I have a peds pt that uses Relizorb on her continuous feed. She is very active throughout the day. The weight of the cartridge causes problems. Sometimes it pulls on her GB. If you wrap the tubing and attach her backpack like you normally would, the weight of the cartridge pulls some of the tubing loose. The tubing is constantly kinking next to where the cartridge attaches. I end up having to hold her backpack, which isn't practical. Also I can't play with her then. Does anybody else use Relizorb for continuous feeds that has found solutions to these weight issues?

Have you tried running this past the manufacturer? Sometimes their professional/customer HELP dept can assist.
