Diner & Caregiver Benefits

For diners Obi allows the option to choose the food they wish to eat, freedom to eat at their own pace, the ability to interact with others while dining, and a new-found sense of confidence, dignity, and independence. This feeder is designed to provide caregivers with a peace of mind that their patient or loved one is gaining independence, time back to their day to care for other patients or family members, and reduces stress caused by time pressure.

Obi is easy to control after initial training. This feeder aid is controlled by switches and can be operated by any part of the body that is able to activate the switch. This feature allows the feeder to become an extension of the diner, and makes eating more independent for the user.
