This nosey cup (flexi cup) is an excellent tool for feeding progression and feeding therapy. The Green Flexi Cut Cup is a bit larger and sturdier than the other cups and is designed for initiation of self feeding or improving a client’s independence with eating. The lightweight and flexible plastic allows the caregiver or client to squeeze and change the shape of the Flexi Cut Cup to perfectly fit the mouth. The cut out design is useful for those with limited neck extension, decreased upper extremity range of motion, and people with poor lip closure. For a child learning to drink, try purees or thickened liquids as these move slower and allow the child extra time to react. The Flexi Cut Cup can be tilted close to the client’s face so that the feeder can see the client’s lip and tongue movement and provide further support as needed. These are also useful for controlled eating or when relearning is necessary such as after a neurological insult (stroke, TBI, AVM, brain tumor resection, etc) or when working with those with developmental delays. An Occupational Therapist or a Speech Language Pathologist can help you decide if this Flexi Cut Cup can help your loved one with safe feeding progression.
Each cup is lightly colored, but sheer enough to see the liquid inside for an easy gauge on the flow of fluids. They are dishwasher safe; although top rack is recommended and heated drying should be avoided. Flexi Cut Cups are made of FDA approved Polyethylene and are latex free. No lead, BPA, or phthalates are used in the making of these cups. Flexi Cut Nosey Cups are made in the USA!
