The Palm Cuff may help a patient be more independent at mealtimes. It is an elasticised band with a long pocket to help hold cutlery.
The Palm Cuff is a simple, elasticised Hook & Loop Tape band and is placed around the palm of the hand with the opening ready to hold a spoon, fork, toothbrush, pen, etc.
Some patients may need help to use the Cuff. Once mastered, it may not be necessary for a carer to spend the mealtime feeding the person.
The holder may also help to hold a pen or pencil.
Only cutlery up to approximately 15mm / 0.5″ wide will fit in the pocket.
Custom-made sizes are available on request.
