“Not only is this tableware helpful for children and adults with disabilities, or for individuals with aging-related issues, but it is also absolutely perfect for babies and toddlers just learning how to eat and drink independently."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution alliance with Freedom Dinnerware to offer their adaptive tableware for the elderly and disabled to a larger consumer audience. With a determined focus on inspiring eating and drinking independence, Freedom Dinnerware designs and manufactures special dishes and cups for adults and children who are unable to control the hand movements necessary for drinking and eating independently with regular tableware. Many individuals, for a variety of reasons, have a very difficult time with feeding themselves, and this adaptive tableware is perfect for users with paralysis, hand tremors, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, stroke recovery, autism, muscular dystrophy and arthritis.
What sets Freedom Dinnerware above their competitors is that their adaptive tableware really, truly stays in place. Using their patented no-spill, non-skid suction pad base which attaches to a flat surface when it is pressed down, these dishes and cups will not move if hit or bumped. Like putting a lid on a jar, the dishes simply screw into this base to form a secure fit. Freedom Dinnerware's additional innovations highlight extended rims, special scooping angles and built-in dividers. They have also developed special cup holders with this patented vacuum base, along with cup configurations to specifically be used with wheelchairs. The wheelchair cup assembly features strong arms that hold the cup firmly in place, but will gently release the cup when the user wants to have it, along with fold-down capabilities to ease transitions through doorways and tight spaces.
Excluding the vacuum bases, all of the Freedom Dinnerware dishes and cups are microwavable. “We are proud to introduce more consumers to this amazing adaptive tableware from Freedom Dinnerware,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Not only is this tableware helpful for children and adults with disabilities, or for individuals with aging-related issues, but it is also absolutely perfect for babies and toddlers just learning how to eat and drink independently. Any parent who has witnessed their child either accidentally or purposely fling their plate, bowl or cup across the room, or onto the floor, will certainly be able to appreciate this invaluable, adaptive tableware!”
