How We Work / Medical Devices

Our Innovations

Danone Research & Innovation has been innovating, supplying and developing the full system of medical devices since the founding of the Medical Devices department in 1993. We have teams of engineers specialised in plastics ‘development’ (e.g. injection moulding, blow moulding, extrusion and assembling) and user interaction (ergonomics, safety, convenience) based in China, Germany and the Netherlands. They continue to work to develop a range of high-standard enteral feeding products such as feeding catheters (nasogastric and nasointestinal), percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) sets, administration sets, enteral feeding pumps and accessories, all of which support patients for the duration of their enteral feeding therapy.

Looking to the future with eHealth

The world of healthcare is changing fast. New wireless technologies enter the arena, enabling better connectivity between patients and their healthcare professionals. The hope is that more regular, real-time communication and data sharing will lead to better health outcomes for patients, which in turn will have a positive effect on healthcare resources and care.

The world of medical devices is no exception. At Danone Research & Innovation we ensure that our tube feeds and pumps evolve along with the new paradigms of care.
