Bionix® SafeStraw allows healthcare providers to safely manage swallowed liquid volume and help reduce aspiration occurrence in patients with oral motor dysfunction.
Problem: Patients with oral motor dysfunction have difficulty controlling a liquid bolus and often swallow prematurely causing them to aspirate.
Solution: SafeStraw limits volume to approximately a teaspoon, or 6.2 ml’s, per sip helping to reduce the likelihood of aspiration by promoting a controllable liquid bolus.
Results: Limited bolus size helps reduce aspiration risks allowing patients to safely, discreetly, and independently drink from a variety of containers such as cups and bottles.
