The Meal Lifter Dining Aid
is a simple platform that raises a dinner plate several inches, reducing the distance from table to the user's mouth. Caregivers will find this new eating aid assists individuals with uncoordinated movements and promotes dining with dignity.
The Meal Lifter Dining Aid provides a sanitary, secure and dignified alternative to using books or magazines. The platform raises the dinner plate several inches, so the distance from the plate to mouth is shortened. Users who have difficulty dining independently due to decreased range of motion, endurance, or uncoordinated movements may find this adapted dining aid helpful. The platform is easy to use, simply rest a 9 inch plate on the top. Rather than lifting their arm, the user simply pivots on their elbow to move food from the plate to their mouth. The decreased distance makes it easier for users to feed themselves. The platform increases visibility of the plate for users with low vision. This adapted dining aid helps users with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, as well as all individuals who have difficulty eating independently due to age, injury, frailty or other physical disabilities to increase their dining independence. The Meal Lifter is made of durable molded polypropylene that is dishwasher safe and easy to clean. The dining platform measures 4.25 inches high, 10.5 inches wide at its base and weighs approximately 3/4 lbs. The Meal Lifter Dining Aid allows users to increase dining independence, achieve easier motion between hand and mouth, and helps minimize food spillage.
NOTE: The Meal Lifter Dining Aid is designed specifically to accommodate a 9 inch round plate, which is NOT included. The Maddak Inner Lip Plate CMI74531 and the Skidtrol Non-Skid Bowl CMI74504 both work well with the platform.
