Nutrition is essential. Not only to keep our body healthy, but also to enable us to grow and heal. There are various medical reasons, however, which can make ingesting food difficult. For this group of people, MediLime has developed new products.
MediLime focuses on innovating and improving enteral feeding systems, to make the life of patients more enjoyable. MediLime not only collaborates closely with specialists, such as doctors and nurses, but also with end users. This enables MediLime to continuously optimize and expand its range. MediLime’s ultimate goal is to provide the ideal product for everyone.
New in our product range:
The MediLime Tummy Button.
MediLime’s Tummy Button belongs to the new generation of feeding catheters. It was made in collaboration with nurses and on the basis of users’ questions. The high-quality feeding catheter meets all standards.
MediLime supplies all types of products for enteral feeding, such as nasogastric feeding tubes, Tummy Buttons, gastric feeding tubes and ENFit syringes. In addition, our range also has accessories such as caps, straws and connectors.
The MediLime Tummy Button and all associated accessories meet the new global standards for feeding catheters. These new products – in contrast to other products – contain only tissue-friendly materials and are free of plasticizers.
“I’m very enthusiastic!”
Heleen Voogt is a passionate nursing consultant at the Pediatric Stomach-Liver-Intestine Department at the Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam. Together with her colleague, she tested the new MediLime Tummy Button:
“In the period when the button was not freely available, parents would call me to ask for the ‘test button’. They had heard about it and had read positive reviews on web sites.”
In consultation with the parents of patients, we started working with the button. “They were very enthusiastic. The button offers a handy grip when, for example, connecting the extension tube or checking the balloon,” she explains. She continues: “There are fewer leaks, the button is easier and faster to insert and change, and I see a lot less irritation,” she says. “I’m very enthusiastic!”
“I am pleased that the button is now widely available, because it meets the requirements of parents and patients.”
