A motion-detecting spoon makes coordination possible for those with the disease.

The Lifeware spoon is a new utility that might make life easier for people suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s is a neurological disorder that leads to uncontrollable shaking, making coordination extremely difficult. Designed to counter the tremors people suffering, the spoon has a microchip and sensors built in to cancel out the movement, making it easier to carry on with simple tasks such as eating.

Even though the results are not perfect, the Lifeware spoon is a huge improvement over the regular spoon. The spoon can counter tremors measuring up to 2-inches. Stabilizing technology installed at the rear end of the spoon is supported by a rechargeable battery that can last several days on a charge.
