The More Comfortable Alternative for Enteral Feeding
As a caregiver or patient, we believe you have a right to the most comfortable and reliable gastrostomy tubes, that’s why we developed the MiniONE® line of buttons. Whether you use our Balloon or Non-Balloon g-tube designs, we strive to provide the comfort and confidence you deserve, minimizing leaks, balloon breaks and granulation tissue.
As the Leader in Enteral Device Innovation, we were present at the birth and development of the Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) movement. Our founder co-invented the very first low profile feeding device, often called a button g-tube, which we manufactured for distribution by others.
Through that last 30 years, AMT has consistently been the first to introduce improvements to g-tube button designs. Today, we design, manufacture and market an extensive range of innovative g-tubes items. View our MiniONE® products:
The MiniONE® Balloon Button product line offers a 37% lower profile external bolster and is made from medical-grade silicone to reduce skin irritation and improve patient comfort. The soft and flexible external bolster is easy to clean and less bulky. Available in 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 and 24F with varying stoma length sizes ranging from 0.8cm through 6.5cm.
The MiniONE® Non-Balloon Button is a great alternative for patients who do not tolerate balloon devices. It uses a bolster system on the button shaft to hold the button in place, instead of a balloon. Its lower profile design is easier to conceal under clothing than other obtrusive g-tubes. Available in 14, 18, 20 and 24F with varying stoma length sizes ranging from 1.0cm through 4.4cm.
The MiniONE® Capsule Non-Balloon Button offers advantages found nowhere else! It combines the advantages of a low profile device with the longer life of a non-balloon device. Due to inserting like a balloon device, the capsule technology dramatically reduces discomfort during placement. Available in 14, 18, 20 and 24F with varying stoma length sizes ranging from 1.0cm through 4.4cm.
MiniONE® Benefits: Granulation Tissue Reduction
By minimizing leaks at the stoma site, MiniONE® buttons may reduce granulation tissues in many patients.
“Upon switching to the AMT Balloon MiniONE® we began seeing a remarkable reduction in incidence and severity of hypertrophic granulation tissue (GT). The photos (below) are from a single patient. Photo #1 exhibits significant GT; photo #2 was taken two weeks later and shows a very significant reduction in the amount and severity of GT. this response was typical in a majority of our patients.”
