WHAT IS NFANT® FEEDING SOLUTION?
nfant® Feeding Solution is a FDA cleared medical device that measures an infant’s tongue movement during nutritive and non-nutritive sucking using standard bottles, nipples, and pacifiers. The information collected is then streamed to the caregiver via the nfant® Mobile App. Data is stored in the cloud-based nfant® Patient Database which is HIPAA compliant.
HOW DOES NFANT® FEEDING SOLUTION CONTRIBUTE TO AN INFANT-DRIVEN APPROACH TO FEEDING?
nfant® Feeding Solution provides the “moment to moment” feedback necessary to be supportive on an infant’s skill development in transitioning from tube to oral feeding. The objective information collected should be used along with clinician expertise to provide evidenced based care.
WHICH INFANTS ARE APPROPRIATE FOR USE WITH NFANT® FEEDING SOLUTION?
nfant®Feeding Solution is designed to facilitate the transition from tube-feeding to oral feeding for preterm, sick full-term infants and healthy full-term infants who may be experiencing difficulty.
NFANT Labs is engaged in ongoing clinical trials on neonatal feeding. We also continue to conceptualize and develop other technological solutions for application to the complex needs of neonates. If you're interested in partnering with NFANT Labs, please contact us at and we will be happy to speak with you about your research goals and how we might assist.
WHAT KIND OF DATA DOES NFANT® FEEDING SOLUTION COLLECT?
nfant® Feeding Solution collects objective data on clinical metrics that include the impact of nipple type, position, and fluid characteristics on feeding performance. Factors critical to the progression of feeding for growth and nutrition are also documented including feeding readiness, safety of feeding, and volume consumed.
