Guest Blogger, Misti Staley from FreeArm Tube Feeding Assitant
The FreeArm lends a hand at the hospital, home and on-the-go. It provides more mobility with syringe feeding, pump feeding, and infusions.
The FreeArm clamps to surfaces such as tables, cribs, strollers, you name it. And works as a travel IV pole, easily bending up to fit in your bag.
It provides consistent feeds and infusions anywhere, anytime. With the FreeArm’s bendable arm, you can take the guesswork out of how high to hold the gravity syringe and keep lines free from kinks.
Inspiration behind FreeArm
Freeman Ellis Staley was born on April 25, 2015. He spent 3.5 months in the NICU at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. His parents, Will and Misti spent every day by his side cheering him on. Freeman was discharged with a g-tube, bolus gravity feeds during the day and pump feeds at night.
While home, Misti and Will were overwhelmed with tube feeding their son. They had medicines to add to his feeds, and multiple therapies to perform all while holding Freeman, and his bolus feeds. They needed a helping hand, so they created one…the FreeArm!
After 5 hard but wonderful weeks at home, Freeman’s breathing became labored and Will and Misti returned to the hospital with Freeman for a chest x-ray. Freeman and his family spent another long 5 months in the PICU before Freeman lost his battle with pulmonary hypertension at almost 10 months old, the day after Valentine’s Day 2016.
It has been 5 years since Will and Misti lost Freeman. They are happy to continue Freeman’s love through the FreeArm and FreeArm Muscle, making IV infusions, bolus, and pump feeding easier for families and hospital staff around the world.
