Enjoy your meal at your own pace and on your own terms - Bestic is an assistive eating device created by and for people who have impaired function, or lack function in arms and/or hands. Being able to control your meal yourself can contribute to increased quality of life and increased well-being. Bestic is very easy to use and allows the user to decide the pace of their meal.

For an independent mealtime

Bestic is neat and compact with a unique design to fit into the table setting. When in use, Bestic has soft movements and is fairly silent.

Bestic has an adjustable arm with a spoon on the end. The movements of the arm are controlled by the user through a button that can be pressed by for instance your hand, knee, foot, chin or shoulder. With different control methods there are possibilities to change how the user steers the spoon on the plate. The height and distance of the spoon to the mouth can be set and adjusted in the menu. For safety reasons, the spoon cannot enter the mouth, instead the user needs to be able to move enough to eat off the spoon.

Said about Bestic

"For the past twenty-six years I have never eaten a meal on my own. I was always fed every single thing that went into my mouth. Bestic has changed my life. For the first time I can eat on my own. Not only that, I can eat at the pace I want and can eat at times that I couldn't before. But I realized its real power when I sat down to eat with my family and could relax and talk to them during dinner, it was the first time I felt like a real person eating at the table with everyone else. I ate when I wanted and talked when I wanted and after a while no one really notices the machine. It has given me more independence and that is a big deal. I would recommend Bestic to anyone who can hit a switch."
