Electronic Spoon With Motion Stabilising Technology For People With Spinal Cord Injuries And Hand Tremors

Liftware unveiled its new tool that will assist people suffering from hand tremors and spinal cord injuries to have food easily and without spilling it.

Liftware steady (previously marketed as Liftware) is an electronic stabilizing handle and a selection of attachments that include a soup spoon, everyday spoon, fork, and spork. Liftware Steady is designed to help people with hand tremor, which may be related to Parkinson disease or essential tremor, can eat more easily and without spilling the food.

Liftware Steady is electronically stabilized so the attached utensil shakes 70% less than in your hand. It allows the person to not worry about spilling and focus on enjoying your meal.

The stabilizing handles contain sensors that detect hand motion and a small onboard computer that distinguishes unwarranted tremor from the intended movement of the hand.

About Liftware

They are a group of scientists and engineers working to develop new technologies that provide assistance for people with hand tremor and limited hand and arm mobility.

Liftware was founded in 2012 after seeing the experiences of our friends and family. It motivated us to focus on improving the overall quality of life and independence for those with tremors. The Liftware team joined Google Life Sciences in 2014, which became Verily in 2015 as mentioned on Liftware.com

Here are some key points of this electronic spoon that you should know about.

1. Stabilize the utensil

It stabilizes the utensil and the computer directs two motors in the handle to move the utensil attachments in the opposite direction of any detected tremor occurred while movement.

2. Easy to use

It is very convenient to use and hassle free as well. Liftware steady includes two parts those are, a stabilizing handle and utensil attachments. You just need to connect the attachment to turn it on automatically and enjoy your meal then simply use the dock to charge.

3. For people with limited hand mobility

The sole purpose of Liftware Steady or Level is to provide support for people with limited hand mobility and especially those suffering from hand tremors and Parkinson’s disease and also this is usually associated with cerebral palsy or spinal cord injuries. Therefore it is designed as such to fulfill the need and become a companion of people.

4. Electronic motion stabilizing technology

The technology Liftware uses in the innovation of Electronic Level/Steady is electronic motion stabilizing technology. That automatically detects the motion and changes its position accordingly. For instance, if you hold the spoon and make it upside down, the lower end of the spoon with automatically detect the position and it will become upright so that the food it holding does not fall at all. This device keeps utensils steady when you eat.

5. Sensors

All the major sensors are present inside the handle of the spoon so that it can detect a change in position and make changes in the movement more accurately. Then a tiny computer directs motors to blend a joint at the front, this means no matter how the arm moves, food stays at a level angle so that users have an easier time eating meals.

6. Maintainance

The leveling handle will conveniently detach itself from the utensil and so this way users can easily swap out of spoon for a fork and vice versa.
