handSteady - Ergonomic cup

About the solution

Chris Peacock, British inventor, created the handSteady, an ergonomic cup to help people with health conditions (such as tremor, joint pain and Parkinson’s disease) to have their drinks without undergoing a nerve-wracking, socially-awkward challenge.

Peacock had the idea for handSteady when a member of his family was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. At the time, he foresaw how drinking with a cup would one day become a burdensome task for his relative. As an inventor whose credentials include a stint at IBM, he realized he had the skills to create a solution.

The creation, which looks like a standard china cup, was designed to help those people with balance, tilt and motion when it comes to having a drink. The main component of the device is its rotatable handle, which makes it possible to keep the cup in an upright position until the user is ready to drink.

Peacock worked at IBM after gaining a First Class Physics Degree at Southampton University. A few years later, whilst completing a Masters in Industrial Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art he conceived the idea of handSteady.

The cup can hold 250 ml (8 oz) and the handle is large enough for four fingers. The power grip hold ensure firmness and the guard prevents the fingers from getting burned on the side of the cup.

handSteady is manufactured in West Sussex by a precision manufacturing company to ISO 9001 standards, and sold via the handSteady website for £39.99 (about US$64) The price includes accessories, free worldwide delivery and a 12-month warranty.
