In accordance with these and other objects and advantages of the present drinking straws machine

In accordance with these and other objects and advantages of the present drinking straws machine, a liquid delivery device is provided in the form of a straw including a manually-actuated pump having a reservoir of a predetermined size, such that actuation of the pump controllably delivers a defined volume of liquid to the dysphagic or other user. The liquid delivery device, according to the drinking straw machine, includes a dip tube leading from the pump mechanism to a source of liquid to be consumed by the user.
In this manner, the pump mechanism thus controllably delivers a repeatable volume to the user. The pump delivers the liquid to the user in a slow manner, thus precluding potential premature spillage over the tongue into the pharynx. The dip tube of the device may be inserted into a graduated cylinder to provide added stability to determine the amount of liquid consumed, Various other inventive features of the drinking straw making machine will be apparent from the description of the drinking straws machine provided herein.
It is a further object of the drinking straw making machine to provide a liquid delivery device with a controlled rate of delivery.
It is a still further object to provide a liquid delivery device that requires minimal oral motor skill on the part of the user.
It is an even further object to provide a liquid delivery device that promotes a chin down drinking position.
It is an additional object to provide a liquid delivery device wherein the amount of liquid delivered to and consumed by the user may be determined.
It is also an object of the Flexible straw machine to provide a liquid delivery device that may allow for reduced use of medical personnel in administering thin liquids to the dysphagic user.
