Manual Eating Aid
The manually controlled Neater Eater can be tailored to individual needs; from people with weak arms to those with a strong tremor.
This manual feeding aid was initially designed to ‘smooth out’ essential tremors associated with ataxia.
The new design has the capacity to provide solutions to a very wide range of clients with differing challenges. We also provide a electronic programmable Neater Eater Robotic, which is for users with more limited dexterity, and can be used by anyone who can chew and swallow. Take a look here.
The new design has also been developed with aesthetics in mind; the new baseboard is slimline. It clamps onto the table, and can be easily moved around.
The Neater Eater includes features such as a specially designed tilting mechanism, which allows for the spoon to tilt up and down to scoop food from the plate easier. Our included, specially designed plates also help with this.
A choice of cutlery is also offered, which clips on, stays level and raises to mouth height. The lifting is aided by internal springs and the height of the equipment can be adjusted very easily.
Who Can Use It?
This equipment can be used by people with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, head injuries, spinal injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, muscular dystrophies, limb amputations, ataxia, strokes, Parkinson’s disease, learning difficulties and many others.
