Tableware for Dementia Sufferers
US-based student Sha Yao has designed a tableware set that includes 20 different features to help dementia sufferers eat and drink more independently.
The tableware, which has recently reached its funding goal on crowdfunding website Indiegogo, comprises a yellow set for consuming solid foods and a red set for soups and broths. Each bowl features a slanted basin that allows for ease of movement.
The spoons come in left- and right-handed versions and are designed to work with the shape of the bowls in order to make scooping food easier. The handles are curved to perfectly fit in a person’s hand. The tableware sets also encompass anti-tipping cups that feature a wide base to help prevent spillages and include attachable lids that can be used with straws.
