Drinking Straws Set of 5
Prevent waste... Use over and over!
What We Love About This Product
One-Way Drinking Straw Set
One-Way drinking straws are designed for seniors and those with dementia, Alzheimer's, Emphysema, COPD and those suffering from shortness of breath. Repeated sips and breaths can be used to drink... creating much less frustration, swallowed air and exerted energy while hydrating.
Each straw is made from a rigid plastic that can be curved to a shape by simply warming the straw under hot water and applying gentle pressure where the bend is desired. Great for those who can not sit up or bend over.
Special valve prevents liquid from flowing back down the straw
Ideal for people with a weak suck reflex
Made from rigid plastic
It is vital that people with dementia stay hydrated, especially if they struggle to remember to stop and take a drink throughout the day. If drinking has become strained, it may be easier to use One-Way straws.
Set of 5!
What We Love about One-Way Drinking Straws
One Direction drinking straws by
are a vital enhancement to any glass or mug for those with dementia or lack of breath.
The straw is rigid and features a One-Direction valve at the bottom of the straw. This means the valve is not visible when it is in use and also prevents it from being removed from the mug when used with a cap. The benefit of the One Direction valve is that once the fluid is at the top of the straw, it won’t flow back down. Multiple breaths can be taken between sips.
The straw and valve can be separated and cleaned for multiple use!
