Utilising the RoseCup system to take thickened liquids in reclined or dorsal positions (laying on the back) might appear to be a natural solution in some clinical scenarios i.e. post-operative recovery, spinal injuries, multiple injuries or neurological conditions. Especially using the soft spouts might resemble the safe drinking of a baby taking a bottle while lying on his back.
While a method of swallowing initiated by tongue-suck action might well activate effective and safe intrinsic reflex cascades, Lifemere has NOT conducted any research studies to validate such an assumption. Using the system for feeding in reclined and dorsal positions is entirely up to the discretion and responsibility of the clinician and end user.
