Makes drinking easier for beginners and/or individuals with oral motor difficulties.
How does it work?
The clip-Kup™ features a unique valve that controls the direction of fluid - liquid flows up into the straw but does not flow back down. Therefore, you squeeze the bottle until fluid reaches the top of the straw and release. Fluid will stay at the top of your straw thereby decreasing the effort required to drink. Plus, the use of a full straw will reduce the amount air inhaled resulting in less coughing and choking while drinking.
Who needs to use Cip-Kup™?
The cup is highly recommended for ANY individual who tend to aspirate or have difficulties generating and maintaining suction (a weak suck). This could be young children who need to develop this skill or perhaps elderly adults who are recovering from strokes or other physical difficulities.
The bottle and Cip-Kup is recommended for use with non carbonated drinks such as water, milk, juice (no pulp).
Your Cip-Kup™ Kit includes
- 1 flexible bottle with a twist-on cap,
- 10 standard drinking straws, 8 inches of polytubing (a reusable chewable, durable alternative to straws),
- 1 select-flow valve (can be trimmed to increase the flow and further decrease the effort required to drink), and
- 1 x ¾" yellow Lip Blok (discourages biting on the straw or inserting it too far into the mouth).
The bottle measures 2.5 " (6.35 cm) x 2.5" (6.35cm) x 5" (12.7cm) and holds 8 fluid ounces (236ml). It is compatible with most 0.25" straws. Dishwasher safe.
