“These special dishes and cups are not only helpful for children and adults with disabilities, but also for any babies and toddlers just learning to eat and drink independently.”

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined forces with Freedom Dinnerware, a company specializing in the manufacture of adaptive tableware, to help bring these products to a larger consumer base. Designed to inspire independence in eating and drinking, Freedom Dinnerware has created dishes and cups for adults and children who, for a variety of reasons, suffer with uncontrolled movement and disabilities that restrict the hand movement necessary for eating and drinking independently. This adaptive tableware is perfect for folks with hand tremors, paralysis, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer's, muscular dystrophy, stroke, autism and arthritis.
Freedom Dinnerware is very different from other adaptive tableware on the market in that it really, truly stays in place. Their patented non-skid, no-spill suction pad base attaches to a flat surface when you press down on it, and will not move if you bump or hit it. The dishes simply screw into this base, like putting a lid on a jar, until it is securely tight. Additional features such as the extended rims, built-in dividers and special scoop angles make this the most popular adaptive tableware available today. They also have special cup holders available; some, like the dishware, attach to the vacuum base, while others are intended for use in wheelchairs and will actually fold down to get through doorways and tighter spaces. Strong arms hold the cup firmly in place, but gently release the cup when an individual wants to have it. All of the Freedom Dinnerware dishes and cups are microwavable, except for the vacuum bases.
Rehabmart hopes to bring more awareness to the disabled and handicapped communities about this adaptive tableware by offering these products on their website. “We are proud to carry the Freedom Dinnerware products for our customers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “These special dishes and cups are not only helpful for children and adults with disabilities, but also for any babies and toddlers just learning to eat and drink independently.” Any parent who has seen their young child purposely or accidentally fling their food plate, bowl or cup across the room can also certainly appreciate the value of adaptive tableware!
