Our inspiration came from Ben, who is a family friend with a severe hand tremor. He struggled a lot with eating and could not afford existing solutions on the market which cost upwards of £150.

We invent a mechanism which reduces the effect of a tremor by up to 70% while costing significantly less than existing products. Unlike competitors, this mechanism uses no costly electronics and is entirely mechanical instead!
