Spoon For Shaky Hands

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Creativity for Good (White Pencil) / Design - Not for Profit / 2016

Grant has cerebral palsy, which causes his hands to shake and makes it very difficult to use conventional cutlery. He approached 4c Design to help design a spoon that would enable him to eat without spilling food.

The solution came through working with the shakes and not trying to counter them, simplifying the design to a single moulding. This made it both durable and low cost.

The project was done pro-bono as part of 4c’s internship scheme and has now been recognised as a solution for other conditions such as Parkinson’s and essential tremors.
