2 Degree Dining Table / Inclined tabletop

2 Degree Dining Table
2 Degree Dining Table

Both Parkinson’s patients and pre-school children are usually unable to hold dining utensils steadily because of their powerless muscle. During meal times, they may knock over a bowl or a cup and make the water be poured over the dining table. Also, it is hard to avoid liquid spraying on the floor or their clothes. Thus, we design Two Degree Dining Table. Four sides of tabletop incline at 2 degree inwardly. It makes the poured liquid stream toward the center of table in order to prevent the liquid from spraying on the floor or clothes. Two Degree Dining Table improves Parkinson’s patient and children’s problem during their meal times.
