DE&SI the first real ergonomic cup, also for the left-handed

06.09.2018 20:35:41 - In collaboration with bioengineers, doctors and physiotherapists, we went through a study of the arm, of the movements of the wrist and the hand and finally we created a new handle which is ergonomic and more suitable to the rotation of the hand.

( - Thanks to Kickstarter, , an extraordinary project of social usefulness is starting and it will revolutionize one of the most common daily gestures in the world.

Drinking coffee with a DE&SI cup is a unique experience as any interference that could reduce pleasure is removed.

The grip of its handle involves all fingers of the hand. The rotation


of the wrist, of the hand and upper limb have been studied to obtain the right movement.
Its correct use, with the right grip spreading out on a circumference causes no stress on the wrist nerves which are sensibly reduced.
The correct movements of the hand and wrist in the grip also help soothing pain on people suffering from syndromes like De Quervain, Carpal Tunnel, Rhizoartrosis.

So the only thing left is just to taste a good coffee, very relaxed ...

The DE&SI cup brings benefits to the person, to social inclusion, to equal opportunities, to the usability in the different phases of life, and to the autonomy of the person.
A captivating Italian design by Domenico Delfini in the cup and small cup version completes this revolutionary idea.
We think that everything aiming at improving the quality of our lives is of primary importance compared to the others; so if this cup has been designed for all of us
it must belong to our daily life, to our society and to our well-being.

So, let's support this ergonomic project together in kickstarter , and its daily correct way to grasp this cup designed for our well-being.

De Quervain syndrome is inflammation of two tendons that control movement of the thumb and their tendon sheath. This results in pain at the outside of the wrist. Pain is typically increased with gripping or rotating the wrist. The thumb may also be difficult to move smoothly. Pain is made worse by movement of the thumb and wrist, and may radiate to the thumb or the forearm. The main symptom is pain: patients feel it when they use their thumbs in extension or hold movements. Due to repetitive activities involving the flexion-extension movement of the thumb.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a medical condition due to compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist at the carpal tunnel. The main symptoms are pain, numbness, and tingling, in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring fingers. The syndrome is more frequently due to chronic inflammation of the tendon bag of the flexors (tenosynovitis), which compresses the median nerve.

Rhizarthrosis Trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis, also known as carpometacarpal osteoarthritis of the thumb or osteoarthritis at the base of the thumb, is a reparitive joint disease affecting the first carpometacarpal joint. This joint is formed by the trapezium bone of the wrist and the first metacarpal bone of the thumb. Because of its relative instability, this joint is a frequent site for osteoarthritis. Carpometacarpal osteoarthritis of the thumb occurs when the cushioning cartilage of the joint surfaces wears away, resulting in damage of the joint. The main complaint of patients is pain. Pain at the base of the thumb occurs when moving the thumb. Other symptoms include stiffness, swelling and loss of strength of the thumb.
