Owner and designer Mark Moran created the Hydrant range having experienced the effects of dehydration both as a patient and an endurance runner.
A unique water bottle – solving the problem of reaching, lifting or holding drinks
Dehydration is the biggest single issue in healthcare, and one of the main causes is the lack of easy access to fluids for people with limited mobility. Those recovering or receiving care in hospital, a hospice or at home who are unable to reach, lift, or hold drinks without help are at risk of dehydration.
The Hydrant refillable water bottle solves the problem for healthcare staff, carers and patients, simply by closing the gap between the drinker and the drink. For patients, it delivers independence and dignity for those who would otherwise struggle to stay hydrated. It allows carers to accurately measure fluid intake and frees up more time for them to care for patients in other ways.
