For many people, eating a meal is a time filled with challenges and insecurity. Tremors associated with Parkinson’s Disease and Essential Tremor can make seemingly simple tasks such as using silverware a complicated endeavor that takes the joy out of mealtime. Now, the tremor can be reduced in your eating utensils even if it can’t be reduced in your hands.
Liftware uses cutting-edge technology to detect and stabilize the tremors suffered by people with Parkinson’s Disease and Essential Tremor, providing a base that automatically adjusts itself to compensate for uncontrollable movements.
Proven effective with 70% tremor cancellation demonstrated in clinical trials, the idea is similar to the technology used in Hollywood to steady cameras while moving and filming at the same time.
An ultra-thin rechargeable battery will last for several days on a single charge, and the Liftware unit, made up of the Liftware Base Stabilizer and its attachments, is small enough to take with you anywhere so it can be just as beneficial on the road as it is at home.
The Stabilizer costs $295, and it comes with a charging cradle, free storage case, travel bag, and a free spoon attachment. Other attachments expected in the future, which will cost less than $20 each, include a soup spoon, a fork, and a keyholder.
If you like the idea of Liftware but aren’t in need of such a device yourself, the company also allows for donations to be made so that a Liftware unit can be provided for someone who could benefit from it.
