The idea of Sloping Plate came from when I was working at a retirement home during the summer 2010 where I met an old woman with a paralysed arm. At the mealtimes she was struggling to pick up the food on the spoon with only one hand – since she was not able to tilt the plate.
It looks like an ordinary plate, however this plate has a sloping bottom, which makes it easier to pick up liquid food on the spoon, such as soups, porridge, purées and yogurt. A tactile mark indicates the deep side of the plate, so that blind people will also get the orientation of the plate. The colour of the plate provides good contrast to most kinds of food so that people with impaired vision easier can distinguish the food on the plate, e.g. white milk.
The plate is intended for everyone and gives a little extra attention to the disabled people.
