Who can use it?
This unique and innovative drinking aid has been designed for people with tremor due to Parkinson’s disease or essential tremor. It helps them to reduce their tremor effects while drinking so that they can have their tea, coffee or water without spilling. The cup can also benefit those suffering from muscle weakness, limited dexterity, or those who drink on the go in the car or train.
How does it work?
The cup does a great job when it comes to drinking. It has a large, easy-grip handle that is rotatable (rotate 360 degrees). The rotatable feature allows the cup to be at self-level whilst in use, no matter what angle the cup is held at. The handle helps avoid drinking efforts that the user usually faces while drinking with a normal cup, like twisting the wrist, raising the elbow, or leaning the head back a spar.
The cup comes with a slip lid, which prevents the liquid from spilling and keeps drinks hotter for a longer time. Not only that, it has a drinking hole that controls the flow of liquid to the user.
The lid can easily be inserted by simply pushing onto the cup in the desired position and can be removed by pushing up.
