 Stand Frees Hands

 

When John Pappas realized he’d have to rely on enteral nutrition (EN) long-term, he developed a tube-feeding stand to help him be more independent. The stand is for gravity (as opposed to pump) feeding. The homeEN consumer places formula in a cylinder attached to the stand, which is attached to tubing and the consumer’s G- or J-tube. The stand is designed to free up the homeEN consumer’s hands. One homeEN consumer, who has developed a stand similar to this one, explains that a stand has saved her hands from stress damage and, she adds, when using a stand she can “talk and eat at the same time!”

 

Find details about the Self Tube Feeder at www.selftubefeeder.com. The stand, made of plastic tubing and molded fittings, costs $45 plus shipping and handling.
