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.

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.

    ChristineFriday, 15 February 2019

    I bought this for my Mom for her chemo appointments. It's the Playful Cats model. Cute as it can be! I put a very small spiral writing pad and a pen in the little pocket. Or she could use it for eyeglasses or anything else she wants. Much lighter than I expected! I'm now thinking of buying one for my Dad and myself!!!!! Thanks UK Live Better!

  4. IBeanie/Cats tablet phone holder

    ChristineFriday, 15 February 2019

    I bought this for my Mom for her chemo appointments or just for lounging around the house. It is very much lighter than I expected! What I thought were going to be heavy beads/beans actually must be styrofoam balls. It is very cute too!

    Dan O'BrienFriday, 28 December 2018

    I love my ibeanie! It is perfect for my ipad. I am a one year breast cancer survivor. I live in the USA and was concerned about dealing with a company out of my country. The people I dealt with at Live Better With were wonderful. Very helpful! I would not hesitate to recommend them or order from them again. You are doing great work, keep it up!

  11. Ibeani tablet and iPad cushion

  15. Very Pleased

    Guillian GrandisonThursday, 08 November 2018

    I purchased one for myself and was so pleased with it I purchase one for my sister in Australia,. It is perfect for a Tablet and Kindle and would highly recommend it

  16. No more stiff neck and hand

    Susanjane NilandThursday, 08 November 2018

    This product is so good I’ve just brought another so I don’t keep having to move it from sitting room to bedroom. I like to doodle on my iPad and this can cause me to get a stiff wrist and thumb from holding it so long, then adjusting it so I can rest my hand I end up with a stiff neck.. This is the perfect solution as wherever you put the ibeani it moulds and stays and the iPad moulds itself into it too. There might be cheaper versions out there but you can definitely see this one is made to do the job right and the added bonus of the handle on it is just brilliant so I highly recommend this

  17. Fantastic!

  25. Wonderful

    JanetSaturday, 29 September 2018


  26. Much easier to use my iPad

    SheilaThursday, 27 September 2018

    I bought this because I have a habit of crossing my legs when sitting in a chair, with the i-Beanie my iPad is just at the right height and I can keep my feet flat on the floor. When I use it in bed it is at the correct height for me too.

  27. Great product!

    NanceyThursday, 27 September 2018

    I love this. It makes it so much easier to use iPad. I bought one for my sister and she loves it.

  28. Very practical

    Quick delivery. Well made product - does what it should.

  29. So comfortable to use

    SusanFriday, 21 September 2018

    Bought for me as a birthday present and it’s just what I need for my iPad,no more aching arms from having to hold it and the pocket is ideal for my phone.

  30. Helpful.

    Jujé Saturday, 15 September 2018

    I was looking for something that would support an iPad or book either when sitting at a table or whilst lounging in bed. This is ideal. It’s light, but very sturdy. It can take an iPad either horizontally or verticalIy. It also has a wee pocket for your phone/ pens etc. It has a double zip underneath so I thought the cover was removable for washing. Apparently it’s not ... you need to sponge clean, if and when necessary. All in all, I’m really pleased with it. Hope this review helps.

  31. Ibeabni cushion

    AmandaFriday, 14 September 2018

    Perfect, quick delivery too!

  32. Brilliant for supporting my books / tablet in bed

    Jules Thursday, 13 September 2018

    Brilliant for supporting my books or tablet for reading in bed. Plus my cat loves using it as a pillow :)

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. Light to hold

    Margaret Thursday, 30 August 2018

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

  36. 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!

  37. Great little thing

    LorraineWednesday, 15 August 2018

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

  41. God send

    Cheryl Friday, 03 August 2018

    A god send during chemo sessions. Being hooked up to a drip doesn’t make it easy to use an iPad but this fabulous little beanbag cushion makes it so easy. It’s lightweight & stylish.

  42. Using my iPad is a much more comfortable experience

    ACWednesday, 01 August 2018

    If I had known about the iBeani I would have purchased one much sooner. Whoever thought of this idea, well done. The Woodland Animals iBeani is a delightful design and very well made. I would definitiely recommend it.

  43. So very comfortable

    KarenFriday, 27 July 2018

    The iBeani is perfect for hands free iPad/Kindle reading; lessens neck and hand strain. My husband kept stealing mine, so we got another one! Great product!

  44. Bought two and it was worth it.

    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.

  45. 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.

  50. 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
