A handle which helps folks with shaky hands to drink from a variety of cups

Similar projects worth following
Looking for collaborators!

During this semester of my Mechanical Engineering degree, I chose an elective course to create something innovative while following project management best practices.
In this project I want to design and produce a mechanically stabilized and dampened cup / cup handle to help people with involuntary tremors, i.e. Parkinson.
This device will be licenced under CERN-OHL-W, to ensure it reaches as many of those who would benefit form its use, as possible.

To boost chances of finishing the project before December, and to increase overall quality of the final product, I'm currently looking for collaborators.
Whether your area of interest is product design, mechanical engineering, project management, governance;
If you want to participate, don't hesitate to contact me.

If the device fulfills its intended function, I plan to produce and sell it in Norway, where I live. Collaborators are encouraged to produce and distribute it locally, as well.
