Woman invents cup to help her uncle who suffers from Parkinson’s disease

About the solution

The Nospill is a spill-proof cup to prevent people who have tremors from spilling their drinks. The invention is curved inward at the top to deflect the liquid back inside the cup in the event of a tremor. It also has a larger-than-normal handle.

“I made sure to make the cup something someone would actually want to use in public, rather than creating an antiseptic medical device that would make one feel more self-conscious. It looks like a cup that could be used by any clumsy person — and that makes it much more comforting for a person with Parkinson's to use”, Mileha explained.

The designer started working on her invention after she saw her uncle suffering from the shame of his condition. “He used to be the center of attention at all the family reunions, then he started to hide behind others. He hid from the pity he saw in people’s eyes”, she expressed.

After observing her uncle and interviewing him, in order to understand his limitations and needs, she designed the cup, which not only helps preventing the user from spilling drink, but it also helps them blend in socially.

“You have to imagine and create objects that meet the needs of people who are sick, who have disabilities”, Mileha observed.

The cup is easy to carry around, and can be bought online.

    我奶奶有帕金森氏病,75岁左右,7年前查出。现在,她的生活变得越来越困难,因为她的肌肉僵硬,甚至无法动弹。给予了左旋多巴和卡比多巴药物,但不会有太大的缓解作用。她不能进食,皮肤正在形成神经节损伤。我认为这可能是最后一个阶段,她服用的药物根本没有帮助,所以我开始对自然疗法进行大量研究,我被介绍给 Health Natural Center 和他们的帕金森氏草药方案。她从去年开始接受帕金森治疗,她的症状逐渐减轻,包括她的颤抖、身体无力和肌肉疼痛。在 healthnaturalcentre.org 上联系他们,自从开始这种治疗后,她又开始活跃了,她能够再次走路(在街上来回)她也恢复了锻炼以增强肌肉!!上帝保佑所有 PD 护理人员。保持坚强,在一天中花点时间感谢自己,爱自己,向你相信的任何信仰、明星、精神力量祈祷并祈求力量。我个人可以保证这些补救措施,但您可能需要决定什么最适合您。
