New movie: the eating assistive device improved Teddy’s life

In collaboration with the Swedish Agency for Participation and Teddy Nordgren, Camanio describes the value of innovative care technology in a unique and personal story. When his disease made it difficult for Teddy to use his arms and hands, many things in his life changed. Today, he can’t engage in his usual hobbies sports and carpentry, and he needs support in order to make his everyday life function. When he started to use Camanio’s eating assistive device Bestic®, an important part of Teddy’s life improved!

To be able to eat by yourself is a central part of an independent life. But not everyone has that opportunity, something that creates challenges in many people’s lives. Issues such as reduced appetite, chewing- and swallowing difficulties and being unable to use arms and hands, leads to reduced opportunities to eat independently.

“I miss it when I don’t have it with me”

When Teddy Nordgren could no longer use his arms and hands as usual due to his disease, his life took a new turn. In addition to not being able to pursue his interests in carpentry and sports, his mealtime situation changed. Instead of participating in conversations over dinner, he had to fucus on how to lift the food up to his mouth.

However, after Teddy started to use Bestic, an assistive eating device which is controlled by a button, his everyday life improved.

- Ever since I received this aid I have been using it as often as I can, and I miss it when I don’t have it with me. It’s wonderful to be able to relax and have a meal where I don’t have to think about how to get the spoon up to the mouth, säger Teddy.
