The Lift Ware spoon counteracts tremors to make eating easier.

For many people with advanced Parkinson’s disease, hand tremors can make mealtime a frustrating affair. With this in mind, Lift Labs has created a spoon that counteracts the movements caused by tremors, reducing shaking by up to 70%. The high-tech spoon, which will have fork and knife attachments in the future, senses the user’s trembling hand and stabilizes itself, making it easier to eat. The Lift Ware spoon may seem like a small tool, but since there is no cure for tremor-inducing diseases such as Parkinson’s, this type of adaptive technology can make a big difference in the lives of individuals who are simply looking forward to a stress-free, mess-free meal.
