Obi's functionality mimics a human arm during eating. This will allow users to eat independently.
The build in battery allows users to be location independent to eat. Obi accommodates a wide spectrum of people who have difficulty feeding themselves such as:
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Arthrogryposis Multiplex Conginetal (AMC)
Spinal Cord Injury
Other conditions impairing upper extremity motor control
Obi allows the user
To regain a feeling of confidence and independency
The option to choose the food the user really want to eat
The possibility to have contact with others when eating
The option to eat in own pace
Obi creates independency and costs savings
Obi leads to a bigger independency of the user. Therefore there is more time for attention and quality of life. Another important aspect of Obi is the hygiene of Obi. A number of essential parts such as the spoon, the plate and the placemat are dishwasher safe.
