We Connect Oklahomans with Disabilities to Assistive Technology (AT)

August AT Inventory Highlights
Assistive Technology (AT) can be used in a variety of ways, and for a variety of purposes. It can support people in carrying out everyday tasks and activities, enhance their safety, support their social participation, monitor their health, and more. This month, we're featuring AT that helps users carry out daily living tasks!

ELISpoon

ELISpoon enables independent eating for people with limited hand and arm mobility. The ELISpoon is available in 2 different sizes, the soup spoon and the teaspoon suitable for children and adults. The spoon has a stabilizing technology that includes a counterweight and rotation axes to keep the spoon bowl level regardless of how your hand or arm twists, bends, or moves, preventing food spillage.
 
It is made of strong, lightweight materials. There are no electrical components or batteries, making it easy to clean and carry anywhere.

Meal Lifter™

The Meal Lifter™ is an eating aid designed to raise a dinner plate several inches in height to reduce the distance from the plate to the mouth for self-feeding. The Meal Lifter™ is made of durable molded polypropylene that is dishwasher safe and comes with a 9” round ceramic plate is designed to fit the Meal Lifter™ perfectly.
 
The eating aid measures 4.25 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide at its base and weighs approximately 0.75 pounds. All you have to do is rest the included plate (or any other 9-inch plate) on top of the device.

Flipper Remote

The Flipper Remote is an easy-to-use large button universal remote that combines TV and cable/satellite controls into one easy-to-use device. The TV remote features large, tactile-friendly buttons with full-function labels, favorites channel programming, and a hidden sliding door to conceal set-up buttons to prevent accidental reprogramming.
 
The Flipper Remote works with most providers, including AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Time Warner, DirecTV, and Charter.

Clip Different

The ClipDifferent Pro is an automated nail clipper for people of all abilities to perform nail care. The nail clipper is designed to assist a person with limited mobility, pain, low or no vision, limb loss, or difference.
 
This device allows for one-handed use and prevents skin from coming into contact with the trimming mechanism. The device also catches the nail clippings in a drawer, eliminating any mess. Each trimmer contains a high-capacity rechargeable battery that can last months between charges.
