A cup designed to make drinking easier
Drinking should be a simple task. However, the cognitive and various sensory impairments of Alzheimer’s may result in a variety of drinking issues. People affected by disease can drink less than they should and accidents with spills and tipped cups are common. The Eatwell adaptive tableware set offers tableware especially designed to let people with Alzheimer's or other related diseases eat by themselves in an independent way. This cup is easy to handle and help reduce spills.
How does Eatwell help?
The Eatwell adapted cup improves the independence of our loved ones while drinking:
- Eatwell is the result of four years of research and design.
- Each detail is backed by research or evidence shown during the design process.
- People in the early or moderate stages of disease who experiment drinking issues
- People affected by tremors or frequently spill their drinks
Eatwell is an American company founded by Shao Yao. While studying in design, Shao Yao saw her grandma struggle with feeding herself due to her Alzheimer's. This is the reason she created Eatwell which started as a school project. Eatwell won the Stanford Design Challenge in 2014 among 52 other teams from 15 different countries.
