Living Independently in the Kitchen

There are several aches and pains that we all suffer from, particularly as we get older. Perhaps our knees are a little rickety due to past injuries, or our work life has demanded substantial and continuous lifting or bending, or it could just be from plain old age! Maybe you tore a rotator cuff in your earlier years and arthritis has set in, making it difficult for you to lift your arms high enough to reach out of the way items in the kitchen cabinet.

Even if you are still comfortable enough to continue navigating your way around the kitchen, including cooking, chopping, prepping, opening jars, etc. there may be some arthritic changes or stiffness that may inhibit your ability to easily chop, cut, open, cook and prep—if so, it may be time to consider using certain products to equip your kitchen with apparatuses that can help you and/or your disabled loved ones. 

Ergonomically Friendly Kitchen Ware

Our products are specifically designed to help those who suffer from arthritis and other hand ailments. For example, our PETA Easi-Grip Bread Knife, Peta Easi-Grip Vegetable Knife and Peta Easi-Grip Carving Knife are ergonomically designed by setting the handles at a 90 degree angle to decrease the strain and pain on your wrist(s).  

We also understand that there are others who are more infirmed with their hands and are not able to actually dice and slice. Our PETA Multi-Function Food Preparation Board assists those with weak hand function, semi-loss of use of one hand, difficulty in peeling, slicing, grating and preparing food.

People who have Essential Tremors, a brain disorder that causes unintentional and uncontrollable shaking of the body, usually the hands and forearms and those who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease, will more than likely struggle with eating due to these uncontrollable shaking motions. Now there is a utensil that can help—the Gyenno Self Stabilizing Spoon V2 –an intelligent piece of tableware specifically designed to assist people who suffer from hand tremors. This self-stabilizing spoon helps to offset hand tremors of up to 85%. This, in effect, helps to provide a more stable and enjoyable dining experience. People with Essential Tremor or Parkinson’s disease will find they can worry less about spilling food and focus more on enjoying their meal.

Now that you or your loved one is better prepared to remain independent in the kitchen with our ergonomically friendly kitchenware, we know our PETA products are the perfect solution.
