Title
(EN) Table attachment for the physically handicaped
Abstract
(EN)
This table attachment is designed to assist the physically handicapped by enabling them to cut portions of food, particularly meat, by themselves, without external assistance. The attachment comprises an internal power source (29) and a motor (2). The motor drives a circular cutting piece (1). The fork function is carried out by a fixed cylindrical crown (5) that pierces the food (8). In one embodiment, the table attachment can also serve as a fork.
