Utensils and kitchen equipment for people with disabilities and/or reduced mobility

Posted on 20 September, 2018 By In Daily Living , Elderly With no comments

People who may have lost mobility and dexterity in one of their hands due to an accident or illness may face many problems while in the kitchen. Only people who are going through this problem can understand how serious it is. Imagine cutting an apple with just one hand, as the other hand is barely mobile. To solve this problem, many companies have manufactured various adaptive equipment that make it easier for one person to work in the kitchen without the help of others.

Cutting boards are ideal for cutting fruits, vegetables and even for spreading a piece of bread.

In many cases they combine four rubber suction legs that hold the plate in place while working with one hand. Two food protectors prevent food from slipping along the edges and two ears keep food safe during cutting.

 

Tilting knives are also ideal for people with one-handed use. Simply apply gentle pressure to the handle with your entire hand and swing back and forth, and the blade cuts food with ease. Specialized cutting equipment will allow one-handed people to work more efficiently and independently in the kitchen.

Peelers and containers

Peeling potatoes, apples or cucumbers is certainly an impossible task for people with only one hand, but now there are products available to facilitate that task. For example, the automatic peeling plate holds the fruit or vegetable with its two sharp teeth and all you have to do is peel.

In addition, containers for pots and pans are indispensable for cooking in a kitchen. Suction legs secure the tray holder to the stove and the wire frame holds the pot handle while stirring food, preventing the pan from accidentally turning and causing spills. These adaptable holders make it easy to prepare and cook food with one hand.

Anti-slip mats

The double non-slip surface of these mats provides a secure grip on your kitchen counter, table or desk. Whether you’re using a mixer, eating, or writing a letter, these mats are invaluable for one-handed people. They keep paper from slipping while writing and hold bowls and plates while preparing food or eating with one hand.

Crockery

Aspiration tableware was designed for people with only one hand in mind. These non-slip plates and bowls adhere securely to the table allowing one-handed people to remove food without the help of a helper or caregiver.
