A Spoon to Reduce Shaking in Individuals with Parkinson’s

A new spoon from Lift Labs may help others who suffer from hand tremors that make eating difficult. The spoon (which down the road will also have knife and fork attachments) counteracts the movements of a wavering grip, reducing the shaking by 70%.

A video from Lift Ware shows how it works:

Less visible conditions, psycho-social challenges, and the many varied experiences of ageing are still a largely untapped area of design research and development. This example of the spoon might yield further consideration of cutlery altogether. Cultures already use different implements for eating. Why not re-examine cutlery entirely?”
