handSteady stays upright and tilts by pivoting
handSteady stays upright and tilts by pivoting

Read this article to discover how you and your loved ones can use handSteady to:

  • Increase comfort in your fingers, wrist and neck when drinking
  • Stop spills and hold your cup steady despite tremor and reduced balance
  • Keep your cup upright and tilt with control despite weakness and limited dexterity

Why I invented this life changing product

A close family member has Parkinson’s. When he was first diagnosed, I could see his tremor causing cups he held to shake uncontrollably, making drinking less safe and less enjoyable.

As an inventor I wanted to do everything I could to make life easier for him and others affected by life impacting health conditions and general ageing.

So I worked with over 100 health professionals and people with different health conditions to create a new way to make drinking substantially easier.

Finally, we made a breakthrough... that by making the handle of a cup rotatable with ball bearings, people with tremor can hold the cup steady and people with arthritis, pain, weakness and limited dexterity get more comfort and control.

How it works

handSteady looks like a 'normal' fine bone china cup but is lightweight and has a unique Rotatable Handle™ for up to four fingers and comes with a Hidden Lid™ with a drink and straw hole. It's dishasher and microwave safe.

Here’s how it works:

Stays upright

Stays upright

You can hold the Rotatable Handle™ at any comfortable angle, and gravity will keep the cup upright and steady.

This is helpful if you have limited dexterity or weakness in your wrist, as it enables you to avoid spills and drink without bending your wrist.

Tilts by pivoting

Tilts by pivoting

You can tilt handSteady by holding it by the handle close to your mouth, then pivoting it with your mouth, thumb, or other hand.

You get more control over the liquid flow because one hands takes the weight of the cup and drink through the handle whilst you control the tilt of the cup with your other hand, thumb or mouth controls the liquid flow.

Keeps drinks hot and in your cup

Keeps drinks hot and in your cup

handSteady cups with a Hidden Lid™ accessory. It is discrete (you can hardly see the lid), keeps drinks hotter for longer and reduces liquid flow and spills.

The lid is easy to insert and remove from the cup has a drink hole that you can also use with a straw to extend its use.

Increases your dexterity

Increases your dexterity

The Rotatable Handle™ removes the need to bend your wrist or raise your arm. Simply fix your wrist and the lift the cup by bending your elbow. Ideal if you have wrist pain or weakness.

You can also get more comfort for your fingers, wrists, arms and shoulders because the cup is lightweight (109g / 3.8oz) and the large sized handle spreads the weight across your whole hand.

Improves your stability

If you have tremor, the Rotatable Handle™ can be held at 90 degrees with your palm facing up or down. In this position your forearm can’t twist any further, so tremor can be less for many people.

The Rotatable Handle™ frees you to keep your elbows anchored into your side or on a surface throughout the drinking process for additional stability. .

Gravity can self-stabilise the cup if you align the Rotatable Handle™ with forearm tremor.

If you hold handSteady with two hands, the impact of tremor is reduced on the cup from the hand holding the Rotatable Handle™, which gives you more control over the cup.

Many people with reduced balance and tremor hold the Rotatable Handle™ upside down to lower the centre of gravity and increase stability.

If you do have reduced balance or dyskinesia, you can allow the cup to swing freely and let centrifugal force to you keep your drink in the cup.

Other ways you can use handSteady

  • Reach for it without twisting your body when the cup is on a side table by grasping the Rotatable Handle™ in a back handed position and returning your hand to an upright position as you bring the cup to your mouth.
  • Use in bed with or without a straw and without needing to sit up as far. This is because the Rotatable Handle enables you to bring the cup right to your mouth.
  • As a feeder cup. The carer holds the cup close to your mouth and you or they control the tilt and liquid flow with partial independence and more comfort.
  • Reduce the amount need to tilt head back to drink by pushing out your lips, and tilting by pivoting the cup; or, or by tilting the cup with the handle fixed at 45 degrees.
  • Hold the Rotatable Handle™ at 90 degrees whilst holding a walking aid, and gravity will keep the cup upright.
  • Use everywhere... in the living room, restaurant or cafe with friends and family... when on the move in a car, boat, plane or train to avoid spills... for taking pills and even as a milk jug.

