In Recognition Of International Disability Awareness Day handSteady Announces Launch Of A New Cup Qu

handSteady is an innovative cup that makes drinking easy again for the 1 in 6 of the population who suffer from a health condition. The unique rotatable handle removes the need to twist your wrist, raise your elbow or lean your head back as far.

 
PRLog - Dec. 3, 2012 - KENILWORTH, U.K. -- Chris Peacock designed handSteady because a close family member was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. He could see how this would one day make drinking with a cup difficult and unsafe. Chris knew that as an inventor, he had to come up with a solution.

So Chris worked with 35 health professionals and 72 people with various health conditions around the UK to develop the handSteady drinking cup. Mary Ramsay from Inverness Scotland, who suffers from Essential Tremor (that affects 10 million in the United States and 1 million in the UK) says, “I can now drink a full cup of tea for the first time in my life. I honestly don’t know how I managed before handSteady.”

It was at IBM where Chris was first taken seriously as an inventor. He then went to the Royal College of Art to do a masters design engineering to develop his skills in this area. It was at the RCA that Chris started the handSteady project. Guys and St Thomas’ Charity are backing the project and it’s being produced in West Sussex, Britain, by a precision manufacturing company that ensure the product meets ISO9001 standards.

handSteady is available for free worldwide shipping from www.handsteady.com.
