Safesip is a reusable drinks cover made from food grade silicone. It works by stretching over the top of your desired glass, cup or drinks can, fitting a range of sizes from 6.5-8cm, and pushing a straw through the larger hole. Safesip helps to prevent spills, holds your straw in place and can even be used to drink in a reclined or laid back position. Safesip is dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe and currently comes in three colour options: red, blue and clear.

I’m particularly keen to use Safesip when sat at my laptop with a drink to hand. Due to MS, I can have poor dexterity and co-ordination which mean that I’m constantly in fear of spilling or knocking drinks over my keyboard especially, so this sounds perfect for me!

I first spotted Safesip at Naidex National earlier this year where they were showing their prototype, so it was great to see the finished product and be able to showcase it in this year’s Design Zone at the Mobility Roadshow.

We weren’t the only ones who liked Safesip, which went on to be awarded the accolade of ‘Coolest Product 2012′ voted for by Design Zone visitors. So congratulations Safesip and we look forward to hearing what the Enabled by Design community thinks too! : )
