I foresee this branching out into the kink community rather soon.

Come to think of it, most medical devices usually do.

"Tongue Sucker" was my name all the way through high school. Then I matured, and got a similar, but less socially acceptable name.

Kudos to this design team, though. This will doubtless save many lives.

It sucks!

But in a good way

The clear chamber reveals whether the tongue is secured, and the brightly coloured bulb signals to arriving paramedics which casualties have been treated.

That is actually amazingly clever in the 'why didn't I think of that' kind of way. Award well deserved.

They say 250,000 Britons are rendered unconscious every year; surely more than that manage it on fally-over-water every Friday in the Bigg Market?
