Droplet® is the modular solution for hydration that encourages people to drink more. It has been developed to reduce people’s risk of dehydration especially in hospitals, care homes and at home.

The heart of the system is a highly sophisticated reminder base that can talk to the user if they are not drinking enough, and warns the carer if the user has not drunk for some time.
