An Oley member’s search for an infusion-friendly backpack led her to the Speed Lite 20, manufactured by Deuter. She describes the benefits and her experience in her blog “Living with Gastroparesis” which offers advice and experience on gastroparesis and its corresponding treatments (feeding tubes, TPN, pacers, etc.,) from a patient’s perspective.
When we asked for permission to share this information with the Oley membership she enthusiastically mentioned that, “I love my backpack so much that I actually switched my 20-hour cycle to include mostly daytime hours, just so that I could wear it around.”
She also writes that, the backpack comes in smaller sizes, “but I have not personally been able to get my hands on them. I cannot certify whether or not they have all the features the biggest one has.”
