This section lists a range of equipment for holding and positioning reading materials including bookrests, stands and tables.
The section also includes reading lights that can be clamped and positioned to focus on reading materials and prism spectacles designed for individuals to read or watch television whilst lying flat in bed.
If the book rest, table or stand will require moving out of the way when you stand up, and putting back in place when you are seated, then the weight and manoeuvrability of the book rest, table or stand needs to be considered. Some floor standing book rests and tables have castors which may help to make it easier to move them. The ease with which these castors move over the floor will vary depending on the floor surface. For example, they may be harder to push on thick pile carpets.
