The Knife Fork Spoon (KFS)
The KFS is described as a multifunctional feeding utensil that may be used by individuals who have difficulties with independent feeding due to an inability to grasp and manouvre a standard set of utensils. KFS eliminates any need to coordinate seperate utensils, which allows a KFS to be used by one hand, this grapsing technique permits easy manouvering of the utensil, although some practice time is required. In general, using a multifunctional utensil may return a sense of freedom to an individual, return some dignity and permit greater social interaction during meal times.
The design of the KFS is clearly distinct from other multifunctional utensils in how it assists independent feeding.
