Many cancer patients have told us that due to fatigue or treatment they spend a lot more time resting and lying down.

With the iBeani you can use your tablet to surf the web, read books, watch films and keep in touch with your loved ones, all without the pain or discomfort of holding your device for long periods of time.

Using the iBeani you can easily type with both hands, eat while you watch something on your tablet, or just snuggle up in bed or on the sofa without having to try and balance your tablet on your lap.

Women recovering from breast surgery have also told us they found their iBeani helpful in finding a comfortable position for their arm after surgery. After a mastectomy or lymph node surgery, your underarm can be very tender and uncomfortable, and iBeani can help to keep your arm elevated in a more comfortable position while you rest and heal.

iBeani cushions are all handmade in the UK, and Gift Association certified.

iBeani Dimensions: (approx) 28 x 24 x 12.5 cm

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, using a damp cloth or wipe. Due to the beans inside the iBeani, it cannot be machine washed. 


Customer Reviews

  1. Great Beani- like having an extra set of hands.

    SUZSaturday, 01 September 2018

    Love my beani - used it with my phone, tablet & e reader. Great to hold phone when I am “ on hold” so I can do other tasks while waiting.

  2. Excellent product

    Chris DavenportFriday, 31 August 2018

    Very useful for iPad or books which I previously tried to hold with one knee bent! Can now read/work in complete comfort. Also useful to have the little pouch for a telephone and/or pens.

  3. Light to hold

    Margaret Thursday, 30 August 2018

    I bought this to alleviate a neck problem caused by a trapped nerve. It worked brilliantly.

  4. Perfect!

    Rebecca LalumiaThursday, 16 August 2018

    I love my ibeani in the woodlands animal print. It is very lightweight and flexible. The bean stuffing allows one to position it many ways. I have a hard stand on my iPad already but can use my iPad on the ibeani without removing the stand. I use it mainly to hold it at the angle I need for whatever position I’m in. It’s great for reading too. It is very well made and the fabric is nice. I was reluctant to try it because of previous disappointments with online products, but this one is a winner!

  5. Great little thing

    LorraineWednesday, 15 August 2018

    Bought for mum so she was more comfortable in bed. Made a huge difference !

  10. Using my iPad is a much more comfortable experience

    ACWednesday, 01 August 2018

  11. So very comfortable

    KarenFriday, 27 July 2018

    Mary FisherFriday, 20 July 2018

    I got one for me and one for a friend and we both love them. I actually fell asleep with mine holding my ipad and woke up with it just as it was last night.

  13. The best gift!

    FeebTuesday, 03 July 2018

    I have one myself which I love and have given them as gifts to relatives who use them for all different things -- ipad holders, tablet holders, to rest sore elbow on, and to keep from always leaning in one direction against the arm of the couch. I also have a little friend who thinks it's a perfect beanbag chair for her dolly.

  18. Watching iPad in comfort

    AlexandraMonday, 11 June 2018

    This tablet cushion is ideal for reading a kindle or watching programmes on an iPad whilst lying in bad or on the sofa. I’ve also used it as a support for sleeping after my mastectomy (wedged between my elbow and side) and it has enabled me to sleep comfortably on my side. I highly recommend it

  19. Flexibly while setting and laying down.

    Delores KellyMonday, 11 June 2018

    Good service, brilliant product

  22. Brilluant

    YvonneSunday, 10 June 2018

    Bought this for my husband - he is loving it. Saves him holding his kindle and keeps it steady on his lap. Wish I had seen it a long time ago. Lovely bright pattern too.

  23. Bought for friend

    LizSaturday, 09 June 2018

    My friend was just out of hospital and had to rest, so I thought the iBeanie would be just the thing for her iPad, as I thought flowers were a bit fleeting as a gift! She absolutely loves it and she loved the duck egg colour(matched her slippers, apparently, ha ha!!)

  24. IBeanie

    LindaFriday, 08 June 2018

    My IBeanie arrived very quickly and I am so pleased that I ordered it. No holding m weighty IPad anymore in my left hand while tapping away with my right! Very useful too to have a free hand if you want to write or take notes at the same time. Also can prop up my IPad on my IBeanie while lying down, it's just great and much more than I really hoped it would be. There's a handy little pouch on the side perfect for keeping your mobile handy or pens etc. The colour choices too are all very attractive and I love the Stars pattern. All in all, a perfect on line purchase.

  25. Great invention

    Pat RobertsonFriday, 08 June 2018

    I love my ibeani , don’t have to hold my iPad it just sits safely on the cushion.

  26. Love the E reader

    Ida DaytonFriday, 08 June 2018

  27. Very fit for purpose and also useful in other ways

    Carole Monday, 04 June 2018

    Excellent and fun

  28. Works well for shoulder surgery, too.

    Janet RoemigMonday, 04 June 2018

    I had rotary cuff surgery that causes me a lot of pain. I use the bean bag to rest my arm on. It is especially comfortable when riding in the car. Wish the cat bean bag was available.

  29. The ibeani

    PaulaSunday, 27 May 2018

    Positively love the ibeani, it is perfect for holding my iPad when I’m using it and great for using during FaceTime!

