This soup spoon could make eating with Parkinson's disease incredibly easier. Titled the 'Liftware Spoon' by Lift labs, this spoon helps to balance a shaky hand and getting food to the mouth with minimal mess.

The 'Liftware Spoon' has a built-in microchip and sensors that cancel out movement made by the user's hand tremors. The spoon counters tremors up to two inches, making the act of eating much more enjoyable and less stressful.

This spoon's capabilities are not yet perfect, but greatly reduce the amount of tremor, spills and potential embarrassment. This spoon can last up to several days on a single charge and Lift labs plans to release interchangeable attachments for the base in the future, including a fork and key holder.

This spoon will make huge progressions for people living with Parkinson's disease.
