Neater Eater Manual Version & Adapted Version
The Neater Eater Manual Version is a mechaincal feeder designed for use by individuals with severe physical disabilities which make self feeding difficult. The unit features adjustable springs that help the user to smoothly guide the spoon down into the plate and up to the mouth. Adjustable stops prevent the spoon from moving past the plate or too close to the user, and stop the spoon at the right height for the user's mouth. The plate is turned by the user. In the Adapted Version, an adjustable handle allows the spoon to be used with relatively small movement of the user's hands. A plate turner wheel enables the user to turn the plate without lifting their hand from their lap. Tall spacers under the base help reduce the distance the spoon has to travel from the plate to the user's mouth. Both versions are available in a right-hand or left-hand models.
