The Mighty Mug That Stands Strong

mugThere’s nothing worse than sitting in traffic when you’re late for work … until you spill hot coffee in your lap. But now there’s no reason to cry over spilled milk—or coffee. The Mighty Mug helps those struggling with hand tremor (or those who are just generally accident-prone) as the self-proclaimed “un-spillable” coffee cup.

The Mighty Mug is a travel or coffee cup that creates a powerful airlock when placed on a flat surface. A small amount of air is trapped beneath, creating a vacuum that locks the mug in place, preventing the possibility of accidental bumps and spills. When the mug is lifted, the pressure instantly stabilizes, allowing the airlock to release and lift easily. Perfect for those frustrated with shaky hand spills.

The Might Mug keeps your drink hot or cold, is dishwasher-safe, BPA-free and comes with a 100% guarantee policy. See how it works at TheMightyMug.com. Prices begin at $14.99 and are only available online or at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Let us know if the Mighty Mug helps with your ET.

 

 

A Growing Family of Attachments for Lift Labs

AttachmentsFamilyThe LiftWare stabilizer comes standard with a spoon attachment, but now can do more. Don’t let hand tremor get in the way of eating salads, pasta, and foods you commonly eat with a fork and avoid the hassle of spilling soup with two new attachments for the LiftWare device. The new fork attachment has a deep-scooped profile to hold more food, and the new soup spoon attachment has been designed specifically with a deeper bowl to hold 65% more liquid than the standard spoon attachment. The device and new attachments allow you to focus less on how you are eating and more on the people you’re eating with. The new attachments are compatible with the LiftWare stabilizer handle (sold separately for $295). Attachments available exclusively at LiftLabsDesign.com for $19.95.

If you are unable to afford a LiftWare device and have essential tremor, Lift Labs has a donation program available. If you would like to be considered to receive a donated LiftWare device, please review and complete an application. Please note that the IETF does not pay for devices nor does it solicit donations to pay for devices. We simply assist them in distributing devices that have been donated.
