Robo-Spoon helps people with disabilities control movements while eating
People with disabilities such as cerebral palsy or spinal chord injuries often find it difficult to use spoons or forks while eating because their hands are unsteady.
Now there is Liftware to help them. This is a device created by a group of scientists who spend their time and skills in creating eating tools for people with special needs.
Liftware is a robotic spoon that automatically corrects its level depending on the position of the user’s hand.
It can be tied around the wrist with a flexible rubber strap. The handle has sensors that can detect movement and balance out the level of the spoon.
No matter how much the wrist or hand shakes, the food is less likely to spill.
The battery can last up to three meals before recharge.
