Gold Winner 2020


Product: sippa home

Company: iuvas medical GmbH

With sippa we stand by people who find everyday habits such as drinking a major challenge. sippa fits into your everyday life like a normal drinking vessel and helps where it is needed. Inconspicuous. Functional. Easy.


When emptying a drinking vessel completely, the head must normally be stretched backwards. On the one hand, this is no longer possible for many people due to restricted movement, on the other hand, stretching opens the airways increases the risk of aspiration. If swallowing occurs during the drinking process, the patients are at increased risk of pneumonia.

sippa promotes an optimal head position for carefree drinking, the so-called chin-down or chin-tuck maneuver, especially for people with difficulty swallowing. The usual wetting of the lips and normal swallowing boluses enable a natural swallowing mechanism.
