The process of spreading his fingers can be uncomfortable because of how large the utensil is.

I bought a complete place setting for my 41 year old friend, who suffers from Lupus, diabetes and R.A. She has a difficult time gripping a standard metal fork. (She wouldn't even try using a spoon) When we would go out to eat, she wrapped paper napkins around the fork to keep it in her hand.

Let me tell you how this silverware has made a difference in how she enjoys a meal.

First, the weight of each piece is significant in that it has substance and presence when you hold it in your hand. (Her grip on it is as you would grip the handle of a motorcycle, she can't hold a fork like a pencil)

Second, no one is staring at her for the wad of rolled up napkins around her fork, which makes her feel a whole lot more comfortable.

Third, the grip is so soft and the rubber has "fins" if you will; meaning NO SLIP.

Fourth, she has amazing control now and even tackles food like soup; which she would not eat in public before the Good Grips silverware.

Fifth, the direction of the "head" on each piece can be altered to suit the individual.

She bought a small black zip-up pencil bag and carries this silverware in a her back-pack on the back of her wheel chair. She takes them EVERYWHERE. When I started my search in Amazon to find silverware for her, my mind's eye was thinking "something like a toddler uses, only bigger..." Then I found these. I know and trust the Good Grips name and have many cooking utensils right in my own kitchen made by Good Grips, so I thought.."Okay, lets give it a try". Let me tell you, my friend wouldn't take anything for this silverware. She loves them for the fit, comfort, control and the restoration of a slice of personal dignity and freedom.

The Weighted Utensils Set in theory sounds like a good idea in principle but may not work in practice. My bother has ALS and his hands are slowly becoming clawed. If you don't know what "clawed" refers to then the set may not be a problem. My brother can handle a normal spoon or fork, but has trouble with the amount the spoons bowl holds getting to his mouth. We thought these might be more comfortable, given the soft handle and the larger bowl. The problem, as with any wasting disease, is that as the patient get weaker, lifting heavy items becomes difficult. Allowing them the dignity of feeding themselves for as long as they can is the goal. This Utensil Set is making it harder. Although my bother has normal size hands for a man, the size of the grips are so large that they make it very hard for him to grip the handles. We have to help him spread his fingers to try and put his fingers around the rather large handle. The process of spreading his fingers can be uncomfortable because of how large the utensil is. So, think about how you would grip a large heavy hammer and I think you'll have a good idea if they are right for you. You should note that the return policy from The Wright Stuff, Inc. is, return unopened, you pay shipping, and a 20% restocking fee, which makes it not worth the money to return. You buy them you keep them.

I started off getting just the fork for my father in law who has Parkinson's. He tried it at dinner at our house and loved it. So we got him the whole set. He just loves it. He can see the black handles and feel the weight of the silverware, so he knows he has it in his hand. He can use the rocker knife to cut some of his own food instead of needing someone else to do it for him. I think that is his favorite for just that reason. I love that it gives him some autonomy back and that he feels good using them.

I purchased the set for a relative with Parkinson's. She says they are helpful for her. Buying the utensil set from this seller was a lot cheaper than buying individual utensils at a local medical supply store.

These are expensive, but they are really nice made. I bought them for a resident w/ MS and he is enjoying them. I would recommend these.

While it is helping my husband, the knife does not cut easily and he has trouble using it. Would look for a better set

I've had a tremor in my hands since I was about 10 years old, and it had gotten worse in recent years. With these utensils, I am able to hold my food steady even on my worst days. They are very comfortable to use. The knife proved to be better than I thought it would be--it isn't particularly sharp, yet it cut through today's pork chops like a great steak knife. I think it's a matter of the excellent grip and balance.
