Good hydration is vital for good health. 60% of the human body is made up of water and this water needs topping up through the day to replace the water we lose. Current recommendations are that we all drink 6-8 drinks per day and each drink should be approximately 8oz or 220ml. Water is best but drinking any non alcoholic fluid helps keep you hydrated, but try and avoid sugary fizzy drinks where possible.
Harfield have a range of products that can help you and your customers / patients / children to keep hydrated. We have a range of jugs and tumblers that are ideal for children. Available in a wide range of sizes and colours these will encourage them to drink more fluids.
For those people who need more assistance with drinking we have our two handled beaker. It is lightweight with wide handles that help everyone grip the beaker easily. Also the beaker is graduated so that you can see how much fluid has been consumed. We have jugs and tumblers with graduations too to help you monitor what each person has been drinking throughout the day. If hygiene is an issue, we have a range of antibacterial jugs and tumblers that can help reduce the risk of cross contamination.
For people needing fluids through the night when there is less supervision, we have our stylish locker set. Again light but very durable, these can help keep people hydrated through the night. By utilising some of the many colour options we have, a traffic light system can be used to show when the water or drink was last changed. For example one colour is used in the morning, one in the afternoon and another in the evening. This ensures that people have access to fresh water and therefore encourage people to drink more.
In summary, whatever the persons needs, we have a hydration solution for them. All our products are made from virtually unbreakable polycarbonate or copolyester. They are dishwasher safe and will not taint the water or drink, so you don’t get that plastic taste you can get with cheaper plastics.
