People that I have cared for have repeatedly mention how they are really not keen about people assisting them with meals and if they need to be assisted with meals, they rather have meals alone in their room. At the same time for people experiencing tremors, cutlery at home just doesn’t help make things any easier. Wearing an adult bib every time you want to have a meal or just having food spilt on your clothes is just a constant unsupportive reminder of the condition.This innovation appears provide a good solution to a salutogenic or enablement model of care, providing support to help people stay independent and social in the face of adversity.
Anyway, I caught this video on facebook the other day and I thought it would be a good to share with everyone about this innovative set of cutlery that can help to counteract tremors. Checked out their website https://www.liftware.com/ after watching the videos and found their product video which explains how it works.
To be honest checking out their store, $300 is pretty full on for a starter kit and I hope that perhaps they will become cheaper over time or more new inventions can be produced to provide people with affordable alternatives.
