What are adaptive utensils?
Designed to help make eating more enjoyable and less of a task, adaptive eating utensils are silverware made especially for those with physical or developmental disabilities. Ideal for people with conditions like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, ALS, strokes, tremors, hand deformities, poor fine motor skills, weak grips, and even arthritis, these utensils do much more than simply ensure one is properly nourished. Where the power truly lies is with the user themselves. By giving people the freedom and independence to feed themselves, you're providing a boost of confidence that everyone deserves and reminding people that all bodies are abled bodies.
