    Product #: 280622ALI

    Transports the bolus of food to the oropharnyx. Especially useful for people who have had surgery of the tongue. Food is placed in the spoon and the spoon is placed as far back into the oral cavity as possible. When the operating knob is pushed forward, the pusher delivers the food from the spoon onto the base of the tongue. More acceptable to patients than tubes because it resembles regular flatware. Made of plastic and stainless steel. Spoon is 6-1/2"L. Spoon bowl is 1"W (25 mm) and 1-1/8"L. Can be taken apart for cleaning and sterilizing.
