    Good afternoon all

    Forgive me butting in but the pictures I saw describing this all showed folk in wheelchairs.

    I assume it does not work if you are otherwise mobile, given the need for some sort of leverage?

    Hi Andy

    You can also attach arm supports to a table. They are known as mobile arm supports.

    Hi Andy, Rachel,

    For the Neater Eater, yes it can be attached to a table, but for the Neater Arm Assist, which is a fairly substantial piece of kit and requires a power source (usually wheelchair's batteries) I don't know how it would work in a standard table/desk and chair situation?? It certainly is not mobile.

    This video gives an idea of the mechanism:

    Hi Andy;

    There used to be some that, I think were wearable but I can't find them now. I guess they would put a bit of strain on the back.

    Love Terry
