The challenge

Drinking Aid with water bottleThe client has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair. She wanted to be able to drink without assistance.

An adjustable rig was made to support a water bottle at an elevated position and supply water to a ‘bite valve’ by gravity feed. The valve is located adjacent to the client’s mouth.

The client now has an independent means of accessing liquids.
