Eatwell - adapted spoon
A spoon designed to make meal time easier
Eating should be a simple task. However, the cognitive and various sensory impairments of Alzheimer’s may result in a variety of feeding issues. People affected by disease can eat less than they should and accidents with spilled food and tipped cups are common. The Eatwell adapted tableware set offers tableware especially designed to let people with Alzheimer's or other related diseases eat by themselves in an independent way. These spoons are designed in a way to match the curve of the Eatwell bowls to allow smooth and easy movements.