  30. iPad

    John Sunday, 27 May 2018

    My wife has found this to be very useful. She was finding it difficult to hold the pad and type. Now it rests on the cushion and she is OK. When I first saw it, I was surprised that it did not have some sort of shelf to rest the iPad on, but it does not need one. A good idea.

  31. Love it!

    CamillaSaturday, 19 May 2018

    This is a great item! I had been using a sofa pillow. Now I can put the pillow back on the sofa! I would recommend this without reservation.

  32. IBeanie E Reader

    KarenSaturday, 12 May 2018

    Love this little bag. It makes balancing my iPad or kindle anywhere so much easier and safer. No more sliding off my knee or the side of the sofa. Great choice of colours too and excellent price in the Bank Holiday Sale.

  33. iBeani

    JackieSaturday, 12 May 2018

    Bought for my 93-year-old mum as her hand would cramp holding her Kindle and she finds it very good. Great idea!

  34. Comfort

    Pat LozoMonday, 07 May 2018

    Great product and I love it. So much more comfortable while I'm using my iPad. Thank you 😊

  35. Comfy kindle and iPad use

    Su SSaturday, 28 April 2018

    This was for my elderly mum who now has gout in her wrist. It’s proving very useful at holding her iPad and Kindle in a good position when either sitting or when lying in bed. And the side pocket is handy for glasses and sweeties!

  36. I pad puffe

    JaneSunday, 15 April 2018


  37. Just what I needed!

    JuneSaturday, 14 April 2018

    This is a wonderful idea. Stops me getting a sore neck!

  38. Ibean e reader

    Joanie CaudillSaturday, 14 April 2018

    This has been a God send for me. I have trouble with my hands and arms. I love to read when I go to bed but bothers my arms to hold Kindle. The e-reader has made it wonderful for me to read and relax in bed.

  39. Gift for Shannon

    SarahFriday, 13 April 2018

    I got the ibeani as a gift for my friend Shannon. I already have one that I love and use all the time. She admired it and wanted one. When she received hers, she was delighted and told me how much she loves hers too.

  40. So light and useful.

    Trudy WilliamsFriday, 06 April 2018

    Bought this because I have fibromyalgia and holding my tablet or kindle for any length of time can be very painful. Now I can relax and read both on good days and not so good bedbound days. I have also bought one for a friend who loves to read in bed but who also has neck and shoulder problems. The iBeani is wonderful.

  41. Ipad -ibeanie holder

    KarenThursday, 05 April 2018

    I love this product. It makes it so much more comfortable to use my ipad and to watch movies .

  42. Very comfortable to use

    Linda ReaSaturday, 24 March 2018

    I have now bought 2 ibeanies. I am giving the 2nd one as a gift. I am very happy that my purchase helps support the American cancer society.

  43. Comfort

    JeanneThursday, 22 March 2018

    This product allows me to use my iPad more comfortably. My neck use to ache after any extended use of my iPad. This product allows my iPad to set in a comfortable position on my lap; it also raises and angles my iPad in a very usable position. I love it!

  44. My wrist aches holding my iPad or kindle for a lng period

    CaroleThursday, 22 March 2018

    This is brilliant, I am so pleased with it. Love the colour and daffodils. It is so lightweight, easy to use and my device stays put. Very secure. Angle easily adjusted. Highly recommended.

  45. no neck pain

    MarieSaturday, 17 March 2018

    What i found so helpful is the lightness of the Ibeanie and how easily it holds my iPad or Kindle when i sit in my lounge chair. I was always slumping over and getting neck pains or pains in my wrists. This keeps me up straight and works great.

  46. Comfortable Reading

    TeresaFriday, 16 March 2018

    I have found the iBeani the best thing for my kindle and mobile phone to rest in. It leaves one or both hands free - so good for achy fingers, hands and arms.

  47. Brilliant idea

    JuneThursday, 15 March 2018

    I do not have cancer, but have neck pain and also hand and wrist pain and I have found this cushion to be excellent when using my tablet.

  48. Arm support with i-pad

    AvrilMonday, 12 March 2018

    It is excellent and I no longer have arm/shoulder ache.

  49. My little Godsend.

    Brenda Monday, 12 March 2018

    Love it! I bought the "owl" design as it matches other things I have. This cushion makes it SO much easier for me to use my tablet. I have very limited use in my left hand and have had a tablet slip out of my hand and break the screen. Now I don't have to worry any more. It is the answer to my prayers!

  50. iBeanie is a very helpful and practical item

    BarbaraSunday, 11 March 2018

    I bought one of these for myself for holding my iPad while reading in bed or laying on the couch - and it is perfect for doing exactly that. Even if you have a cover on the iPad, it will work fine. I have found my cover helps hold it even better if I drape the cover over the iBeanie, behind the iPad, but a cover that doesn’t open wide enough to drape fits well, too. The iBeanie will hold books, iPads of all sizes (even the largest ones), Kindles, cell phones, laptops. I like mine so much that I have bought them as gifts for everyone in the family and they are in continual use with them, too. Highly recommended.
