    2. That case is the same as the Simplism Case. I can add it if people want me too, but it seemed redundant to list the same case in the same category. If cases were the same or exceedingly similar I just listed the lower prices case.

    4. We do have lots of options regarding on what approriate ipad cases were going to use and fit for our stuff, it might be look expensive but you can always rely on their qualities and features or just choosing the cheap one to save money but still has a quality... But if the two has the same features and trusted quality I just got the cheap ones with a lower price and has the same quality with any other branded ipad cases..

    5. www.tridentcases.com has one called the Krakken that is very much like an Otterbox, except that it has molded indentations for grip/handles. I like that you can change the colors just by buying the silicone outer case too. My son loves this case.

    6. I hope this doesn't come across as an advertisement. My name is Kirk Mills. I am the founder and president of KEM Ventures, Inc. We make a product called Big Grips Frame for iPad. Big Grips Frame was designed from the start as an iPad case for kids. It's not waterproof, but it is durable and lightweight (many cases add a great deal of weight). Made of foam, it's also squishy and easy to clean, but more importantly, it's very protective against drops. We also make the complimentary Big Grips Stand for holding and propping Big Grips Frame.

      We've been getting a lot interest from special needs families and education groups, so I just wanted to let everyone here know about Big Grips as another option. You can find more information, pictures, etc. at http://www.biggrips.com.

      Regards,
      -Kirk

    7. I know this article is from last year so thought people reading this article that all the major mounting system manufacturers now ipad adaptor plates to allow mounting to chairs. You can find details on the Daessy, Rehadapt, and Mount N Mover sites. Courtesy of our a very generous supplier we have the Trident and Big Grips in our assessment stock and they both have some unique and useful features.
