Liftware: bring the joy back to mealtime

Individuals with mild to severe tremors may often struggle performing tasks requiring fine motor skills such as eating.  As a result, they may end up with food everywhere except their mouths.  Today’s medicine offers many promises to such challenges, but some individuals may prefer to not take medication if it can be avoided; and those who do don’t notice any improvement after taking the medication.

With Liftware technology, individuals with Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis or a number of other tremor-causing disorders are able to cancel their tremors by 70%.  Upon picking up the Liftware spoon, the smart sensors in the handle detect the user’s hand tremor, which quickly respond to the tremor and steady what’s being held.  As a result, users are able to shift attention away from spilling and onto the people they’re with–allowing them to enjoy mealtime again.
