Don't Spill a Drop (Spill/Leak Proof Cup for Teens & Adults)

One of the challenges that I find is that many individuals with disabilities that have fine motor skill challenges, cannot drink from a regular cup without spilling. Many of the adult travel mugs or water bottles either have buttons to press to release the liquid or they are not spill/leak proof. This idea was created for toddlers for that reason to assist them in drinking independently, so why not take that a step further and change the look and make them adult size, so that a teenagers and adults that requires this type of support can not look like they are having to drink from a baby/toddlers cup/bottle. This will assist with their self esteem and give them the dignity they deserve.

  1. Great idea! I suggest a handle on both sides, like the Uadapt.

      it would be good to have that option, but for individuals that do not require the handle it would be nice not to have it either.

  2. I have an insulated mug, but I can't prepare drinks myself due to my CP. Drinks are hot for an hour, but they leak a little and I've actually spilt the whole cup and have had to wait for my carer to clean it up
