      When my Dad was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s, I started looking for devices that could help to mitigate symptoms. I’ve seen cups that are tip or spill-proof, spoons that help to manage tremors, and clothing that’s easier to put on and take off. Have you tried any Parkinsons-specific products? Has anything blown you away?

      So far, the best product I’ve used is Liftware Steady for eating. Heavy silverware doesn’t really do much, but Liftware has a gyroscope that essentially “cancels” the tremor when a person with PD or ET eats. It’s pricey, but if eating is a real challenge because of tremors, it’s money well spent. I haven’t tried other gadgets yet, but I’m going to OT tomorrow to explore what else is available, so I might end up with a few more gizmos. 🙂
