Parkinson's Cup

Enabling Engineering

The Need

To reduce the risk of aspiration pneumonia when drinking for people with Parkinson's Disease and other neurological-muscular disorder. This project is meant to provide a safer and more cost-effective mode of drinking for a wide variety of individuals struggling with any condition or disorder which increases the risk of choking and/or aspiration pneumonia and as such has no distinct client. We will seek feedback from individuals who commonly face these difficulties to improve upon our design (such as the elderly and those with the above described conditions).

The Solution

By creating a design which modulates the amount of liquid at the top of the cup so that the person drinking does not have to tilt their head back will reduce the risk of choking and aspiration pneumonia. The handle, which is designed to be easy to grip and accommodate tremors, allows for the individual to drink without the assistance of a caretaker.
