One Way Flextendable Drinking Straws

These long flexible drinking straws have one big advantage, the liquid stays in the straw when you stop sucking. There is a valve in the base which keeps the liquid in the straw between sips. This will significantly reduce air intake between sucks when drinking liquids if you’re using the Flextendable Drinking Straw.

Sucking and swallowing difficulties

What is the advantage?  They allow someone to take smaller sips which can be useful for people with dysphagia, known as difficulty with swallowing. This also makes them ideal for people who find it difficult to maintain suction on the straw.

Extendable straw

Flextendable Drinking Straws are soft tough silicone straws that are flexible along their entire length. There is a flexible bendy section which can extend the length of the straw from 28 cm (11 “) to 33 cm (13”).

Helps maintain liquid intake

Keeping up your liquid intake is very important. If your suck is not very strong then this is an excellent solution. One way straws can be used for fizzy drinks or liquid that is not too thick and gloopy.

These straws are reusable and come in a pack of 15 just wash them in warm soapy water. You can also trim the length using sharp scissors.

Customer comments

My 92 year old mother was finding it increasingly difficult to drink from a cup and didn’t have the strength to keep sucking liquid up through an ordinary straw…she is now drinking lots more

Word of warning – when you take the straw out of of a not-entirely drunk drink it will still be full of liquid so do it carefully & tip it upside down to empty it – preferably not on your trousers!

These are just right for people with swallowing issues.
