My prototype adapted weighted spoon I've made today.

I was getting so frustrated eating with my tremors, especially soup, so i made this weighted spoon today.. I got approx 30 one pence coins, taped them to the underneath of my spoon handle, covered them in polymer clay and baked the whole spoon in the oven for an hour for the clay to harden.

It works an absolute treat, it has reduced my tremor while eating by a good 70%.

    Thanx Chloe....I thought the idea could help others, even if they might not be aware of how to use polymer could just tape the coins to the handle for weight and leave the polymer clay off....I adapted the idea from a you tube video where a mother added coins for weight to her little daughters pencil so she could write.

    I hope it might help someone..and if anyone has any questions at all about it please do ask.
