7 TOP INNOVATIONS FOR SENIORS LIFTWARE What is it? STABILIZING EATING UTENSIL


How will it transform the aging experience? Individuals with Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis or anyone else who may experience hand tremors, can now eat more easily without spilling food thanks to the Liftware device. The handle detaches and can be fitted with a fork, a regular spoon, and a soup spoon. It handle contains mi- croprocessors and motion sensors programmed to calculate about 1,000 times per second how much it should move to compensate for its user’s shaking hand. Liftware allows the attached utensil to shake 70 percent less than the hand holding it, according to a peer-reviewed clinical study of


the product funded by a National Institutes of Health grant and published in the journal Movement Disorders. More details of the study are available on the Liftware website. The device comes with a charger and a storage pouch so that


users can take the kit with them wherever they go; the rechargeable battery lasts for several days. The attachments are dishwasher-safe, but the stabilizing handle must be cleaned with mild detergent or antibacterial wipes. The device was created by mechanical engineer Anupam Pathak


and his team. Google bought the company in 2014 and it is now part of the Google X research division. Learn more: Visit eatwellset.com or email eatwellset@gmail.com
