Liquid feed bag openerThe client, who has motor neurone disease, is fed through a tube with liquid food supplied in litre packs. It took the client about one hour to break the foil seal of the pack due to his condition.

A device was designed and made which holds the feed pack and a lever mechanism pierces the foil seal. The foil seal is actually pierced by the feed tube, which is attached to the pack.

The client is able to continue living at home, and can open the feed packs in a matter of minutes.
