Special spoon counteracts hand tremors

Would you buy a $300 spoon? If you or a loved one has Parkinson's or any motor skill impairment--yes, you might.

My father's half sister had Parkinson's.  Once, when she was visiting, her fork tapped on the plate during the meal and my little brother started tapping on his high chair tray with his fork. We laughed, but it was awkward.

Tremors can also result in spills and embarrassment.

Now we have the handSteady cup and the Liftware spoon.

These feature small movements of the hand, much as your smartphone stabilizes to take a picture.

The Liftware spoon reduces the effect of tremors by 75%.

Sounds like a good idea if you are living with motor skills problems.

I am all about the work-arounds.
