The Food and Drug Administration has granted marketing authorization to a device developed by a Philadelphia company to improve the administration of tube feeding.
Trovita Health Science's device, called Safe-T Feed, simplifies the tube-feeding process from more than 60 steps to just seven, and eliminates pouring nutritional formulas into an open syringe or gravity bag for feedings.
Will Brown, the company’s CEO, said Trovita’s delivery system features ready-to-feed pouch’s with a capless, “no spill” spout. Brown said a patent-pending, leak-proof connector allows Safe-T Feed to be disconnected from a tube in the midst of a feeding and stored for later use.
