Using my PC when stuck in bed - Suggestions please

The tough reality of my illness M.E. means that im stuck in bed quite often with very little energy and unable to do the most mild of physical activity. My pc is infront of my bed about three foot from the end of the bed and its the only screen in the house i can comfortably watch without being sick so most laptops, TVs and tablet screens are out.
When im layed up i watch films and can do very little; a small amount of gaming.
Im looking for a solution to use the screen and be able to stay in bed. whether its to get something like the corsair lapdog, use a gaming controller or buy a console for using media and playing games. The screen im using is a 27" xb271hu G sync panel. What would you do if you were stuck in bed and wanted to use your pc/ screen?

Wireless keyboard and mouse on one of those laptop trays with a beanbag underneath them.

I was just looking at the Razer turret wireless keyboard and mouse. Looks fairly small too

I just saw the roccat sova which looked interesting

No worries man I hope life treats you better. When I was 8 (so oo, 1982?) I ran out in front of a car and got hit full on. Cracked vertebrae, fractured skull, broken right leg, broken right arm but most importantly (and what kept me in hospital for four months) my left femur was shattered. I had to first have a couple of ops, then they put me in traction (IE strap you to a bed, pull your leg bone apart with weights then let the weights off and guide the bone back together). They can't put it in a cast because they would have to cover your willy

So yeah man, spent lots of time in bed. Those tables are a godsend tbh. Didn't have PCs back then but I used to do my scrapbook and drawings etc

BTW. If you get bored and need a gaming partner fire me a PM. I'm usually around and own pretty much every co op game ever written

Thanks man. I appreciate that alot. It's not much fun when your stuck in bed and only get to see four walls. I need suggestions of co op games and games in general. I'm old school and only a couple of years younger than you.

Ironically A couple of years after you had your accident I fractured my skull, collar bone arm and most the fingers on one hand skateboarding on one of those groovy 70s thin boards. I was unconscious for five days and did 2 weeks in hospital concussion. I was trying to jump off a high wall. I didn't learn my lesson either

Haha awesome

Left 4 Dead 2 is probably about the best, because the mod campaigns are practically endless. I'm away from home ATM and will be again in a week or so but shoot me your steam ID and I'll shoot you a message when I'm around.
