About This File

My wife occasionally has problems with her joints. When they hurt and are swollen, she can barely hold a fork or spoon in her hand.

There is "orthopedic" cuttlery with thicker handles that can be bought, but they're usually expensive and/or ugly. We wanted something that would benefit everyone by making a 3D-printable handle for widely used (and easily available) IKEA forks.

Goals:

  • modify / improve a fork so that it can be used by people with joint problems
  • it needs an "angled" surface, so that it's easier to grip
  • it should fit a regular IKEA Dragon fork and/or spoon
  • it should be removable, so that the forks can be washed in a regular dishwasher
  • it should be easy to print without support material

I designed the handle in OpenSCAD so that the parameters could be customized if someone wants a thicker handle or has a different fork. It fits both the fork and spoon in the IKEA Dragon cuttlery set. The source code can be found here, licensed as CC BY-SA so that others can profit too.
