Tube Feeding Tips: Versatile Tube Protector
Share |

There has been a lot of discussion about G-tube protectors. The company Benik was making them for a hospital in Virginia, and the mom of one of their patients posted something about them online. Now, because of the influx of calls from other parents, Benik will be distributing them more widely.

Editor’s note: The tube protectors are available in a range of colors and sizes (pediatric and adult) and Benik says they can be used with G-, J-, GJ- and PEG tubes. Made of neoprene, they go around your waist and have an access hole that you’d position over your low-profile access device (“button”). A neoprene flap covers the hole when you want to protect your access device and can be removed entirely when you want to access your tube.

 

Learn more at www.benik.com/peds/wrap/g-tube or by calling Benik at (800) 442-8910.
