A Sippy Cup for Anyone with Sucking Challenges
ARK's Cip-Kup™ allows individuals to learn or re-learn how to drink from a straw while reducing choking hazards and making the entire experience easier for those with difficulty sucking. Simply squeeze the liquid to the desired height and release. The valve will allow fluid to remain in the straw without flowing back into the cup, thereby reducing the air ingested and the effort required to drink (notice the juice staying at the top of the straw in one of the pictures above). The valve also slows the flow of fluid which allows for more control over the quantity of fluid taken with each sip and helps to ensure that fluid is deposited in the front of the mouth. Easier sucking makes it easier to drink more fluid when using the Cip-Kup™.
- Great for easing the transition from bottle to cup
- For anyone with difficulty sucking or swallowing
- Age 10mos+
The cup comes with the valve opening set for moderate restriction for users who tend to aspirate when taking too much fluid in one swallow. The valve can also be trimmed to increase the flow, further decreasing the effort required to drink. Use the Lip Blok™ (see details tab) to discourage biting on the straw or inserting the straw too far into the mouth. The Cip-kup™ has graduation marks in both ml's and ounces that are easy to read. It is not recommended to use the Cip-Kup™ with carbonated beverages. ARK's Cip-Kup™ is made of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. All parts are dishwasher-safe. This item is not returnable.
