Short Description

The SturdyBottle drinking aid is a personal hydrating system, allowing independent access to drinking without the direct need for assistance. The 750ml bottle comes with a 650mm straw, bendable support and an optional low effort non-return valve. The straw is adaptable and can be positioned to any angle. The bottle can be connected or placed on to a variety of objects/surfaces, such as wheelchair, bed cotside, laptray, bike, or table. The bottle also has a stand alone base with anti-slip underside that sticks without glue to smooth surfaces such as glass, plastic, or painted wood. This base allows the bottle to be freestanding, and can be removed and re-stuck.
