About this project

Drink E-Z reinvents something as simple as the cup and straw in a way to make the process easier for those who need help drinking or need to avoid creating suction in the mouth. The Drink E-Z Automatic Drinking Cup looks like your standard to-go cup aside from the tantalizing button at the double-walled stainless steel cup’s base. This button activates a food-grade micro pump that propels your drink up through the straw and brings it right to your lips. So in other words, it can be your new best friend.

Made up of four interlocking parts, a food-grade micro pump, a soft-touch button and operated by three AAA batteries, the Drink E-Z automatic drinking cup could possibly be the simplest product to use. Just press the button and let the cup do the rest. 

We have tested a variety of liquids, all kinds of viscosities, and have come up with a general list of DO's and DO NOT's. Here they are.  

For the most part, if you wanna try it out - go for it. We had tested over 100 types of drinks and it was the only way to find out what we could and could not use.

- Increased daily liquid intake easier w/out realizing (subconscious)
- Facilitates the intake of liquids at times when your body is weak
- Supports Seniors limited abilities to intake liquids
- Eases pain for those who experience troubles drinking
- Assists in post-aesthetic beauty lip + facial enhancements
- Perfect for those who suffer from MS, ALS + Spinal Cord Injuries
- Helps facilitate recovery process in post-operations (Root Canals, Jaw Surgery, Tooth Extractions)

Sometimes people need a little assistance while drinking. Whether you have limited abilities to consume liquids conventionally, you are heading into the dentist office or you just want to drink easier, the Drink E-Z Cup helps get that liquid into your body.     

Although our product was not designed as a medical device, we found that our product does satisfy the needs of medical and dental patients as well as the elderly.

Risks and challenges

Drink E-Z has been in the works for over 3 years now. Over this time we have experienced several challenges from materials, manufacturing process, developing proprietary technology, and design. One of our greatest challenges has been the selection process of our manufacturing facility. We strive to work with like minded suppliers and still continue to have and hold relationships prior to having initiated manufacturing. There has been a lot of work to get to this point - and even more to come - but when you have the passion behind you like we do, there aren't many obstacles that could stand in our way.

As for our risks, that is why we are here. The greatest risk at this moment is funding.
