Many people who suffer from Parkinson's Disease can't stop trembling, making eating difficult. This wonderful spoon invented by Anupam Pathak and his colleagues at Lift Labs offers a partial solution. Stabilizing technology inside it cancels out the trembling so that the spoon remains stable compared to the hand holding it. Clinical trials have shown that it cancels out up to 70% of shaking.
