Taptool could be “the perfect accessory for heavy touchscreen users”

Check out the video and a review about Taptool at  http://m.androidauthority.com/taptool-326580/

The Taptool is a unique wearable accessory designed to protect our fingers and joints from potential issues caused by prolonged touchscreen use.

Carol Leynse Harpold‘s insight:

Taptool is a new Kickstarter invention developed by Matt Weiner, PT. As with most inventions, it was created out of need due to the high impact on joints when using mobile devices. A mother of necessity, the Taptool’s purpose is to reduce the repetitive stress caused by frequent tapping on tablets.
