An Israeli feeding tube that could prevent tragedies

Guided by sensors, AI and electromagnetic navigation, Envue avoids the dangerous misplacement of feeding tubes in the lungs.

Feeding tubes are typically placed through “blind insertion,” guided by feel.

But of the 30 million feeding tubes placed annually — 9 million in the United States — some two to five percent end up in the tracheobronchial tree (which transports air into the lungs), resulting in a 30% chance of a collapsed lung or death. That’s close to 1.5 million patients worldwide.

Envizion’s Envue system uses a feeding tube with a small sensor at the tip. Another sensor is placed on the patient and maintains accuracy even if the patient moves.
