The MYDESC Tilt-top Desks are lapboards designed to provide an adjustable hard writing or reading surface for persons who work away from a desk or table, or for wheelchair users. These portable desks are ergonomically designed to accommodate the user's needs by swiveling, tilting, and pivoting through an infinite number of positions. When use of the desk surface is completed, the desktop swings away from the user's body with a single wrist motion. There are four different tilt-top models available, and five different custom desktop models (see separate entries). Models 350-1016 and 350-1018 ($159.95) feature 16-inch and 18-inch wide rectangular bases, respectively, and can be used with wheelchairs with 16- or 18-inch widths, sofas, beds, or the floor. Both of these models include a support brace and tapered knob for floor usage. The MYDESC Tilt-top Desk with MYDESC EZ-Removable Arm (model 350-1002, $229.95) is designed specifically for attachment to wheelchairs and features a J-shaped arm-rest with adjustable cylinder posts. The posts allow the unit to mount into the slots of some removable wheelchair arms, and therefore can replace the existing wheelchair arm during use. This model may also be used on wheelchairs without armrests for persons preferring the added support of an armrest when writing. The MYDESC Tilt-top Desk with 90-degree Direct Mount Bracket (model 350-1090, $198.95) comes with a bracket for direct mounting on a wheelchair frame or other furniture. This metal bracket provides a 1- inch diameter cylinder slot which secures the desktop in place. The bracket mounts on wheelchair tubing from 0.75 to 1.25 inches in diameter, and can be installed vertically or horizontally. COMPONENTS: The main frame is constructed of heavy duty steel tubing and coated with a durable urethane- polyester with black textured finish. The desktop surface is a clear, smokey acrylic with a stopper bar to keep pencils and papers from sliding off. DIMENSIONS: Base frame is 17.75 x 18 inches; height to leveled desktop is 14.5 inches; and writing surface is 12.25 x 17.5 inches. WEIGHT: 13 pounds.
