The Dysphagia Cup has been carefully designed, and is shaped to allow sufficient nose clearance – to empty contents without having to tilt the head back.

It has been designed to meet the needs of people who have difficulty in completing a successful swallow.

A successful swallow is one that has diverted food or liquid into the food tube (oesophagus) and not into the lungs.

Often a person who has had a stroke, head injury or neurological disability has difficulty performing a successful swallow. Safe swallowing may be accomplished by maintaining the chin in a tucked down position or by drinking thickened liquids or both.
