Innovative and dignified supported tableware system to assist children and those with difficulty in eating
Summary:
A UK based inventor has developed a supported tableware system that prevents slip and tipping and also keeps food warmer for longer.

This will include the care sector, rehabilitation, hospitals and independent living situations. The product is ready for market and partners are sought for investment and or licensing agreements.
Description:
Eating from a normal plate or bowl can be a challenge for those with certain conditions such as cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. A UK inventor has addressed this problem with a plate system that prevents slipping / tipping of the plate and yet maintains an element of dignity since they look and perform in a similar way to normal tableware. Individuals who need assistance when dining often eat much more slowly causing food to cool. This product also integrates a heat pad which keeps food warmer for longer.
The product has been developed and trialed with positive results. Partners are now sought to help get the product to market.
The company is seeking a financial partner that may come from the healthcare sector or a tooling company. The inventor may also consider licensing the intellectual property behind the innovation to an organisation wishing to manufacture or incorporate this innovation into their own range of products.
