PEG Feeding Stand
Share |

When my father got a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube, I designed this device so he could feed himself. This way, he is not dependent on his wife or other caregivers. The device is simple equipment from any chemistry class lab in the nation: a pole stand and two burette clamps. They can be purchased at Amazon.com (www.amazon.com/American-Educational-Stamped-Support-Resistant/dp/B00657N7TS and www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AWS3RGY).*

My father can use the stand with a long tube (as with an extension set), and without. When he uses it without, he turns the base of the stand, and lowers the clamps. When you do this, it is a good idea to add some weight to the base.

            I hope this helps inspire people.
