About: The Fluid Motion Backpack
I have so many good things to say about this backpack… I have never written a review in my life but this deserve it… my daughter (2 years old) runs tpn Lipids and milrenon plus a feeding pump. This backpack has make it so so easy to organize all of it and also gave me some style while being out and about and being a medical momma caring a medical back pack! Life changing! Thank you so so so so much!!!
This backpack is everything I hoped for. It is so fantastic to carry my enteral nutrition feeds and pump. There are so many access points, making it easy to connect my NJ tube. The storage options within the bag are excellent, and I love how many separated compartments there are. I absolutely love that I can separate my medical supplies from my uni/work equipment. The bag stands independently so I don't need a pole, which is a lifesaver. Honestly could not be happier. The bag was quite pricey once the cost was converted to AUD, however, really worth it for the quality, and the functionality. My only criticism is the straps being quite wideset, so not sitting on the back of chairs and only just staying on the back of my wheelchair. Not a criticism, but just a thought: I don't think it would be suitable for two bags/two pumps. I have a 1L Ensure feed and it takes up quite a lot of room in the bag, with my pump. This raises questions for those running IV fluids as well as enteral nutrition. I also wish there was an exterior side pocket for a waterbottle or phone. Otherwise, no complaints. Function aside, the bag is super sleek. I purchased it in the platinum colour, and I have had so many compliments on it! I'm so glad to support a business by and for chronically ill and disabled people. I can't recommend it enough. Thank you, Mighty Well. :)
My Mighty Well backpack is my third since getting my feeding tube and it is the one I wanted/needed all along.
It's shaping and stability is perfect! I works great for loading and stays upright even on the bed. I love it's thin profile because I can keep it on my back when sitting in a chair or even on the toilet. And I had no idea how much I would appreciate the zip-able access point.
I balked for a minute at the price. $150 is actually a completely reasonable price, but I was feeling overwhelmed by just how.much everything related to tube-feeding costs. But my spouse reminded me that the only thing I use more than my backpack are my glasses, and those cost a hell of a lot more! And I am so glad I listened to him, because this bag is worth so much more than what they charge! It is just that good of a bag!
Impressed with the versatility of the backpack. The reinforced bottom allows the bag to sit flush on the floor negating the use of a pole. Glad I found the Fluid Motion!
I got this backpack for my TPN which is 3.5L and I’m on it for 18hrs. This bag is truly amazing and has helped me go out and about with my TPN!! It’s practical but also cute and has made my life so much easier!! I found the bag on tiktok and immediately bought it. I live in Australia and with standard shipping it only took a week to come I truly recommend this bag to anyone in similar circumstances :)
