Thank you to all our valued Inglis Drink-Aide® customers!
In 1990, while working with Inglis residents, Occupational Therapist Linda Roseman Miron invented Drink-Aide using clear tubing, a water bottle, splinting material, velcro and, of course, duct tape! A simple U-bolt and some hardware attached the new-fangled contraption to the wheelchair and Drink-Aide® was born.
After nearly 30 years of producing Drink-Aide®, our hands-free water bottle, we have made the difficult decision to close and focus our energy on expanding our community services for individuals with disabilities.
We thank you all for being our customers and are proud of our product and the impact we have had within the disability community.

The Drink-Aide® Team
Designed by people with physical disabilities! If you use a wheelchair and have little or no upper body movement, Drink-Aide® will enable you to drink water independently!
- Independent water intake, which is essential to many normal body functions (e.g., good urine output and clarity, skin integrity)
- Decreased potential for urinary tract infection due to inadequate hydration
- Reduced potential costs of hospitalization due to inadequate hydration
- Improved quality of life for users
Drink-Aide® consists of a water bottle, a vibration-resistant, flexible drinking tube and a universal clamp which fastens the water bottle to a wheelchair, bed or any other convenient location. This hands-free innovation is a wellness product that allows a person with a disability to drink independently — in the middle of the night, outdoors or on the go.
