The pioneering design of the Embracing Life™harness is unobtrusive and comfortable to wear.  Patients can continue to wear the Embracing Life™harness during routine medical examinations such as x-rays, and can rest easy in the knowledge that there will be limited or no movement of the Embracing Life™ harness whilst sleeping.

Aside from its use for patients requiring a PEG tube, the Embracing Life™ harness can be utilised when other feeding tubes, catheters, or wound drainage tubes are required. 

The patent pending design of the Embracing Life™harness can be fitted easily by a patient or their carer.  Adjustable, it fits all shapes and sizes, including both adults and children.  

In addition, the unique design provides various points of securing one or more tubes across the patient’s chest ensuring further stability of the feeding or other tube.



The origin of the Embracing Life™ harness is no different. Whilst undergoing conventional treatment for a serious medical illness, a patient’s support network saw an opportunity to remove one aspect of the patient’s anxiety and discomfort, without compromising or interfering with their medical treatment. 

Surprisingly, the humble beginning of the Embracing Life™ harness prototype drew inspiration from a bra - an everyday female clothing item developed primarily for support and function that has improved over time.

Faced with the discomfort and associated complications of being fed by a tube for many months whilst receiving medical treatment, in particular securing the tube by adhesive tape, it did not take long for the patient’s support network to see an opportunity that would make for a more comfortable experience during what was a difficult and anxious period.

Unobtrusive and comfortable to wear, even during x-rays

The first all newEmbracing Life™harness is a comfort garment developed to improve how a tube, e.g. PEG feeding tube, is supported and secured on a patient’s body.  It is a safe alternative to the use of adhesive tape which, when used, has an associated risk of infection, leakage, reactions or the possibility of tubes being snagged.  This provides peace of mind in the knowledge that tubes are secured and stable.

Importantly, the Embracing Life™ harness does not interfere with any medical treatment. It is a safe, secure and comfortable alternative to using adhesive tape that can be considered by patients and their carer as part of an overall wound management plan.
