April is Parkinson's awareness month.
Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease most commonly characterized by tremors, slowness and stiffness, impaired balance, and rigidity of the muscles. This can cause a huge disruption to everyday life.
Adapting environment can make everyday tasks easier and allows people with Parkinson's Disease to remain independent much longer. This includes things like:
- Dining aids
- Dressing aids
- Fall prevention
- Bathing aids
- Medication reminders
- Mobility aids
- Dexterity aids
Liftware's stabilizing handle and selection of attachments are designed to help people with hand tremor (which may be related to Parkinson's Disease or essential tremor) retain dignity, confidence, and independence.
Liftware Steady electronically stabilizes so the attached utensil shakes 70% less than your hand. Worry less about spilling and focus on enjoying your meal. The stabilizing handle contains sensors that detect hand motion and a small onboard computer that distinguishes unwanted tremor from the intended movement of the hand. To stabilize the utensil, the computer directs two motors in the handle to move the utensil attachment in the opposite direction of any detected tremor.
The Liftware Steady Starter Kit includes the stabilizing handle, charging system, travel pouch, and the soup spoon attachment. Fork, spoon spork attachments are also available and sold separately.
