Feeding Tube Holder
Share |

               I recently received a Comfort Feed feeding tube holder by Oregon Medical Solutions to try out. I’ve had my feeding tube for three years. I prefer the “dangler” type [as compared to a low-profile “button” type of tube], but keeping it contained has always been an issue.

                   

The Comfort Feed holder comes with a belt, and a
strap that goes around your neck and fastens to

the belt.

You can unhook the neck strap from the belt and
use it to hold your shirt or blouse out of the

way as you feed.

              I’ve tucked it in the waistband of my pants, I’ve stuck it in a belt loop, and I’ve taped it to my stomach. None of these turned out to be good options, so when I was sent the Comfort Feed I was all in.

               After a couple of reviews of the instructions and a little trial and error, I figured out how to use it and it works very well.

               It is very adjustable and comfortable and will fit most people. The Velcro® closure that holds the tube in place works great. The Comfort Feed comes with a belt, and a removable strap that goes around your neck and fastens to the belt. This allows you to wear the belt loosely around your waist or chest if you desire, or you can simply unhook the neck strap from the belt and use it to hold your shirt/blouse out of the way.

               It’s a little awkward to use but nevertheless works very well. All in all, I believe Oregon Medical Solutions has provided a good product for people fed by tube.
