Kapitex Dysphagia Cup

38.12 ex. VAT

New and improved design.

The Kapitex Dysphagia Cup is shaped to allow sufficient nose clearance to empty its contents, without having to tilt the head back.

The Dysphagia Cup 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.

  • Suitable for warm and cold liquids.
  • Bite-safe and shatterproof, with smooth moulded edges.
  • Wide handle allows extended palm, so gripping not required.

  • Shaped to direct flow of contents to the centre of the mouth.
  • Contoured for easier delivery of thickened liquid flow.
  • Suitable for warm and cold liquids.
