The elderly often encounter difficulties they didn’t have to face in their younger years, such as a greater tendency to accidentally break things. AnyPose has an irregular irregular pentagon shape, which can be stood vertically on one edge for draining on metal surfaces thanks to the embedding of magnets in each side. A dish rack is not required. This could also allow the dinnerware to be stood up for storage in a cupboard fitted with a metal plate.
The straight edges also allow the plates to be clustered more neatly and compactly on the table – a quality that is particularly relevant to Chinese meal customs. Easier gripping is another benefit of the thickened edges of AnyPose.
