Hand Steady cup and wineglass holder

The invention was developed with user collaboration and designer Chris Peacock won an award from Help the Aged (see HTA sidebar link).

‘My hands shake all the time’
By Jane Elliott, BBC News health reporter

Tonia Wells has a hereditary hand tremor in both hands.

Her condition is getting progressively more pronounced – and she says it is dominating her life.

But what she, and many others, find the most difficult thing to cope with is their inability to hold a cup steady.

However, a graduate from the Royal College of Arts’ design school could have the answer – the Hand Steady.

By holding drinks in a rubber grip that rotates, the device keeps the cup steady while people are drinking.

“I found it very good. There are not many people who design things for hand tremor and something like this is really fantastic for us.

The invention works by holding drinks in a rubber grip that rotates freely about two horizontal axis by means of a gimble mechanism. A comfortable ergonomically designed handle fits all sizes of hands, attaches to the gimble and has a catch to limit the rotation of the gimble, thus enabling pouring drinks into your mouth.