Success stories

Here are some case studies from some people who are using the handSteady every day to make difficulty with the activity of drinking a thing of the past:

 

"handSteady has made a big change in my life"

I've had Essential Tremor for 39 years. Wtih a normal cup the handle is fixed and most of the liquid doesn't remain in the cup. But with handSteady, I can rotate the handle and keep the liquid in the mug despite my tremor. It looks similar to my ordinary cup, so going out, you just feel like everybody else with an ordinary mug.”

- Jackie Farell, Surrey, UK

 

"Makes me feel much more confident"

"I have got Multiple Sclerosis and the control of my hands in using a mug has got worse which makes me feel very self-concious about spilling. handSteady makes me feel much more confident that I can get the cup to my mouth and drink it without spilling.”

- Judi Brun, Croydon, UK

 

"Makes me feel like I'm not such a burden"

"I have had Parkinson's for over 25 years. The difference that handSteady has made to my life is that I'm not spilling drink all down the front of my jumper and on the floor. I can wobble the cup as much as I like and it doesn't spill.”

- Kate and Alan Wilcher, Ramsay, UK

 

"A lot easier to tilt"

"handSteady makes me feel quite secure when drinking because I have control of the cup, a bigger handle and the way it swings into your mouth. It's a lot easier to tilt into the mouth. The cup's handle is very easy to hold.””

- John Brown, London, UK

“He didn't think it would help him. But after a few days he's using it all the time now”

We bought the hand steady mug for my father-in-law who has early Parkinsons disease and other problems. We got him to persevere with the mug as initially he didn't think it would help him. But after a few days he's using it all the time now, and it's definitely helped him. We have recommended it to others who have the same symptoms and would recommend it to others.

- Brian and Valerie Donaldson

“Not getting the drinks to my mouth... all that is in the past”

“I have severe bilateral tremor in both hands. Making either hot or cold drinks has been an absolute nightmare for me, not only getting the drinks to my mouth but also from the kitchen to my living room. With the handsteady, all that is in the past, thank you so much.”

- Michael Logan

“It doesn't tire my arms out as much”

“handSteady is easy to use, but takes a few times to get used to. It’s very adaptable, so whatever part of my hands isn’t working today, there's some way I can lift the cup easily. My favourite is flipping the handle upside down and lifting from the top, which means I can keep my grip very level and reduce the strain on my wrist. It’s very lightweight compared to a solid china mug, so noticeably it doesn’t tire my arms out as much.”

- Elizabeth

“This mug has enabled me to go out and mix socially without the embarassment of spilling my drink everywhere.”

“I particularly like the discrete lid which means it looks like I am drinking from a mug with an unusual handle rather than a 'tommy tippy' mug which all my local disability shop had be able to offer me.”

- Marie Noon

“I feel like I have just won the lottery”

“I just had a hot cup of tea NOT in a travel mug for the first time in two years. I had not expected the pain reduction in the ability to drink without tilting my neck back. I lifted a full, glass of water off the counter with no top and no spilling. I feel like I just won the lottery. It's a life changer!”

- Anne Cammozzi, Nova Scotia, Canada

“I can now enjoy a full cup of tea”

"Before buying handSteady, by the time I got my cup to my table I only had half a cup left and had to wash the floor, table etc. I can now enjoy a full cup of tea. It is amazing and simple piece of equipment that has made a huge difference to my life."

John, Aberdeen

“Dad hasn’t spilled a drop of coffee since he’s had it”

“My father was getting embarrassed about always spilling his coffee when he went out. He had been talking about getting a toddlers drinking cup, but I didn't want that as it seems so degrading. So I was delighted when I went online and found these handSteady mugs. They are absolutely wonderful. We have now taken it to about five different cafes and everyone has been happy to give him his drink in it. It looks like a normal mug, but it does work and Dad hasn't spilled a drop of coffee since he's had it.”

- Jan Wright,Isle of White, UK

The ease of drinking this cup has provided him he loves it and is grateful there are no more spillages. So thank you.”

"handSteady was purchased for my grandfather who has a tremor in his hand which he is very conscious of and whilst he was not thrilled with the thought of using a different cup from every one else he is now thrilled with the ease of drinking this cup has provided him he loves it and is grateful there are no more spillages. So thank you.”

Louise kitchin, UK

“My wife has been extremely glad of her handSteady cup and takes it almost everywhere she goes.”

- Mark Harris
