Effective Feeding & Swallowing Solutions

Watching a loved one wither away from insufficient food and liquid intake or choke and cough when eating is traumatic.

At Lifemere we have taken a medical, nutritional and practical approach to providing you with products that offer solutions to make mealtimes more efficient, safe and enjoyable for those experiencing feeding and swallowing difficulties.

Restoring Dignity

A large emphasis on “restoring dignity”emerged in Aged Care and Palliative Care.

Our “smart design” concept emphasising appeal, independent feeding and limiting spill target this specific need.

RoseCup

The RoseCup is a unique drinking cup designed specifically to assist people who are experiencing eating difficulties or dysphagia symptoms. The RoseCup and specialised attachments assist in safer swallowing, hydration and nutrition. It is a Class 1 Medical Feeding Device, developed and manufactured in Australia and registered with the TGA.

Clinical Trials and Testimonies

"My client has PSP and a severe oropharyngeal dysphagia characterised by significantly delayed transit of a liquid bolus, compounded by poor head movement for oral intake.

The Rose Cup has increased her daily hydration intake, she’s drinking far more than she ever could before the Rose Cup. The Rose Cup is easy to use and hold, she can independently have a drink without spillages, she can access all the drink from the bottom of the cup with the straw and the volume of each bolus is controlled which has reduced coughing with inconsistent and unexpected bolus sizes.

It’s been a game changer and helped stabilise and halt her weight loss as she is drinking high protein and dietician certified nutritionally complete moderately thick drinks over the course of the day independently.

Her daughter has also enjoyed being able to take the Rose Cup on coffee and lunch outings and avoid messy spills and challenges with café cups/mugs when the last 1/4 of the drink would be left in the cup due to inability to move head to access the last of the beverage.

Most importantly it’s a safe way for her to drink and she enjoys drinking from the Rose Cup."
