Fidmi Medical’s FDA-cleared, low-profile, enteral feeding device, with its unique design, eliminates the drawbacks plaguing existing devices and offers a secure, reliable, and discreet enteral feeding solution.
Secure: Semi-rigid internal bumper stays in place, preventing device dislodgment (easily dismantles for trauma-free removal) for reduced ER visits and tube replacements and improved patient care.
Reliable: Unique, disposable feeding tube insert maintains tube cleanliness, eliminating clogging for improved nutrition delivery.
Discreet: Low-profile for enhanced patient satisfaction.
Fidmi’s enteral feeding device is inserted (during initial placement) similarly to other percutaneous endoscopic gastronomy (PEG) tubes for physician ease. The Fidmi device provides a long-term solution for placement and removal of gastronomy tubes. The product’s innovative design —
Many adults and children suffering from cancer, stroke, and neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s, experience difficulty eating or swallowing — to the point where they cannot take food orally — and require a long-term solution to receive adequate nutrition. Enteral feeding (endoscopic insertion of a tube directly into the abdomen) presents a key nutrition solution for these people.
In some cultures, where social and family events revolve around food, people who require enteral feeding struggle with significant quality of life issues. Unfortunately, too, they face numerous physical challenges. Over time, 45% of tubes clog and up to 14% of tubes dislodge, resulting in inadequate nutrition and medication delivery, numerous tube replacements, hospitalizations, and a substantial financial burden on patients and the health care system.
