I first introduced Liftware back in 2014. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it is an eating utensil that cancels out tremors making it easier to eat. The same company has recently released an all-new product coined Liftware Level.
The original Liftware (now called “Liftware Steady”) is an electronic stabilizing handle with an assortment of attachments. It is primarily designed for those with hand tremors and reduces utensil shakes by 70% less than the users’ hands.
The new Liftware Level helps users hold a utensil at a necessary angle. It’s designed to help people with limited hand or arm mobility, which may be related to:
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal cord injury
- Huntington’s disease
- Muscular dystrophy
- Post-stroke deficits
- And more
The Liftware Level uses electronic motion-stabilizing technology that keeps the utensil level, regardless of how one’s arm twists, bends, or moves.
“The leveling handle contains sensors that detect changes from the intended movement of the hand in 3 dimensions. To level the utensil, the computer directs two motors in the handle to bend the flexible gray joint, keeping the attachment at the right angle.”
Features of Liftware Level:
- Easy to use:
- Simply connect the utensil attachment to the leveling handle to turn it on automatically
- Disconnect the attachment to turn off and plug handle into charger to recharge
- Level Starter Kit includes:
- Travel pouch
- Soup spoon attachment
- Leveling handle
- Users can also order additional attachments separately (e.g. Fork, Soup Spoon)
