Providing safe, controlled flow of fluids
The Drink-Rite System provides the safety and knowledge that users can start to take fluid carefully and without the risk of tilting the head.
This is important particularly after stroke and in the care of the elderly. Children with developmental issues will also benefit from the design features of Drink-Rite. Drink-Rite provides a controlled limited flow of fluid into the mouth with a choice of 5cc and 10cc every time you tilt the cup/beaker. Ideal for domestic as well as nursing home use. Available in cup and beaker options.
Why Drink-Rite is important
Drink-Rite provides a controlled flow of fluid into the mouth. This is important, as some users will not be able to drink and swallow safely if there is too much fluid delivered. This often occurs after stroke or other head and neck issues.
The epiglottis helps protect the airway whilst swallowing and it may not respond as quickly after a stroke. Too much fluid in the mouth in the early stages of stroke recovery could be a problem as fluid may enter the airway (lungs).
With small amounts of fluid being delivered every time the Drink-Rite cup/beaker is tilted, it allows the user to take fluid carefully, reducing the risks of coughing and choking, thereby relieving the stress and discomfort when drinking.
