"The FDA submission of the SAFE-T FEED system is a significant milestone toward improving quality of care for people who require tube feeding," noted William Brown, Trovita's CEO. "Our mission at Trovita is to address important patient care needs related to receiving both proper and better quality nutrition. As many as one-third of patients on feeding tubes are malnourished as a direct result of not being able to complete daily feedings due to the limitations of the current bolus feeding approach. By offering a system that can allow patients to easily receive their full nutritional requirement, Trovita can make a positive impact on the lives of patients and their families, and potentially reduce downstream healthcare consumption resulting from malnutrition or tube feeding complications."
