    Lightbulb Spoon for shaky hands

    Hi, I'm here on behalf of a friend with cerebral palsy. We discovered this spoon... I wonder if it could assist more people who have difficulty eating? They're crowdfunding to take it to market - more info here. http://kck.st/1qUrMIH

    It's got a deeper spoon head to reduce spilling. What do you think?

    I'm going to cross post this to a forum for folks with MS. Hope you don't mind!

    wow I know how hard it is sometimes to feed when hands are affected. I struggled to feed myself in the initial stages of rheumatoid arthritis These seem to be an ideal adaptation. Hopefully they will get the funds needed to market it.

    Noticed today that Google announced it had acquired Lift Labs who make spoons and other adaptive equipment for people with shaky hands.

    The blurb looks impressive but at $295 (about £185) for the basic kit its not exactly cheap.
