Universal Bottle Pourer

Description

Created in 72 hours as part of an epic team at Tikkun Olam Makers (TOM) 2017.  The universal bottle pourer was designed for Mandy, a quadruple amputee. Due to the rigid nature of her prosthetic hands, Mandy has difficulty gripping various shaped bottles and accurately pouring liquids.

 

By pressing a single button, the device is able to safely and efficiently pour a variety of beverages (milk, orange juice, wine) with a start/stop/reverse movement. The device is intended for universal use, and can be modified to suit individual needs, other users could include those with:

  • Muscle weakness

  • Rotation issues

  • Stroke

  • Motor neurone disease
