Ornamin cup and plate
Mobility supplier Fortuna Mobility has formed a UK partnership with Ornamin, a specialist in eating and drinking aids, who supply more than 2,000 care institutions around the world.

In collaboration with occupational therapists and nurses, Ornamin has developed a range of attractive and functional crockery for people with limited motor skills in their hands, necks or arms, or anyone needing care.

The range includes mugs with a cone-shaped interior design, which help anyone with limited neck and arm movement or who is bed bound to drink without assistance; plates and bowls that are non-slip with a sloped base, making it easier to trap the food (especially useful for those who have problems using their hands); and non-slip grip cutlery that provides a firm hold for a user with clammy, shaky or numb hands.

According to the supplier, the aim of the range is to remove the stigma of ‘special’ crockery while improving dignity and independence. The products, which retail from £4.99, are designed to be 100 per cent recyclable, durable, lightweight, quiet to use and break-resistant.

Elaine Ferguson, Mobility Services Manager of Fortuna Mobility, says, “We’re delighted to partner Ornamin and be able to offer this attractive, innovative range of tableware to both our customers and other retailers in the UK.

“The Ornamin mission, which is based on maintaining independence and improving care by providing invisible support through intelligent design, is one that Fortuna wholeheartedly endorses. We look forward to working with Ornamin, distributing their attractive and cost effective products, plus displaying them in our showroom.”
