Adaptive Cutlery helps make dining easy and enjoyable. For people with limited dexterity and tremors, we have a range of adapted cutlery that can help to keep control and independence while eating.
Things to consider when buying cutlery
- Dexterity – can you grip your cutlery securely?
- Steadiness – will weighted cutlery make eating easier for you?
- Colour – will this make eating simpler?
- Angled – do you want extra support to eat tidily?
- Do you eat one-handed?
Weighted cutlery is helpful to people who have tremors or conditions such as Parkinson’s. It has a weighted handle to give the user more control while eating. While heavier than the norm, weighted cutlery is carefully designed to be comfortable and easy to use.

Bendable & Angled Cutlery
Angled cutlery simplifies one-handed dining for people with lessened control of one arm / hand. The rounded style of the cutlery allows users to scoop their food onto the spoon or fork one-handed without causing strain.
Good Grip Cutlery
For added ease, our good grip cutlery has an ergonomic handle designed to make eating that much easier. The style allows the user to keep good grip on the cutlery, even if the handle is slippery. Additions such as grooved handles are especially useful for people living with dexterity-limiting conditions such as arthritis.
