There is a substantial increase in the number of people getting affected by Parkinson Disease at the current scenario. Hence there is a critical need of support to such patients, as engineers it is our duty to ensure their needs as fulfilled. This paper basically proposes few models and prototypes that would bring a ray of hope in the patient’s life. Here authors have proposed a supportive solution to this disorder. Basically our model uses a Nano board as the black box to which we provide the inputs and also we ensure the stabilizing in the form of tremor nullifying effect by using gyroscope, accelerometer and light weighted servo motors. In the present methodology self-stabilizing is done using servos using data provided to them by the gyro via a controller. Experimental analysis when carried out on different weight or object as an input on the spoon, designed model clearly depicts the decrease in the peak of tremor. The flexibility in the design basically refers to the all in one holder which is incorporated in the apex of the prototype, which aids the patient to not only use it is as a spoon, but also can be used to operate a key or any other objects by easily fitting it to the self-stabilizing device.
