Here at Medoris, we understand how difficult eating can be for the disabled, elderly and others with specific needs. They may have had an operation, they may be suffering from muscle weakness and have problems with co-ordination, or they may just have moments of tiredness where holding cutlery causes them pain.
Whatever the health issue, our aim is to help remove some of that discomfort by making eating more of a pleasure.
That’s why the Splayd Cutlery: Combined Knife, Fork & Spoon with Detachable Handle is one of our most useful and best-selling eating utensils.
It’s simple to use, as it cleverly combines the functions of a knife, fork and spoon - all in one. Made from stainless steel, this adaptive cutlery has an overall spoon shape, but with four fork spokes and two hard, flat edges on either side, suitable for cutting through soft food. It’s also symmetrical, meaning that it’s appropriate for left and right handed users, as well as people with use of one hand.
It’s been designed with a larger handle than normal and has a ribbed grip. It’s larger size means it sits comfortable in the palm of the hand, without the need to over-squeeze and over-strain the fingers. The grey foam handle provides a large and non-slip shape, making this comfort grip cutlery easier to hold and control even when wet.
The Splayd weighs only 40 grams, so not only is it recommended for medical use as a solution for feeding difficulties following or during arm treatment, but it’s also light enough for confident, comfortable, independent eating. An opportunity that doesn’t exist with conventional and heavier cutlery.
What’s more, the detachable handle means that it can be easily twisted off and on for cleaning by either themselves or their carers.
All-in-all, this clever, Splayd cutlery for disabled, elderly and infirm can help reduce stress, ease pain and prevent further muscle ache. We call it ’caring cutlery’, as we hope it makes every day just that little bit easier.
