Eating Aids

Patients recovering from hand, wrist, or shoulder procedures can use specially designed aids for eating at mealtime. Eating aids are designed to be over-sized for easy grasping, and to be flexible to minimize the effort required to use them. Aids for eating include special “nosey” cups, designed to allow patients to drink from a cup without extending or flexing the shoulder joints, and are ideal for those with limited mobility due to injury or a chronic condition. Eating help products like extra large forks, spoons, and knives are invaluable medical supplies for patients experiencing difficulty reaching, grasping, or using utensils. Eating aids can be used at home, or in a nursing home or care facility. Offering your patients the right combination of eating help products promotes well being and independence. Aids for eating are just like typical utensils and cups, they have just been modified slightly to accommodate your patients’ needs.
