Flexible spoon making eating easy for people with cerebral palsy
October 9, 2017
Liftware Level, a battery-operated utensil, is making eating comfortable for people with cerebral palsy. The utensil has been designed by Verily, which was earlier part of Google Life Sciences.
The utensil uses motors and sensors to recognize the position of the hand and adjust. This way people with limited hand and arm mobility can eat without spilling.
The utensil has been developed by Anupam Pathak, who is a technical leader at Google. It is like another technology that his team helped design for people who have hand tremors.
There are sensors inside the device that tell a tiny computer if the spoon is level. If it's not level, it figures out how it needs to move.
