I have had a few jejunostomy tubes over the years and I've used various types of pestles and mortars (with stainless steel being the best) as well as twist crushers (which leave a lot to be desired) with mixed results. Due to joint issues I could no longer crush my medications that way. This machine has made my life so much easier. Since this was purchased, I no longer get clogs in my tube - a frustrating experience that used to happen regularly with the pestle and mortar, and has led to more than a few damaged tubes. I cannot express how grateful I am to have this product. To get a really, really fine powder the pills (especially if they have a coating) may need to be run through the machine more than once, but the resulting powder makes administering the medication a breeze.
This machine is awesome! It will help my elderly mother crush my dad's medicine. She has arthritis in her hands and he has a feeding tube. I was amazed at how well it worked.
I love this pill crusher. It's simply one of the best investments I've made. My son is tube fed and this product has saved my hands and wrists as well as perfectly crushing medicines for his tube. No more wrist and hand pain for me and no more clogs for his tube!!!!
