Benefits of the handSteady Cup 2 - Sentient HealthcareFeature 1: The Rotatable Handle

Unlike other cups, the handle on handSteady can smoothly rotate 360 degrees which lets the cup self-level and self-stabilise. So, you can hold it in comfortable and stable positions and tilt it with more control by pivoting it with your mouth, hand or thumb. The handle also allows you to drink without bending your wrist, lifting your elbow or leaning your head back as far.

Feature 2: The Hidden Lid

The hidden lid sits on the rim of the handSteady cup and is discreet to preserve your dignity. It reduces spills, keeps drinks hotter for longer, reduces speed of liquid flow and has a straw and drink hole. It is easy to insert and remove.

Feature 3: Lightweight

Approximately 30% lighter than normal china cups (103g) so they're easier to lift if you have weakness and joint pain - saving you energy.

Feature 4: Microwave and Dishwasher Safe

handSteady is microwave safe, dishwasher safe and break proof. This makes it easy heat up drinks and keep the cup clean. It's also durable if dropped. It’s also sterlisable in autoclave machines.

Feature 5: Ergonomic Grip

The handle is large enough for up to 4 fingers.

Feature 6: Elegant Design

handSteady is made from plastic, but it's designed to look like a fine bone china coffee mug, making it suitable for many environments, such as restaurants and cafes. The inside of the cup is slightly inclined, which helps with not needing to lift your head back as far. Its thin, curved rim feels elegant when drinking and reduces the chances of ugly drip stains outside of the cup.

How It Works

  1. Place the Hidden Lid™ (with straw and drink hole) on the cup
  2. Hold handle at any angle, such as 90 degrees where tremor can be less
  3. Bring to your mouth (without needing twisting the wrist or raising the elbow) and tilt with 1 or 2 hands or mouth.

“... keep liquids in the mug despite my tremor” Jackie has had tremor for 39 years. In the past her cups would shake with her tremor, which resulted in spillages, especially when walking from the kitchen to the living room. Now, with handSteady, she holds the handle at an angle where her tremor is less and spills are a thing of the past. “... it’s a lot easier to tilt into the mouth” John has muscle weakness due to Multiple Sclerosis. In the past John would need to put a lot of effort into holding his cups upright and manipulating with both hands as he brings it to his mouth. Now, with handSteady, John can drink more easily without and more easily control the liquid flow when drinking. “... keep liquids in the mug despite my tremor” Kate has dyskinesia due to Parkinson’s. In the past Kate would have frequent spillages resulting in time being spent cleaning. handSteady cups enabled Kate to drink without spilling, as she allowed the cup to move with the swinging motion of dyskinesia and centrifugal force kept the drink in the cup.
