Adapted cup

– an easy way for people who have no finger function to drink

The user holds the cup (the handle of the cup is hooked onto the screws of the universal strap)

User holds cup

The user lifts an adapted cup with a specially sewn strap with elastic pocket (universal strap) in order to drink. The pocket on the strap holds a bendable piece of metal with two screws, see photos below. The cup has a plastic handle which is fitted with two holes that are narrower upwards, see photos below. The holes and screws are the same distance. The user hooks the screws into the cup handle.
The user also uses a wrist stabilizing bandage.

Users comments
The user is very satisfied with the solution. It is easy to grasp the cup and put it down; no danger of being burned by hot drinks.
