While DripDrop’s loyal users are widespread (from patients to elite athletes to soldiers and firefighters) many may not be so familiar with the lifesaving science DripDrop was built on: Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT). Credited to saving over 65 million babies and children with infectious diarrhea around the world, ORT is a life saving medical technology that has been around for more than three decades. The therapy, in which patient’s drink an oral rehydration solution (ORS), contains a precise, proven ratio of salts, sugars and other ingredients. To date, ORS has tasted poor (due to its high sodium). DripDrop is the world’s first great-tasting, medical grade ORS.
DripDrop was developed by Dr. Dolhun, a Mayo Clinic trained physician. While on a mission relief trip to Guatemala, he saw firsthand how effective Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS) were and realized their potential to combat dehydration on a massive scale. We’re excited to announce that Dr. Dolhun and a team of healthcare professionals representing Doctors Outreach Clinics have departed for Ecuador and will return on April 28th to assist in the relief efforts of last Saturday’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake.
Dr. Dolhun’s team will be working in Ecuador’s disaster zone (exact location undetermined), with a mission: to treat those infants, children and elderly whose health is at risk of dehydration by utilizing the lifesaving benefits and utility of DripDrop Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS).
“We at DripDrop are dedicated to advancing this simple and safe solution that empowers anyone to effectively treat most forms of dehydration-especially mothers”, says Dr. Dolhun.
