Via Businesswire, a report on MDEA winner Zevex and their EnteraLite Infinity feeding pump:
Enteral feeding pumps are used by patients who cannot eat normally. A feeding tube is used to access their digestive tract, usually through the abdomen. A pump is used to deliver nutritional solution directly into the digestive tract through a disposable delivery set that is loaded into the pump and connected to the feeding tube.
The new EnteraLite Infinity pump is the smallest and lightest pump available today in the U.S. Unlike any other enteral feeding pump in the market today, ZEVEX’s pump can be washed under running water. Because the EnteraLite Infinity includes a 24-hour battery and weighs less than one pound, patients can be mobile and can feed at any place or time. ZEVEX’s new pump carry packs provide portability to users of any size, from infants to adults.
