Short Description

Lightweight cutlery that requires minimal effort to use. It has long thin handles to allow a comfortable grip in the hollow between the thumb and index finger. The long handles reduce the need to lift the arm as high as with normal length cutlery. The underside is gently rounded to prevent point pressure. Range includes fork, spoon, knife and dessert spoon.

Additional Info

More Details

* This cutlery was developed for people with reduced strength and mobility in their arms and hands who need support for their hands and lower arms when eating and therefore usually use a writing grip when holding cutlery
* Rounded handles allow good pressure distribution, minimum movement and "hold between the fingers" grip
* The front of the fork is conical to take the strain off the finger
* The knife blade has a sharp serrated edge to facilitate cutting. It also has a flat support area on top that makes it stable and easy to control
* Dishwasherproof
