New Stay Bowl from Maddak Helps Preserve Dignity and Independence
Date:1/22/2013

Wayne, NJ (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

Lack of upper body and/or upper extremity control can make it difficult for some people to control the movement of the hand to the mouth while eating. This can lead to an inability or decreased ability for a person to self-feed and live independently. Maddak Inc.’s new Stay Bowl provides the support necessary to make this motion more controlled.

Kathleen Hanek, Director of Product Management for Maddak, U.S. manufacturer of Ableware® Aids for Daily Living, tells us “The Stay Bowl has a long handle that curves downward to rest on the table - or any other surface. Holding onto the handle of the bowl while eating, provides trunk support and upper body stability allowing the user to eat with more controlled movements. The handle also helps to stabilize the bowl on the table.” In addition she tells us “the non-skid bottom prevents the bowl from slipping and helps to minimize spills.”

Lightweight and easy to handle, the Stay Bowl has two drinking spouts and a lifting rim. The spouts allow for a controlled flow of liquid from the bowl to the mouth and will accommodate left and right handed users. The lifting rim, opposite the handle, provides extra stabilization when lifting the bowl to the mouth and when transporting the bowl. “These features”, according to Hanek, “enhance the users control and increase the ability to self-feed.”

The Stay Bowl is available in two color combinations – white/light gray and blue/black – and has a 16 oz. capacity allowing for ¾” from the fluid to the rim of the bowl. Made of durable polycarbonate the Stay Bowl is microwave and dishwasher safe, scratch and shatter resistant and latex free. The suggested retail value of the bowl is $12.95.
