We were founded by Neal Piper, whose 3-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer in 2019. Neal and his family saw firsthand how antiquated the current feeding tube system is – requiring children to live a sedentary lifestyle while attached to cumbersome equipment and inability to share data effectively with their physician. He assembled a team of experienced professionals from some of the most successful companies in diabetes care, spine care, and software development to build the world’s first truly portable, connected tube feeding system.
