Adaptive drinking cup makes drinking easier for all ages|||ARK's Sip-Tip® makes drinking easier for individuals with difficulties generating and maintaining suction. The set includes: 1 eight oz. tumbler, 1 spill-resistant lid, 10 One-Way Straws, and 1 *free* Lip Blok® (yellow, 3/4"). The One-Way Straws have a unique valve built into the bottom of the straw that controls the flow of liquid - fluid flows up into the straw, but does not empty back into the cup. Because fluid stays at the top of the straw, less air is ingested and less effort is required for each sip (notice the juice staying at the top of the straw in the picture). An individual can suck from the straw, or can be helped by "pumping" the fluid up the straw with the flexible lid. Simply cover the vent hole with your finger and press down several times until the liquid reaches the desired height. With the Sip-Tip, users tend to experience less coughing and choking while consuming more fluids.
The Sip-Tip® is similar to the Cip-Kup and Bear Bottle in function, but with a more professional and discrete design geared towards teenagers through geriatrics. The lid snaps on securely to minimize spillage, and the rigid, high-qualtiy tumbler has graduated marks on its side to monitor fluid intake. The Lip Blok® prevents individuals from biting on the straw or putting it too far into their mouths, and can also help decrease tongue protrusion and promote correct tongue and lip positioning.
Caution: Contains small parts. Must be supervised at all times.
I purchased this for my sister, and with this product she no longer coughs when she drinks! Melissa Downs
I am a caregiver for people who have ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). The pump lid and valve straws really do take a lot of the effort out of drinking, which is a blessing. Joy
Such a simple product, but so helpful. The straw ensures safe drinking of fluids for patients who might otherwise choke or cough when swallowing liquids. The cap is so snug and fit that if the glass rolls over, there is no spillage. A+ for this little wonder.
Cup and straws work great and just what we were looking for to help get fluids into our aging father. The straws made drinking so much easier and the spill proof cup prevented clean ups when the cup is knocked over. Highly recommend these products.
