Tetraplegic invents Portable bottle holder system

About the solution

Oliver must drink very often. But due to his condition, it was impossible for him to keep himself hydrated without risking tipping the bottle and without having to be dependent on someone.

The patient designed a portable bottle holder system which works by blocking the bottle using wooden supports fixed on a planchette, to pierce the stopper of the bottle and to insert a plastic tube that will act as straw. They fixed the anti-slip to the corners.
