Moog Medical Devices Group Increases Manufacturing Capacity as a Result of Abbott Nutrition's Exit From the Enteral Feeding Market
SALT LAKE CITY, UT, Jan 08, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Moog Medical Devices Group (Moog) announced today that customers and
users of enteral feeding products manufactured and distributed by
Abbott Nutrition should be confident that there is enough product in
the marketplace to meet new and on-going demand for enteral feeding
pumps and sets.
"With the exit of Abbott Nutrition from the enteral device feeding
market, we are seeing some confusion from clinicians and customers
regarding pump and set availability," said Mike Henderson, Group Vice
President of Operations for Moog. "From Moog's perspective, we are
confident that our strategy and manufacturing plans assure that
current and future customer needs can be met."
Upon the announcement by Abbott's management regarding its market
exit, Moog negotiated the re-purchase of all Moog EnteraLite(R)
Infinity(R) assets from Abbott's inventory. This allows current
Abbott customers, buying under existing agreements, to continue to do
business as usual with Moog. Additionally, set acquisitions will
continue with Abbott until February 16, 2013. After this date, Moog
will provide administration sets to customers, and will honor all
existing terms and agreements previously held by Abbott.
Moog provides enteral feeding pumps that are suitable for both
clinical and home use. Our pumps also provide an easy transition from
a clinical setting to the home. Some key features include:
-- A total weight that is less than 1 pound and designed for both pole
and carry pack use
-- More precise flow rates from 0.1 mL/hour to 600 mL/hr
-- Maintains +/- 5% accuracy when used at any flow rate
-- Rugged design to eliminate the need for regularly scheduled
-- Easily cleaned by rinsing under running water
-- Purple safety screw connectors are available to prevent accidental
connection to IV tubes
-- Comprehensive product training and support available
While the Infinity(R) EnteraLite(R) is best known for home healthcare
use, Moog's enteral feeding pumps are gaining popularity in clinical
settings due to their ease of programming, quiet operation and the
total cost of ownership value they provide to facilities.
"Our goal is to help clinicians and patients manage feeding schedule
compliance," added Mr. Henderson. "Moog's market leading product line
of ambulatory enteral feeding pumps are at the forefront of providing
patients a more typical lifestyle and clinicians the ability to focus
on other areas of care."
