Automated Drinking Cups

The 'Drink E-Z' Automatic Drinking Cup Helps the Elderly Consume Drinks

— December 21, 2015 — Life-Stages
The rise in elderly populations has created a need for products that are more attune to the ailments that senior citizens face everyday like the 'Drink E-Z' automatic drinking cup. While drinking through a straw is one of the easier ways for one to consume a beverage, it can sometimes be more difficult for those who have a physical ailment or who are unable to handle the suction.

The 'Drink E-Z' automatic drinking cup puts this to an end by allowing users to simply press a button on the side and allow the beverage to draw up the straw for them to enjoy. Although not suitable for thicker beverages like milkshakes, the 'Drink E-Z' automatic drinking cup is ideal for anything thin in consistency.
Trend Themes
1. Assistive Technology for Elderly - The rise in elderly population necessitates the development of more innovative and specialized products.
2. Automated Drinking Vessels - Devices that automate the drinking process are becoming more popular among consumers with disabilities.
3. Intuitive Beverage Containers - Containers that make it easier for people with physical disabilities to enjoy their beverages are a growing trend.
Industry Implications
1. Senior Care Industry - Companies that cater to elderly populations can benefit from the growing demand for innovative products like automated drinking cups.
2. Assistive Technology Industry - The assistive technology industry can capitalize on the trend of developing devices that are more accessible to people with disabilities.
3. Consumer Goods Industry - Enterprises that specialize in consumer goods can integrate assistive technology into their products to cater to a more inclusive audience.
