Kinova is proud to be an authorized distributor of the OBI® Eating device, which allows users with upper-body impairments, as well as those who rely on a care provider, to control their food selection and pace of eating, thus creating an enjoyable and dignified dining experience. This eating device also enhances social interaction during meals, improves caregiver productivity, and helps to alleviate both time pressures and stress.
A first-of-its-kind dining experience
Put the ease and enjoyability back into every dining experience when you discover just how simple the OBI® Eating device is to use. Clocking in at around 7 lb, the device is both lightweight and portable, and comes equipped with a rechargeable battery, making it a realistic option for eating on the go. The eating device also has intuitive controls for caregivers, providing fast and easy adjustment of the spoon’s position, and is highly adaptable to many user interfaces, allowing operation with as little as one button.
This cutting-edge technology comes standard with four specialized bowls to assist with portion control, and its robotic arm allows you to personalize its movements and delivery positions in thousands of different ways, providing safe and optimal conditions for collecting and repositioning food, as well as minimizing spillage. When you’re finished, simply wipe down the base and arm with a disinfecting wipe or damp towel, and wash the spoon, plate and placemat either in your sink or dishwasher.
Personalize your device to suit your needs
Your device adapts to the way you eat. Each device provides users and care providers with intuitive controls to select food from among its four food bowls. Guide the hand to teach it new movements and new locations within seconds, and completely customize how you collect each tasty morsel. The graceful, life-like motion of this eating device is both quiet and inconspicuous, making it an unobtrusive guest at your table. And when you’re out and about, simply recharge the battery, pack it up and take it with you for a seamless dining experience anywhere.
