“9/10 Elderly patients arrive at hospital with problems caused by dehydration (BBC Points West)”

 

Lack of easy, independent access to fluids is a major cause of dehydration and its associated problems.

 

The Hydrant® is the solution.

 

The Hydrant® is for anyone who is unable to drink independently or pick up a glass or jug, usually because they are bed bound or have limited mobility, increasing the risk of dehydration.

  

The Hydrant® has an innovative and intelligent design to give those with limited mobility a way to increase independence, solving the problem of reaching, lifting or holding drinks and thus promotes self-sufficiency and facilitates hydration for these individuals across Aged Care, Hospitals, Home Care and Maternity.

 

Why is The Hydrant® unique?

 

• The flexi-grip handle attaches to almost anything, keeping your drink close by
