The TUG-A-MEAL is a small, portable dolly that holds a medical device, such as a feeding pump. It attaches to the patient’s leg, and the dolly, with the attached device, can move with the patient.
The feeding pump (or another medical device) is securely strapped to the dolly, which attaches to the user’s leg, using a harness system. This increases mobility and the user can continue treatment without having to be stationary.

The TUG-A-MEAL is a medical device that will allow children and adults with feeding tubes to be mobile. The dolly system attaches to a user’s leg with a harness, so the function of the infusion pump is not interrupted during activity.
The dolly rolls easily on wheels, holds the pump or infusion device securely, and allows the user to move around freely while receiving a treatment or feeding. Hook-and-loop straps secure the medical device to the dolly while the patient is moving, so normal activity is not interrupted.
