Benefeat Tableware for people with nerve disorders

benefeatDesigners  I-Ting Chan & Ting-Yin Yeh have created a complete tableware setting for people with cerebral palsy or other nerve control disorders. A lot of work is done in this area that relies on technology and gadgets rather than good design (sadly I’ve noted this more than once) and this set has a lot of good design.
The Benefeat spoon can be adjusted to any angle and has an ergonomically shaped silicon handle. The rest of the setting considers the angle of the bowl or plate, non-slip pads, anti-spill designs and the intent to allow the user easier access to the food to feed themselves.
Benefeat is a 2013 red dot award: design concept winner and hopefully will be commercially produced.
