Meet Peg. Peg suffers from severe Rheumatoid arthritis in her hands. This renders her incapable of feeding herself with normal silverware. She wants to be independent, but due to the deformity in her hands she is unable to properly grasp and use a normal spoon.
Designing a new spoon was paramount. The spoon needed to be light weight, conform to her hand, thin and limit or eliminate spillage.
The final design was 3D printed in titanium which features a 3/4 inch space beneath the handle to give room for her fingers so she could pick up the utensil off the table. The head of the spoon is angled towards her so it requires far less twist of the wrist in order to use. A spork variant was also designed.
