This mug has enabled me to go out and mix socially without the embarrassment of spilling my drink everywhere.I particularly like the discrete lid which means it looks like I am drinking from a mug with an unusual handle rather than a 'tommy tippy' mug which all my local disability shop had to offer me.
About handSteady - No Spill Cup and Lid
Some cancer drugs can affect your nerves. The nerves most commonly affected are in your hands and feet. This can mean that you lose some of the feelings in your hands and feet so they may feel numb, painful and can easily lose grip.
handSteady looks like a 'normal' fine bone china cup but is lightweight and has a unique Rotatable Handle for up to four fingers and comes with a Hidden Lid with a drink and straw hole. You can hold the Rotatable Handle at any comfortable angle, and gravity will keep the cup upright and steady.
This is helpful if you have limited dexterity or weakness in your wrist, as it enables you to avoid spills and drink without bending your wrist. You can tilt handSteady by holding it by the handle close to your mouth, then pivoting it with your mouth, thumb, or other hand.
