Obi is a revolutionary, robotic feeding device that is simple to use

With just two buttons, an on/off button and one to save the feeding delivery position, it couldn’t be simpler. Just sit at the table and your carer using the feeding arm, shows Obi (just once), where you are in relation to the bowls and then presses the ‘save’ button.

That’s it! The food delivery location has been memorised.

Get back that sense of freedom and independence at mealtimes

Your feeding device is now programmed to select and deliver your chosen food, and you are now in control. It’s time to relax and enjoy the dining experience.
Obi takes the focus away from physically managing the feeding process and instead you can relax and interact with your friends and family at mealtimes, giving you that sense of freedom and independence.

Obi is portable, compact and discreet – perfect for dining out

Your new robotic feeding device is portable and compact, so use it away from the home without any issues. There are no wires, it just sits on the dining table and only uses the same amount of space any diner would use. It is quiet and discreet with a smooth, fluid motion that mirrors the natural arm movement of other diners.
