Photo of LIFTWARE Level and LIFTWARE Steady

by Verily Life Sciences

The LIFTWARE handles with spoon attachments are designed to help people with hand tremor or limited hand and arm mobility retain confidence and independence. LIFTWARE Steady uses sensors in the handle to detect movement or tremor and steadies the utensil automatically. LIFTWARE Level keeps a utensil at the angle needed to eat any meal despite involuntary movement. Both products increase independence with less spillage. Both handles can support spoon or fork attachments, both of which are dishwasher safe. The LIFTWARE handles and attachments were added to the AT Lending Library through support from the CT Tech Act.
