Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?

These bean bags are ingenious and we absolutely love them. I use mine to support a 10.1 inch tablet and it sits perfectly on the bean bag, while my husband uses his Kindle Fire (which can get heavy after a while). The addition of the small pocket at the side is ideal for my earphones, glasses and screen stylus pen so I never lose them. Just pick up the bean bag and my tablet and everything I need is to hand.

iBeani Cushion FAQs

How does an iBeani help people living with cancer?

The iBeani Tablet / Kindle Cushion helps people living with cancer in many different ways:

Best-evidence shows that keeping your brain stimulated during treatment can improve your mood, and help protect against fatigue and chemo brain. However, it can be difficult to keep your brain stimulated while you're suffering from fatigue, causing a vicious circle. The iBeani E-Reader/Tablet Cushion allows your to comfortably use your Kindle, books or iPad in bed or on the couch, without having to prop yourself up or endure the pain of achy hands or wrists. In this way, the iBeani cushion helps you keep your brain active while expending less energy. It's also perfect for surfing the web, watching films and keeping in touch with your loved ones.

Why does chemotherapy take so long to administer?

Due to the side-effects that could occur, doctors, pharmacists and nurses must go through multiple checklists before giving you your chemo. These include having blood tests, fluids and medications. Although it can be a long and boring day, this is so your chemo is given as safely as possible. This is why many patients use their iBeani Cushion during their chemotherapy treatment, to help them pass the time in comfort. 

Is it normal to feel tired with cancer?

Yes. Cancer can play havoc with your body, causing you to use more energy, leading to you getting tired quicker. Additionally, chemotherapy treatments and surgery can lead to tiredness and fatigue for numerous reasons. For example, chemotherapy decreases your red blood cell count. These cells are responsible for carrying oxygen to every part of your body. If the number of red cells goes down, even slightly, your body will become tired.

Can I wash my iBeani?

Due to the beans inside the iBeani, they are unable to go inside the washing machine. The fabric can be cleaned using a damp wipe. 

What can I place on my iBeani e-reader tablet cushion?

The iBeani pillow can rest your tablets, such as iPad, Kindle, magazines, books, mobile phones, or small laptops. If it fits onto your iBeani, you can put it on your iBeani. 

Are iBeani’s appropriate to use if I have a contagious infection (such as c.diff)?

As you cannot wash iBeani, if you are experiencing side effects of a contagious illness such as the flu or chickenpox, it would be best not to use the iBeani until you feeling better. As you do not want to contaminate the iBeani. 

Can I use my iBeani for anything else?

Many women after mastectomies or lymph node biopsies or removal have commented how the iBeani is the perfect shape to rest their arm on. Simply place the iBeani underneath your arm and rest. You can leave the iBeani pillow there while relaxing on the couch or at night time while you sleep. The beans mean the iBeani is still soft but also malleable to fit into a position which you find comfortable. 

How can I get into the iBeani?

It is recommended that you do not attempt to open up the iBeani, as the beans may fall out. However, there are two zips that sit on both layers of fabric that can be undone if you do wish to get into the bag. Please also note, that returning a product post this may not be feasible. 

How do I clean the iBeani?

  • Spot clean only

    IPad pillow

    I'm luckily not a Cancer patient but have often been concerned about the effect of balancing my IPad straight on my lap while sitting. It was also difficult to use both hands for typing. This pillow has solved both problems, I love it.

  10. Linda - Wednesday, 01 March 2017


    I have a nerve in my elbow that gives me pins and needles down to my fingertips especially when I am using my mobile phone or tablet. Resting them on the ibeanie gives a lot of relief. I would recommend this product.

  24. Anji - Thursday, 08 December 2016


    I recently purchased the ibeani ereader/tablet cushion. It is the best thing I have purchased in a long time! It is well-made and weighs practically nothing, yet supports my iPad perfectly. It doesn't look like medical equipment, which is a plus if you plan the take it with you when you're out and about. The little pocket allows me to keep everything together. I've told my home health nurse and everyone else I know about it. Don't think twice about purchasing this product. You won't be disappointed.

  25. Pauline - Wednesday, 07 December 2016

    Ideal gift

    I brought this for a family member who has had a complete bowel removal and therefore cannot sit only lay on either side. She likes to read books downloaded on her tablet and found that impossible. Now the tablet is propped on the beanie bag anywhere close is so ideal

  26. Leslie Timmerman - Wednesday, 07 December 2016

    Love it!

    Very light weight, so cute, and works very well. Hubby getting his first tablet for Christmas so I ordered him one as well. (One a little more masculine looking than the cute foxes of course.)

  27. Sue - Tuesday, 06 December 2016

  31. Kate - Tuesday, 06 December 2016

    Eases the pain

    Bought for my friend who has lung cancer which has spread to her ribs and spine. She has found it easy and comfy to use and consequently still able to send messages on her iPad. Thank you.

  32. Kay Maraccini - Tuesday, 06 December 2016

    Post surgical helper and more!

    I had surgery on my thumb, so I knew I was going to have a hard time eating and reading and using my iPad. Little did I know it was going to work so well. I used it to rest my elbow to keep my hand elevated, to support my bowl while eating, to support my book and iPad. It has been wonderful. I bought one for a friend who was having the same surgery and she is finding it just as useful, she has thanked me several times.

  33. Susan - Tuesday, 06 December 2016
