Handsteady Drinking Cup
HandSteady looks like a ‘normal’ fine bone china cup but is lightweight and has a unique Rotatable Handle for up to four fingers and comes with a Hidden Lid with a drink and straw hole. It’s dishasher and microwave safe.
Here’s a quick step by step guide to show you how it works.
You can hold the Rotatable Handle at any comfortable angle, and gravity will keep the cup upright and steady.
This is helpful if you have limited dexterity or weakness in your wrist, as it enables you to avoid spills and drink without bending your wrist.
Tilts by pivoting
You can tilt handSteady by holding it by the handle close to your mouth, then pivoting it with your mouth, thumb, or other hand.
You get more control over the liquid flow because one hands takes the weight of the cup and drink through the handle whilst you control the tilt of the cup with your other hand, thumb or mouth controls the liquid flow.
Keeps drinks hot and in your cup
handSteady cups with a Hidden Lid accessory. It is discrete (you can hardly see the lid), keeps drinks hotter for longer and reduces liquid flow and spills.
The lid is easy to insert and remove from the cup has a drink hole that you can also use with a straw to extend its use.
Increases your dexterity
The Rotatable Handle removes the need to bend your wrist or raise your arm. Simply fix your wrist and the lift the cup by bending your elbow. Ideal if you have wrist pain or weakness.
You can also get more comfort for your fingers, wrists, arms and shoulders because the cup is lightweight (109g / 3.8oz) and the large sized handle spreads the weight across your whole hand.
Improves your stability
If you have tremor, the Rotatable Handle can be held at 90 degrees with your palm facing up or down. In this position your forearm can’t twist any further, so tremor can be less for many people.
The Rotatable Handle frees you to keep your elbows anchored into your side or on a surface throughout the drinking process for additional stability..
Gravity can self-stabilise the cup if you align the Rotatable Handle with forearm tremor.
If you hold handSteady with two hands, the impact of tremor is reduced on the cup from the hand holding the Rotatable Handle, which gives you more control over the cup.
Many people with reduced balance and tremor hold the Rotatable Handle upside down to lower the centre of gravity and increase stability.
