The challenge: Independent reading in bed

Barak has difficulty reading books independently in bed following complete paralysis of his lower limbs and partial paralysis of his upper limbs. Since Barak suffers from chronic pain, a large part of his day is spent in bed, and the ability to read books independently is crucial to him. Barak is looking for a solution that will allow him to turn pages and comfortably read books of various sizes.
