Lapboards or lap desks are flat surfaces with a pillow underside that fit perfectly on your lap to create a table wherever you are. Krystina, a quadriplegic, users her lapboard for all kinds of daily tasks. 

Whether she wants to eat dinner on the couch or type from wherever she's sitting, Krystina takes hers with her wherever she goes. 

"If you do have paralysis or any issues with your legs, you definitely want to make sure the bottom has a pillow so you don't get any injuries." 

Equipped with a small bar at the bottom, it holds anything from a laptop to a plate of food from sliding right off the board. Also, when the pillow conforms to your lap, it creates a stable surface to write or work.
