It’s no secret that the Nation loves straws. Plastic, bendy, metal — we love our straws. However, those living with a wheelchair or battling an illness that can weaken the muscles need a little more help drinking. A straw is a great alternative for drinks, it can provide a solid solution for those in wheelchairs that don’t want to rely on someone handing them their drink. Sometimes, that straw is just a little too small, though..
The Extra Long Flexible Drinking Straw is a great place to start when trying to minimize bending and lifting when it comes to drinking. This product can be bought in a package of 10 or 20, all straws 28 inches in length and incredibly flexible to suit your needs.
