Smart spoon helps stabilize Parkinson's tremors 2014-10-03 08:35:08 / CONFERENCES

The Liftware spoon constantly steadies itself thanks to an embedded computer that takes the motion signals detected by the sensors, identifies the user's tremor, and then moves the spoon in the opposite direction of that tremor. The company reports that lab tests showed a more than 70 percent reduction in tremors.

And while it won't be the first utensil on the market to help the people with tremors eat with dignity. Many existing utensils, plates, mugs, and "crumb catchers" are pretty old tech, focusing on ergonomics and extra hand and finger holds.
