The G-Hold is an innovative new accessory for tablets which makes it quick, easy and ergonomic to hold your tablet while working or playing.

Developed by Scottish single mother Alison Grieve three years ago, the product is already popular, having sold more than 10,000 on the US Home Shopping Network last December, and researchers at the University of the West of Scotland believe it can reduce repetitive strain injuries among heavy-use tablet users.

Now the Daily Record reports that Microsoft specialists have asked Grieve to design a device for their Surface line of tablets for this summer.

Grieve said: “G-Hold really adds value to Surface when it’s used as a mobile unit rather than at a desk. Microsoft are really excited about our product.”

Microsoft targets the Surface range at so-called corridor warriors who may see great benefit from the device. See it demonstrated below.
