Manufacturer's product description

User Benefits

Enables the elderly, less able and injured to drink unassisted, without using their hands or arms.
Reduces dependence on carers and nursing staff.
Free standing and self-supporting on and flat surface (or can be secured/mounted using Mobilia equipment).
The bite valve allows the user to control fluid intake.
Can be used whilst lying or seated, from a bed or chair due to easy adjustment in reach, elevation and direction.
Does not drip or spill due to the CamelBak® anti-siphon/non return bite valve, which also reduces the suction effort required.
Affords easier hydration, so improves or sustains general health and well-being.
A wheelchair/powerchair/tubular bed frame version is also available (see the Drinkup Travel Lite).

Carer Benefits

Completely washable, with removable parts and mouthpieces. For economy, routine hygiene and use by others.
Accepts almost any drinks vessel, including the NHS type jug, allowing easier fluid intake monitoring.
Easy and quick to set up.
In all situations Drinkup reduces the time given to the basic task of keeping the dependent person or Service User well hydrated.
In a professional care situation financial savings may result from the dependent person or Service User being well hydrated and/or reallocation of staff time, thus Drinkup pays for itself within a short period of time.
No electricity or batteries required.
For use in hospitals, care/nursing homes and by individuals in their own homes.

How Drinkup Works

Very simply, once set-up and a drink is in place, the user bites gently onto the CamelBak® bite valve, makes a seal with their lips and sucks, as if using a straw. The drink will then rise and flow along the drinking tube. If the user needs to rest, they can relax without the drink returning to the vessel.

The 'Safe-Siphon' Mode

If the user has difficulty coordinating biting and sucking actions, has a weak 'suck ability' or is completely unable to suck, the Drinkup System may be used in the 'Safe-Siphon' mode, taking advantage of gravity. We can supply a special syringe and a bite valve adaptor for this purpose. Please contact our Appointed Stockists for further information on priming and using the Drinkup in the 'Safe-Siphon' mode.
