Helping stroke patients eat with dignity-INFT1

The Independent Feeding Tray(IFT) is a unique Adaptive Innovation Technology invented and designed by Ilana Herman MA, CCC/SLP licensed Speech Pathologist.

Ilana is a licensed Speech Pathologist for the past 38 years. She is currently the Senior Speech Pathologist providing speech therapy to patients on a daily basis at one of the leading Rehab/Nursing Home facilities in NY. The main goal of Ilana’s unique invention of the Independent Feeding Tray is to provide patients who  have suffered a Stroke or other Neurological Disease to regain their Independence and Dignity at meal time. In addition, Ilana has designed the Independent Feeding Tray for “children with special needs” at school and at home. The unique adaptive innovation technology will assist with teaching children how to feed themselves independently now and in the future. Ilana is pleased to hear from other professional SLP’s , OT’s , PT’s and family members who have friends , family or patients who are either in short term/long term facilities or home bound. IFT patent pending tray is innovative in its design and recently received the NSF International Mark.  

The funds raised from this campaign will go towards the mold for IFT. With this mold we can begin our process in helping patients regain their dignity at meal time.
