SAN FRANCISCO – Verily Life Sciences (formerly Google Life Sciences) has launched the Liftware Level, a smart utensil designed to help individuals with limited hand and arm mobility hold a fork or spoon at the angle needed to feed themselves. “Designed and developed with significant input from physicians and potential users, we hope this new device will turn the everyday task of eating into a more pleasurable experience for more people living with movement disorders,” said Anupam Pathak, creator of Liftware and technical lead at Verily. The Liftware Level handle, combined with a spoon or fork attachment, is able to recognize the position of the hand at all times and intelligently adjusts the angle of the utensil so users can eat without fear of spilling. Liftware Level is the second product in the Liftware family. The Liftware Steady is a computerized stabilizing handle and a selection of similarly utensil attachments designed to counteract the effects of hand tremors.
