A non-spill spoon has won its British creator and designer a £1,000 prize in a design competition to find innovative new products to help those with mental or physical disabilities.

The S’up Spoon, which has a deeper set bowl that partly extends into the handle, is designed for use by those whose hands are shaky and was conceived by computer science graduate Grant Douglas, who has had cerebral palsy since birth. It was designed by Mark Penver from 4c Design and the world-wide competition was sponsored by housing and care provider Blackwood, who will be backing the product with legal and marketing advice.
