Facilitates easy access to fluids from bed, wheelchair or armchair.
 
Product Description
The Hydrant is designed to give those with limited mobility a way to increase independence and reduce the chance of dehydration by being able to drink whenever they want to without assistance.
With a 900ml capacity and graduation lines to monitor fluid intake, the Hydrant Drinks System is a one litre bottle with integrated cap/handle/hanging bracket, a drinking tube with a bite valve and a small clip to attach the tube to clothing if required.
To use the bottle is hung from the bed, chair or wheelchair and the user simply takes hold of the tube, inserts the valve between their lips and gently sucks.
The bite valve opens under pressure and closes when released so there is no leakage.
It works best when hung slightly above head height, on a bed headboard or back of a day chair.
Once the tube is full of fluid the whole system becomes a siphon and no further sucking is needed simply apply pressure on the valve and the fluid flows gently out.
The bottle is suitable for water or other drinks such as cordial or fruit juice.
The package includes: drink container, tube and valve, and clothes clip.
All parts, excluding the tube and valve, are dishwasher safe.
30% of admissions to A&E from Care Homes are due to dehyration related issues.
The Hydrant and Hydrant Sports are ingeniously simple solutions to the potentially life threatening issue of dehydration:
Simply hook to a bed, wheelchair or chair and give users easy access to fluids so they can drink at anytime without assistance.
