Eating assistants

The elderly’s wrist joints can’t move to the suitable position to send food to the month on account of the degeneration of the wrist joints and Orbicular Muscle of Mouth;besides,it is not easy to open the mouth wide,so it is quite difficult to eat alone.It takes someone to feed them over a long period of time, which makes them lose their face.
Therefore,we hope to design a kind of intelligent assistants to help the elderly be able to eat alone;thus,it was born.
