Multiple Sclerosis Tableware
Supporting independence - Tableware for MS patients
Eating and drinking independently with MS
Due to the coordination and movement disorders that often occur with multiple sclerosis, such as sensory disturbances, dysphagia, numbness or tingling in the arms, legs or trunk, eating and drinking independently becomes a great challenge for many MS patients, especially if the visual disturbances typical of MS also occur, which restrict contrast and sharp vision.
Eating and drinking aids with hidden features
The intelligent ORNAMIN multiple sclerosis tableware can be used intuitively and has supportive features hidden in the design, that aim to maintain independence. The eating and drinking aids look like ordinary tableware and not like classic care aids. Whether special plates with a sloped base and raised rim, non-slip plates and bowls, one-handed aids for eating with only one hand or for severe tremor.The special aids were developed together with people in need of care, occupational therapists and professional caregivers. They are an important everyday aid for MS patients, home caregivers as well as senior facilities, assisted living, retirement homes, nursing homes and hospitals.
The alternative to sippy cups and plate guards
Beak cups, plate guards, nose cut-out cups and dysphagia cups are often used in care. However, one disadvantage of classic care products is that their special features make them stand out clearly as 'disability dishes'. With the ORNAMIN eating and drinking aids, the supportive features are cleverly and invisibly hidden in the design. The ORNAMIN special cups make sippy cups with spouts or dysphagia drinking cups superfluous. A conically shaped inner cup in the ORNAMIN cups with drinking trick ensures that patients can drink easily and independently - even when lying down. The ORNAMIN special plates replace plate guards and non-slip mats, especially in cases of severe tremor. The non-slip, ergonomic ORNAMIN special cutlery functions like curved one-handed cutlery and, like all ORNAMIN care utensils, can be used with one hand.
