MEET MEALTIME PARTNER: A REVOLUTIONARY DEVICE THAT FEEDS THOSE WHO CANNOT FEED THEMSELVES!

Posted by: Laurence Harmon on 1/26/2009

Attention: Caregivers for people unable to feed themselves!  From the world of assistive technology, here's the MEALTIME PARTNER:

Pictured above, the Mealtime Partner serves various table foods--peas, mashed potatioes, breakfast cereal, pudding, and more--that are usually eaten with a spoon.  Other, larger foods (e.g., meats, pizza, salads) can also be served when cut into bite-sized pieces.

Here are some of the benefits of the "Partner":

  • Users can experience the pleasure of independent living as they feed themselves;
  • They can select their own food--and control the pace of eating, which reduces the risks of aspiration and reflux;
  • Caregivers benefit from the reduced effort that is required to provide meals and snacks;
  • Operation is very reliable--there's a one-year warranty for parts and labor; and
  • It's accompanied by a training DVD that provides information about setup and use.

Here are some features of the Partner:

  • It can be mounted and positioned to meet a variety of user needs, including wheelchair use:
  • It easily serves most ordinary table foods--as well as liquids (soups, cereals, purees);
  • It controls the quantity of food on the spoon, and the bottom of the spoon is wiped, which minimizes drips;
  • Three bowls of food can be served simultaneously, and the bowls can be quickly and easily interchanged; and
  • The Partner can serve an entire day's meals before requiring recharge.
