The Hydrant bottle is a simple solution to the risk of dehydration.
The Hydrant has a generous 1 litre capacity and a flexi grip handle that will attach to almost any thing so there is always a drink close by. The non spill tube makes it easy to drink from unassisted making fluids available around the clock.
The Hydrant can be used by anyone who is at risk of dehydration due to limited access to fluids because of poor mobility. It will increase your independence as the 1 litre capacity means you are able to drink when you want without relying on others. The Hydrants versatility means it can be used in hospitals, care homes and at home.
The bottle is graduated to enable accurate measurement of liquid intake.
By using the Hydrant in hospitals, care homes and as part of at-home care programmes users can drink unassisted, decreasing their risk of dehydration, be increasingly independent, living a more dignified life. The risk of serious illness and infection relating to dehydration is reduced.
There are professional care savings and efficiencies to be made too as The Hydrant helps prevent dehydration-related hospital admissions, saves valuable staff resource, releasing more time for healthcare professionals and contributes towards a speedier recovery, freeing up beds more quickly.
How to use The Hydrant.
Step one: Fill the bottle with water or the drink of your choice and hang it from the bed, day chair, wheelchair or any other convenient spot.
Step two: Take hold of the tube and put the bite valve between your teeth. Then bite down to open the valve and suck to drink. The bite valve opens under pressure and closes when released, so there is no leakage.
