Liftware is a suite of electronic, assistive devices designed to help people with mobility challenges eat more easily and independently. It includes Level, a self-leveling handle that automoatically bends its flexible gray joint, keeping the attachment level as one’s hand or arm twists, bends, or moves, and Steady, a motion-stabilizing spoon that counteracts hand tremor. Both devices offer a selection of attachments for eating.
