Abstract: Tremor is the most common movement condition, characterized as a rhythmic and involuntary movement of the any-body component. People or individuals who suffer from tremors need an assistive device for them to live a normal life. However, the individuals with tremors will not benefit from the normal spoon because it does not respond besides the existing assistive spoon device is too expensive and not affordable to be bought by the patient. To overcome this limitation, we proposed a new assistive spoon stabilizer that can be responding to be used by patients with hand tremors. The assistive spoon can contribute to the hand tremor society because by having this product, the patient who suffers from hand tremors can eat with a spoon without having difficulties. The project involves a processor of Arduino Nano as it combines with a gyro sensor to identify the angularity of the spoon. It also consists of two servo motors to stabilize the x-axis and y-axis angle of the spoon from the patient hand. Using the assistive spoon stabilizer device can help the community to be more independent because this product is affordable to be bought by the patients compared to the existing assistive spoon in the market which is expensive.
