FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. - Who invented the HandiCup?

A. - HandiCup is a small business that operates out of Toronto, Canada. It was invented from necessity by our founder, Chris, who has a C5 C6 spinal cord injury and uses a wheelchair. It lets people with full or limited hand function securely carry & access their drink - 100% of the time.


Q -  What’s the value difference of HandiCup from other wheelchair cupholders?
A - HandiCup is the only wheelchair cup holder to mounts on the interior perimeter of your chair. This feature means it never gets knocked off or breaks when going through a door, so when used correctly, you'll never have to buy a wheelchair cup holder again! HandiCup is proudly a Canadian small business. 


Q. - Why is it recommended to be mounted between your knees?
A - Anybody who uses a wheelchair knows that the most common place to keep “things” is in your lap - not the best idea when carrying a hot beverage and risk burning your skin. HandiCup solves that with its unique and most commonly accessed mounting location.


Q. - Is it only for wheelchairs?
A. - Absolutely not! It works great on a couch, work truck, your classic car, by the pool, even on a boat! Just check out our FB and IG posts! Or click here for some examples.
