For a patient with Parkinson’s, a task as simple as feeding themselves is an overwhelming challenge. Losing control over their motor abilities can mean losing their freedom as individual and their dignity as a person. To help patients with their tremors, Anupam Pathak, founder of Lift Labs, created the Liftware.

The Liftware spoon is the first of the kitchen utensils to be created of its kind. Using the technology found in digital cameras and smart phones, the Liftware works motion sensors to counteract tremors and stabilize the hand.

Unfortunately, the Liftware is nothing cheap, quoted at a steep $299.95. But for patients living with the severe effects of Parkinson’s, its a small price to pay for freedom.
