ARK's Cip-Kup Assembly - Makes Drinking Easier!

Price: $19.99

ARK's Cip-Kup™ allows individuals to learn or re-learn straw drinking with less effort. It also makes drinking easier for individuals with difficulties generating and maintaining suction - simply squeeze the liquid to the desired height and release. The valve will allow fluid to remain in the straw without flowing back into the cup, thereby reducing the air ingested and the effort required to drink (notice the juice staying at the top of the straw in one of the pictures above). The valve also slows the flow of fluid, which allows for more control over the quantity of fluid taken with each sip and helps to ensure that fluid is deposited in the front of the mouth. Users experience less coughing and choking while drinking with the Cip-Kup™ and tend to consume more fluid. It can also make the move from bottle-feeding to cup drinking an easier transition. When purchased, the valve opening is set for moderate restriction for users who tend to aspirate when taking too much fluid in one swallow. The valve can also be trimmed to increase the flow, further decreasing the effort required to drink. Use a Lip Blok® to discourage biting on the straw or inserting the straw too far into the mouth. It is not recommended that the Cip-Kup™ be used with carbonated beverages. ARK's Cip-Kup™ is made of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. All parts are dishwasher-safe and available separately.

ARK's Cip-Kup™ Assembly includes:
1 flexible Cip-Kup™ bottle, 1 *Lip Blok® (standard ¾" size), 8 inches of **special polytube, 1 ***select-flow valve, and 12 clear straws. Straw colors may vary.

*Lip Blok®:

ARK's Lip Blok® prevents individuals from biting the straw and/or inserting the straw too far into the mouth. Use these mouthpieces to discourage tongue-thrusting, to promote tongue retraction, and to correct overall tongue position. They can also be helpful with tensing for controlled lip and tongue movement. The Lip Blok® fits into any regular straw and comes in three different lengths - 1/4", 1/2", and the standard 3/4". Each Lip Blok® is constructed of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.

**Special Polytubing:

This special medical grade polytube is included in the Master Cip-Kup™ and in the Cip-Kup™ Assembly. Its large inner diameter allows for the use of both Lip Bloks™ and Select-Flow Valves. Trim it to your own custom length! Sold in lengths of three feet.

***Select Flow Valve:

Allows fluid to remain in the straw without flowing back into the cup, which is great for individuals who have difficulty generating and maintaining suction. By keeping fluid at the top of the straw, this valve can also make the move from bottle-feeding to cup drinking an easier transition. When purchased, the valve opening is set for moderate restriction for users who tend to aspirate when taking too much fluid in one swallow. The valve can be trimmed to increase the flow, thereby decreasing the effort required to drink. Adjust the flow you need by cutting back the tapered stem of the valve with scissors as shown. Each valve is made of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
