Hydration Helper Feeder Tip

Easily Customizable!

The feeding tip has been designed to make it easy to feed with different food/liquid thicknesses for pureed and liquidised foods and drinks. The tip has been designed to handle 3 of the main thickness types: Nectar ( very thin ), Honey, and Pudding ( very thick ).

Using a pair of scissors, cut in the middle of the desired thickness level on the tip. After cutting, make sure that there are no shap edges! The blue silicone cap will then fit over the top and help keep your thickened food/liquids from spilling.

Our Story

50 years ago my wife, Sue, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, devastating news to us as we were a young couple, and with me freshly out of the Navy we were without insurance and broke. We found an incredible Chiropractor, Dr. Terry Surtin, who was just out of medical school himself, who decided to take Sue on as a special case study to see if he could help us with Sue's care. The main thing he stressed for us then was proper nutrition and hydration, which is extremely important to us even to this day.

Since that early diagnosis we have trusted in those early words and done our best to keep Sue as hydrated as possible, but as her health has deteriorated over the years, the task has been a constant challenge for us. In addidion to her MS she has also developed issues like Diabetes, brain seizures, blood clots, bed sores, dimentia and frontal lobe syndrome. Any one of these would be challenging on its own, but we choose to fight!

In 2015 Sue was admitted to the hospital and was told that she had dysphagia and would require a feeding tube. Her condition at the time was deteriorating and we were told to prepare to begin Hospice. We agreed to the feeding tube, but knew that there had to be a better way to get needed fluids and nourishments in her. As she was now having issues with swallowing we had to thicken all of her foods and liquids which would cause challenges in trying to get enough into her to keep her alive!

We struggled with spoon feeding, but it was extremely messy and it didn't allow us to get the proper fluids and nutrition into her. We were always way short of the recommended 64oz of fluids that is requred each day doing this with a spoon ( 64 ounces is 384 teaspoons ). If there was a better way to feed her, and others lke her, I was going to find it.

The EZ Hydration Helper was born out of necessity. After numerous 3D prototypes and revisions the finished bottle was created with not only the patients needs in mind, but the care givers as well. The bottle is easy to fill and clean after use, and is made of a clear food grade plastics which show the remaining product in the bottle. The tip has been designed to allow for different food thicknesses: honey, nectar, and pudding, which are common thickend food consistancies that patients like Sue require for feedings. The neck of the bottle was designed to have a bend in it so those being fed do not need to tilt their heads up, minimizing choking hazards.

Sue has been in and out of hospitals and care facilities over the past few years, and when she is there we are always sure to bring our EZ Hydration Helpers with us to help us feed her. All of the Dr's, nurses and staff are always impressed with the ease of use and the amount of fluids and nutrition that we are able to deliver in such a short time to Sue. Their comments are always the same, this is a 'Game Changer'! Dr's keep telling us that this bottle has probably helped us keep her alive as other commonly used methods do not deliver the same benefits as our EZ Hydration Helper feeding system. This EZ Hydration Helper can be a great help to not only patients like my wife, but anyone that has eating or swallowing difficulties, including children!
