Special Needs Utensils
Special needs utensils allow individuals with physical and/or developmental disabilities to eat meals comfortably. Our spoons, forks, knives, and other common utensils are adapted to meet the needs of those with a range of impairments and difficulties. For instance, weighted utensils help stabilize the hands of those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, arthritis, and similar afflictions. The design of these curved utensils assist those who struggle with fine motor skills and hand-to-mouth feeding. You can also find various grip aids that make grasping utensils easier.
Adaptive utensils and flatware provide many useful options for adults and children with special needs who want to feel more independent during mealtimes.
