Freedom Dinnerware: A Guide for Patients and Caregivers

Freedom Dinnerware is designed both for children learning how to eat as well as folks suffering from degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Cerebral Palsy that make mealtimes difficult. Freedom has three important lines:

Because each Freedom product has a unique use, we want to help you understand each individual product and its application. An investment in a Freedom Dinnerware product is an investment in good health and independence for yourself or your patient.

Because most “non-slip” dinnerware is not truly non-slip, Freedom has dispensed with the traditional methods of inhibiting the movement of its plates and bowls. Freedom has a unique, detachable vacuum base. Screw the base onto the non-slip bowl or plate, and screw it off the same way. The base itself adheres to any smooth, clean surface in one motion–no complicated levers needed to produce suction.

The same clever base that makes Freedom’s bowls and plates “non-slip” ensure that they are also non-tip bowls and plates. Many manufacturers confuse the two functions. But consider this: a bowl or plate may be well-adhered to a surface–yet might still tip. Because of Freedom’s revolutionary extra-wide base, stability is achieved in its line of non tip plates and bowls that make sure the sandwich will stay on the plate and the soup in the bowl.

Not only that, but this “non-slip, non-tip” line of dinnerware is ergonomically designed for people who experience hand tremors or for kids learning to eat. Divider plates are available to keep food separated; scoop plates make it easy to get food onto the spoon or fork; and there is even a convenient snack bowl for those in-between mealtimes!

Freedom’s cupholder line boasts two sizes: a Standard size (6 to 16 ounces) and Large size (16 to 46 ounces). One thing that makes Freedom’s line unique is its capacity to fold flat to one-inch, for easy storage. Like the bowl and plate line, Freedom’s cupholders are both non-slip and non-tip.

The patented vacuum base system makes them non-slip cupholders, and the secure grabbing “arms” make them non-tipcup holders.

For wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, and rollators, it’s best to choose what we call our wheelchair cupholders, for the sake of simplicity. These, too, fold flat to one-inch to allow the wheelchair or other mobility device to pass through tight spaces. These cup holders clamp to wheelchairs with a locking device that allows the holder to go on and off with ease–without screwing into the frame.

So, forget about using sub-standard adaptive dinnerware and cupholders that break or don’t even work. Go with the leader: Freedom Dinnerware
