Abstract

People with hemiplegia, or motor weakness on one side of the body, often have difficulty cooking and using common kitchen appliances. The goal of this project is to build or modify kitchen aids that can be used with one hand. Six different devices were constructed to satisfy major areas of need for the client: adaptive handles, an adjustable platform for falling cans after automatic can opener usage, a jar opener, a modified cutting board, a pot stabilizer, and an adjustable electric cart. Using these devices, the client can independently prepare, cook, and serve a complete meal from start to finish.
