Universal Bottle Pourer


Metro Makeathon




Mandy is a quadruple amputee with two prosthetic hands. Due to the rigid nature of her prosthetics, Mandy has difficulty gripping various shaped bottles and accurately pouring liquids. Mandy’s challenge is to create a universal and inclusive bottle pouring system.


The device uses tactile start, stop and reverse buttons to safely and efficiently lift and pour a variety of beverages (milk, orange juice, wine etc.). The device is intended for universal use and can be modified to suit individual needs.
