The SpillNot is a small device that can help someone carry a mug or cup without spilling, even if they have balance challenges. The device is designed on physics principles and when carried by the finger loop, moves in a way that prevents the cup from spilling. Seems a bit like magic, but it gets rave reviews that are real! :)
Product recommend by Mike:
Best Device for Ataxia!!!
I WOULD GIVE IT 10 STARS IF I COULD!!! I first found this 5 years ago at the National Ataxia Foundation's annual conference. I have not spilled a drop of coffee since! It also works great for carrying a bowl of soup or cereal. I am a support group leader and now most of the members in our group have one also. They also make great gifts for anyone with Cerebellar Ataxia or other movement disorders.
I highly recommend with a two thumbs up!
Product Review by Hannah (meet Hannah, here)
I was introduced to this little device called "Spill Not" a few years ago, but I was skeptical as it was hard to imagine how it works. However, I had a mission every morning - chase my 5 year-old son to drink water. Because of my Ataxia issue and the problem with coordination... by the time I reached him, the water had already spilled, so it became mission impossible. I gave up.
When I got this little tool from Amazon (under $20), the first time I used it I was amazed how much it could help (see the video review). I don't know how it works scientifically, but it helps me from spilling the water, making a mess, and most important, I could bring my son water without worry.
I love the "Spill Not". It is my daily helper.
Might be particularly relevant for: decreased fine motor control, decreased coordination, decreased balance
