Buy Adaptive Utensils for Elderly | Assistive Eating Devices

What are Adaptive Utensils?

Adaptive eating utensils are ergonomically designed to assist people with physical or developmental disabilities to eat comfortably. People with arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, tremors, post-stroke recovery, grasping difficulties, and others with limited mobility have trouble feeding themselves with standard cutlery. Adaptive cutlery is a simple solution to help overcome these difficulties. Adaptive eating equipment can bring back independence, comfort, and stability at mealtimes and enhance nutritional health.

Your physical condition does not have to interfere with your quality of life. Rehab Store carries numerous good grip utensils to help you eat your meal independently. We have adaptive utensils for elderly like spoons, forks, and knives with special features and shapes to assist people with a weak grasp or restricted finger and wrist movement.
