Mealtimes are the times when people are supposed to feel pleasure and happiness, but some people feel something opposite: pain and helplessness. These people, the disabled and elders, feel this way because they have a problem with using a spoon. Most of them get help from nurses, being very dependent on such helpers.
Stepoon was invented to help them become more independent. It keeps its spoon-head stable and level, by utilizing the motor controlled by a gyroscope. So people with disabilities can feed themselves.
Stepoon, as such, offers convenience to them and also gives chances for them to find pleasure in eating again.
