Mounting a Phone or Tablet on a Planet Fitness Elliptical Machine

Second only to treadmills, the Planet Fitness elliptical machine can be found by the dozens in the front row nearest the televisions.  You cannot beat an elliptical machine for a good cardio workout.  However, those workouts can get long and boring.

Mounting a Phone or Tablet on a Planet Fitness Recumbent Bike

While there is nothing more boring than using a treadmill, a Planet Fitness recumbent bike is a close second.  In fact, it might be a tie. Sure, there are about twenty televisions to watch but that may not work out well for a few reasons.  First, is that you need a corded headset to plug into the Planet Fitness recumbent bike.  Pedaling a Planet Fitness recumbent bike can become a challenge with a cable hanging from the port under the display.  Additionally, and just as obvious, you might not want to watch television.  Perhaps you want to watch YouTube or a podcast. … Read more

Using a dash disk with a suction mount allows you … Read more

Wheelchair Apple iPad Mounts and Holders

I recently had to visit a patient in a rehabilitation center and noted several residents with an Apple iPad and other tablets on their laps.  I suspect this isn’t the greatest arrangement for them and the tablet often gets lost or drops off their laps.  So based on this, I decided to write this article to recommend some wheelchair Apple iPad mounts. Although there are a few exceptions, most wheelchairs are built similarly.  They are constructed of metal circular bars with padding added to the armrest.  The diameter of the round bars are typically in the .75 to 1.25 inch … Read more

Car and Home Mounts for the Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch was released on March 2, 2017.  It’s Nintendo’s seventh home video game console.  Compact in size with the mobile market in mind, the Switch sports a 6.2 inch screen. The Nintendo Switch is a smaller device which means mounting it in a car or anywhere at home can be accomplished with some of the mounts we’ll discuss.  First, we need to look at the all important dimensions and weight.  For mounting purposes, the Nintendo Switch will likely be used without the Joy-Con controller attached as you will need that in your hand to interact with the device. Without … Read more
