Der Flexy®-Spoon

is revolutionary in feeding!

We all know that feeding can be very stressful. When the spoon is removed from the mouth without the help of the lips or tongue, the food will end up everywhere..

Reasons:

It is impossible to swallow with a hard spoon in your mouth. If you want to swallow you have to take the spoon out of your mouth.

This happens by sliding the food off the spoon with your lips and keeping the food in your mouth. In order to do so, exact control of the lip muscles is necessary. Babies, only used to sucking food during breast feeding or from a bottle, have to learn how to do this.

Geriatric patients or people who have been involved in accidents, illness, dysphagia or have problems controlling their lips can also benefit from this.

With our super soft Flexy ®-spoon it is going very easy!


Feeding with our Flexy®-Spoon is trouble-free!

FUNCTION Flexy®-Spoon:

When swallowing, the tongue presses the spoon against the palate. The concave spoon is turned up and changes form to fit the curvature of the palate, becoming convex. The food is pressed out of the sides and into the mouth. The tongue is so close to the palate that the swallowing reflex can be triggered.

ADVANTAGES Flexy®-Spoon:

Comfortable, time-saving feeding. Spillage is reduced considerably as well. There is no danger of oral injury by falling with spoon in mouth. The spoon simply will not break or splinter.

Es wird viel weniger verkleckert. Das Essen eingeben geht nicht nur schneller, es wird auch sicherer. Ein Brechen oder Aufsplittern des Löffels ist ausgeschlossen. Somit kann eine Verletzungsgefahr beim Sturz mit dem Löffel im Mund nahezu ausgeschlossen werden.

RECOMMENDATIONS Flexy®-Spoon:

The spoon is recommended by Prof. Dr. Castillo Morales a specialist in orofacial neurological problems. In addition speech therapists prefer to use our spoon in order to stimulate specific muscles in the mouths of their patients.
