My dad lost his right thumb and middle finger in a table saw accident -- he struggles at meal time. Or, he did. He loves this fork so much that he bought several complete sets!
Easy to pick up

Bought for 94 yr old neighbor with arthritic fingers. He says it is good.

I bought these because my joints aren't the best and I love them. Very comfortable to grip and eat with
Didn’t work for us

I thought this beautiful utensil would be helpful for arthritic hands, but the handle and the times were too small for his large adult hands. For him, it was unwieldy to hold . Too bad!
Did not work for me

I have MS with no feeling in my hands and mild to severe tremors in my arms. I was excited to try the spoon because I thought it might be easier for me to hold onto. It was not. I found it very awkward and the weighted handle made it difficult to prop up in a bowl. It is well-made and sturdy however. Thank goodness I only bought one.

Integral Adaptive Utensil

A polished-looking adaptive utensil brings a sense of dignity to those with dexterity issues who need the extra help, but don’t want to stand out. The ergonomic design feels good in the hand and is easy to maneuver, and because it’s made with stainless steel, it looks more like typical cutlery. A rounded handle is easy to pick up and a flat bottom prevents the knife, fork, or spoon from rolling out of reach.


Amefa’s ergonomic adaptive utensils combine function and finish while adding polish to cutlery that’s typically clunky and industrial-feeling. The pieces are made with stainless steel to blend in better with other flatware on the table and to bring a sense of dignity to those who need the extra help, like folks with dexterity issues.

The utensils are weighted and shaped to feel good and fit perfectly in your hand and have a rounded handle that’s easy to pick up and maneuver. A flat bottom prevents them from rolling out of reach.

This feel-good, look-good approach comes from designer Isabel Heubl, who was inspired to create a better-looking, better-functioning spoon, fork, and knife when she was still in college. Amefa, a staple in the flatware industry since 1931, made her sophisticated designs a reality. more Their Story
