Abstract

The nosey cup is limited in its effectiveness to prevent aspiration and rehabilitatedysphagia due to spillage and loss of contents. By developing a lid it will minimize spillage, maintain functionality, improve efficiency, and optimize effectivenessDue to the necessity of a lid for a nosey cup, several models will be constructed through engineering software and fabricated by means of a 3D printer. The designs will be tested and the most effective model will serve as the final product. After collecting the data and analyzing it, there will be modifications respectively. By developing a lid for a nosey cup, the quality of life for any individual that may benefit from the utilization of a nosey cup will be enhanced, dignity will be restored, and it willconsequently aid in the rehabilitation process.
