Dysphagia Cups

Dysphagia is a medical term for the condition where a person faces difficulty while swallowing or drinking something. It is condition which is difficult to be detected by the patient themselves as it shows no major outer symptoms. But as it increases, it can lead to other severe conditions such as dehydration, malnutrition, and renal failure.

If there is a problem with the mouth or the throat, then exercises are advised to the patients. These exercises are combines with dietary plans and swallowing therapy. If the esophagus is the affected area, then medication or surgery is required.

For those with difficulty in drinking, Dysphagia cups come in handy. These cups are ergonomically designed to be spill proof. They position the liquid in the center of the mouth and direct it right down the throat. Vacuum cups are designed to create a vacuum in the mouth in which the liquid is directly pushed down the esophagus. Other types of Dysphagia cups include those with snorkels, with long spouts, and with feeding cups.
