When the arm function decreases, you will encounter various obstacles in the performance of your daily work. We eat every day and this can cause problems with a diminishing hand or arm function. For example, to bring the food to your mouth and to hold your cutlery well. To support you in this, we have developed several useful aids at Vitility.
With reduced mobility, it can be quite difficult to hold your cutlery correctly. We have handy cutlery in our product range for this. We have different types of spoons, knives, forks, teaspoons or complete cutlery sets. But what's special about these products? Take the spoons for example. You can bend the bendable spoons in any position you want. This allows you to bring the food from the plate to your mouth, without having to bend your wrist. Do you have trouble grasping a normal tablespoon? Then choose the spoon with a hand clip. You slide this easily over your hand so that you have the spoon firmly in your hand. We also have curved spoons and spoons with a thickened handle. This strengthens the grip and gives you a comfortable grip. Do you also need a teaspoon? With the different types of ergonomic teaspoons you can use your spoon independently again. The teaspoons are available in a bendable version and with a thickened or weighted handle.
The knives from Vitility comes in different shapes and sizes. We have knives with a thickened handle, weighted handle, a knife with a 90 degree angle and knives with other special handles. These knives are specially made to make less effort when cutting and to make it a lot more comfortable for the user.
The special forks from Vitility help you to eat without any problems. For many people it goes without saying, but unfortunately for people with physical disabilities, this daily activity can be difficult. We have the forks in special versions such as: a bendable fork, a fork with clip, a curved fork and weighted forks.
Are you looking for a complete cutlery set? Vitility has cutlery sets for various physical limitations. For example, the handy Alzheimer's set. This complete cutlery set is for older people and people with Alzheimer's. The cutlery consists of a red plate with a raised edge, anti-slip bottom, a red egg cup with suction cup, a red drinking cup with spout (content 250 ml), a red cutlery set (fork, spoon and knife) and a yellow anti-slip underlay (40 x 30 cm). Due to the bright colors and large contrasts, the Alzheimer patient sees the cutlery better, which means that he will eat and drink better. Do you have reduced strength or motor skills? Then view our 4-piece dinner set. This set includes a plate, knife and a bendable spoon and fork. The plate has a handy raised edge that prevents food from sliding or sliding off the plate.
Do you have the right cutlery to be able to eat carefree but not yet a handy plate? Vitility has developed special plates to easily get the food from your plate to the cutlery. A common problem for people with a condition is that the edges of a standard plate are too low. A raised edge makes it easier to slide your food onto the cutlery. It is also possible to continue to use your tableware by raising the plate edge. If you have reduced motor skills or arm / shoulder function, it takes longer to empty your plate. This means that your food also cools down. We have special warming plates to prevent your food from cooling down too quickly. In the edges of the plate are blue or red caps, which you can take out, you can then put in hot or cold water depending on the temperature you want. We have these plates in red or blue and as a plate and bowl.
With these aids, eating becomes a lot more comfortable and more enjoyable. Do you have a question about a product or do you need advice? Then contact our product specialists.
