Single Use

Clearing Stem

The TubeClear System is comprised of a single use Clearing Stem and a reusable Control Box. The Clearing Stem contains a specifically designed flexible Wire surrounded by a Sheath. The Clearing Stem connects to the Control Box at the Diaphragm via the Magnet. The Wire moves backward and forward.

The Control Box contains a motor that moves the Clearing Stem Wire backward and forward very quickly inside the Clearing Stem.  This movement mechanically breaks up and clears clogged materials while the feeding tube remains in the patient at bedside.

The operator moves the Clearing Stem backward and forward manually for maximum effectiveness.  Various clog types require different techniques to achieve optimum effectiveness.
