Intelligent hydration aid which combats dehydration by monitoring the frequency of drinking and providing instant verbal and visual reminders

Droplet is a smart hydration reminder, designed to combat dehydration in community-based and acute environments. Droplet cups and tumblers have detachable electronic reminder bases. A series of spoken messages and flashing lights in the base remind the person to drink, and the timing of the reminders can be adjusted to suit the individual's needs.

Droplet has been developed in consultation with over 100 healthcare professionals and older people. Pilots in care homes and hospitals have shown Droplet increases fluid intakes by over 500ml per day.
