My Spoon eating aid

- an electronic aid that enables people without arm and hand function to eat by themselves

User eating with My Spoon

The food is divided into bite-sized pieces in a tray with compartments. The user controls the spoon and fork with a joystick. After the first signal MY SPOON picks up the food with the fork and spoon, which work together and move between the compartments of the tray. The fork firmly holds the food on the spoon without crushing it, which minimizes spilled food. When the spoon turns toward the user’s mouth the spoon is horizontal. The spoon stops at a preset location in front of the user’s mouth until the user touches it with his mouth. My Spoon can be used for almost any solid food that is in suitable bite-sized chunks or smaller. Soup and beverages are served in a mug with a straw. The holder is attached with a clamp on the edge of the table.

Users comments
The user feels that MySpoon is very helpful when he wants to be alone with his wife at meals. He doesn’t use it every day. It’s easy to learn to use it.
