Feeding Stand

A child with Epilepsy, Global Developmental Delay and Feeding problems is fed at night via PEG feed.

The feeding stand in her bedroom is currently balanced on her bed, and keeps falling over. This affects its function, and also disturbs the parents sleep/rest overnight. It needs to be positioned securely.

The solution

A stand for the PEG feed unit was made using 3/4″ Galvanised Steel Tube, and a hook, fixed to a wooden base using a steel wall plate.

The benefit

The stand holds the PEG feed unit securely, requiring no input overnight from the parents, thus ensuring safe, consistent delivery of nutrition to the client, and enabling better rest for the parents.
