Imagine a dining experience undaunted by limitations.

Meet Obi.

Obi is a first of its kind, revolutionary dining device for individuals who lack upper extremity function. Obi increases independence, social interaction, and effective food capture like never before.

With the momentary touch of a switch, Obi allows users to select between four compartments of food and command when the food is captured and delivered to the mouth.
