The Winsford Feeder is a height-adjustable powered feeder designed to enable individuals with quadriplegia or other upper extremity disabilities to independently feed themselves soup or any solid food that can be cut into small enough pieces . The height adjustment is accomplished using the large knob on the device. The unit includes a carrying case, a Corelle dinner-sized plate, a soup/cereal bowl, pusher, chin switch, glass holder, turntable, shelf, plug-in rocker switch, and drip pan. To eat from the dinner plate, the user pushes the switch to the left, food onto the spoon and brings the food up to the mouth. Repeating that process returns the spoon to the plate. Pushing the switch to the right roatates the plate to move food in front of the pusher to load the spoon. As the spoon descends, it swings down to a vertical position so the tip meets the plate near the rim. The tip of the spoon slides along the plate under the food and stops at an angle to the plate. When the switch is pressed to the left, the pusher loads more food on the spoon. The arm then continues downward until the spoon bowl is horizontal. The spoon is locked in that position to retain food during the upward motion. If the spoon is filled with too much food, the user may return it to the plate, empty it, and refill it. To use the bowl, the plate and the pusher are removed and the turntable, shelf, bowl, and drip pan are installed. The feeding process is then similar to that used with solid food. CONTROLS: The unit is controled using the chin switch or the plug-in rocker switch. POWER: 6-volt rechargeable battery (included). A battery charger is also included. DIMENSIONS (LxW): 18 x 12 inches. WEIGHT: 17 pounds. WARRANTY: The manufacturer will repair, free of charge, defects due to materials or workmanship occurring within one year of the date of purchase.
