Enteral Nourishment adjustable disposer

Developed by: Instituto de Investigación Biomédica de Córdoba (IMIBIC).


A research group from the Andalusian Public Health System (SSPA) in Reina Sofía Hospital in Córdoba has devised a new device for adjustable dosing for enteral nutrition


Patients suffering from dysphagia require the use of enteral nutrition. Several devices are used to overcome this problem, allowing patient’s nourishment using different ways, including electronic control or needing electrical power for their proper performance.

By using this device the two basic parameters on enteral nutrition: the nourishment perfusion rate, and by controlling administering time, administered volume can be calculated. Moreover the adjustable dispenser offers the following advantages: - Mechanically operated. - Easy to operate. - It does not include electronics and does not need electrical power, making it different from the state-of-the art perfusion pumps.
