The range of assistive eating devices available here is specifically aimed at supporting the needs of the elderly and people of all ages who have restricted mobility. These are all low-tech items ranging from cutlery aids to bowls with lips, and from cups with long drinking spouts to non-slip lap trays.
Eating and Drinking
Here you will find drinking aids for elderly and people of all ages. They are designed with features that make them easier to use by people who have difficulty swallowing. They are also good if you have other mobility issues and can protect against spills and scalding if you have limited strength and find it hard to grip or lift cups The range includes dual handled mugs and easy grip, no spill cups.
Eating can become more difficult as you age, with declining strength or a reduction in dexterity resulting from illness or disability making it hard to handle cutlery. Tasks such as cutting, or lifting food can be very challenging and may affect an individual’s ability to eat, which in turn can contribute to deterioration in other ways.
Intelligently designed plates and bowls that improve the users ability to grip and hold essential items despite having limited strength or suffering from arthritis or rheumatism. The plates and bowls also have features such as raised sides, sloped bases, and suction pads, all intended to make it easier for an individual with restricted dexterity to eat safely and with enhanced dignity.
