Our Adventure

We all have ideas in our daily cognitive brain processes that enable us to fabricate simple answers to questions we ask ourselves on the daily. Whether it be what would help me do this faster? What can I do to make it easier? What can I do to save time and energy?

Life is about making it as easy as we can, especially when in general we can say at times life isn’t easy.

Where it all began…

 
It was the summer of 2011 when the thought of the Drink E-Z cup sprouted. A conversation regarding a friends recent oral surgery is when the thought of doing a daily task became that much easier to those that have trouble doing it, Drinking. The thing is that friend’s mouth was wired shut for 3 weeks, and the only way they were able to intake liquids and feed themselves with dietary meal supplements or even water was through a massive syringe via the side of his mouth. This is when the idea of a automated powered drinking cup was born! It was a simple drawing board – pencil and paper.

 

Started from the bottom – literally

It’s interesting what you will try to piece together to rig up something that in your mind works so well. It was clear we needed to somehow get the water up through a straw with enough pressure to simulate the amount of liquid you would intake and digest – much easier said that done. We started by taking out that little pump from one of those battery-operated plastic squirt guns that go “pew-pew-pew”, realizing pretty much right away, there is no way that will work. However, anyone can find anything in the world these days with Google, and we found exactly what we were looking for; a high-efficient, food grade micro water pump – the heart of Drink E-Z. There was a lot of trial and error before we were able to see Drink E-Z in real life action. It was a memorable moment for our engineers and the rest of the team and we were ready to take on the world.

 

Dream to reality

We had partnered up with a responsible manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, China with a ISO 9001 certification. Rest assured, we use the high quality materials and processes in the development of Drink E-Z.

The road we go down all depends on the choices
we make, and more so the chances we take. It all starts with an idea, and if you believe in yourself and the idea enough, it soon unravels and becomes real. That is our story – and we started to see the reality
of Drink E-Z unfold when we started manufacturing what once was just a pencil drawn picture on a
piece of paper.
