As a speech pathologist, I found that specific design features of the RoseCup offered a comfortable and effective method of delivering controlled bolus volumes to selected patients post-surgery for oral cancer.
I typically struggle to find an acceptable, efficient and effective method of delivering a bolus to the posterior oral cavity. The soft attachment enabled independence in oral feeding, posterior delivery of a thickened liquid bolus and containment, eliminating the mess and frustration associated with bolus loss due to reduced control and compromised mouth closure.
Introduction of the Rose Cup made a huge difference by establishing a method of intake that was acceptable to my patient, lower in effort and supported an increase in intake which ultimately led to removal of her nasogastric tube. She is delighted and I couldn’t be more happy for her.
