
http://www.
infogrip.com/

The iRizer, by Matias, helps prevent neck & wrist pain by raising your laptop's keyboard & screen to a more comfortable angle. The interlocking design lets you adjust your laptop to the height/angle that's most comfortable for you – 20°, 30°, 40°, or 50°. For maximum comfort, use the iRizer together with a separate keyboard & mouse, and turn your laptop into a more comfortable desktop computer.

The iRizer puts your laptop's keyboard at a more comfortable angle for typing, allowing you to lean back in your chair and straighten your wrists, as recommended by leading ergonomists. The iRizer allows air to circulate freely under your laptop, so it runs cooler and quieter. Stacked together, the iRizer's two slim acrylic plates are only 0.55" thick (14 mm) and easily fit into a notebook bag.
