 5 Reasons to Buy a Dysphagia Cup

  1. Easier swallowing: the oval design shape helps control the flow of liquid reducing the risk of choking or aspiration.
  2. Increased independence:  it allows individuals with dysphagia to drink independently,  increasing their sense of independence and self-confidence.
  3. Reduced spills: the unique shape design directs the liquid to the centre of the mouth reducing the risk of spills and messes.
