Users with conditions in which upper-extremity weakness or poor motor controls are present, including multiple sclerosis (MS), and cerebral palsy (CP), may benefit from a portable self-feeder available through North Coast Medical, which targets improved self-feeding and tremor control.
The Stable Slide feeder is designed to support the user’s arm throughout the entire eating motion. The product aims to reduce muscular activity necessary for self-feeding and provides tactile biofeedback for tremor dampening and control. The company notes that the Stable Glide also features a roof attachment that can be used in order to assist in keeping the arm on the slide for added safety and tactile feedback.
The Stable Slide is secured with a C-clamp and offers users the ability to make height and angle adjustments by hand and with the product’s included hex wrench.
