New Dysphagia Management Product
An innovative new dysphagia management product designed to make thickening fluids very easy is being met with enthusiasm and keen interest in the aged care sector.
Chief Operating Officer of the Queensland manufacturing company Trisco Foods, Michael Tristram said he feels delighted and proud to introduce Precise Thick-N to the Aged Care Industry.
“Initial discussions with aged care workers and speech pathologists revealed there has been a major need for this kind of fluid thickener for many years, we couldn’t be happier to be the people to provide it,” said Tristram.
“Until now the choice of products for people with swallowing difficulties were either pre-packaged, pre-thickened drinks or messy powders,” he said.
“Powered thickeners have their own set of problems from requiring excessive stirring to mix them in, to inconsistent measuring between staff, and they can leave lumps that are hard to disperse.”
Tristram said Precise Thick-N is the world’s first liquid thickener concentrate and it provides the following for busy health carers:
- Being a liquid, it is easy to disperse in any fluid.
- The pump supplied for use with Precise Thick-N ensures an accurate, consistent dosage.
- The same bottle of Precise Thick-N can thicken fluids to all 3 standard levels of thickness.
- The single serve bottle easily fits onto the drinks trolley to immediately thicken drinks for teatime or on medication rounds.
- It is freeze / thaw stable and can even be used in hot liquids.
Mr Tristram said he has received many wonderful comments from grateful aged care facility managers who have already trialled Precise Thick-N with some of their residents.
“My favorite comment so far was from a facility on the Gold Coast, the manager rang to tell me a resident of hers just had her first cup of coffee in over three years,” he said.
