Background & Development

Editing and transferring from old website. To be completed.


In the foreground, the very first drinking aid I made for my Grandmother in 1997 whilst she was in hospital, having broken both arms and lower jaw after tripping on a raised paving slab. This drinking bottle, with a hole drilled in the lid, a length of aquarium air pump tubing and a separate frame to hold everything place was the starting point for 'Drinkup'. In the background are various other prototypes, 'proof of concept' models and versions which were used for home trials, and offered to bomb blast victims of the Gulf war in 2003.
