Customers may be able to use a third party shipping company in the US to post to Australian addresses.

General Details

Method of Use

Sensors in the Liftware handle detect a person's tremor, and the device responds using motors to move the spoon opposite the tremor. The spoon can discern motion from hand tremor from other types of motion, allowing it to respond to just the tremor while preserving the user's intended motion. Liftware allows the patient's hand to shake while stabilising food in the spoon.
