Kangaroo epump

The Kangaroo™ ePump system is the latest innovation in enteral feeding pump technology. When patients require nutrition through continuous feeding, intermittent feeding or feeding and flushing, Kangaroo™ ePump enteral feeding pump delivers in one compact, easy-to-use device.


The Kangaroo Epump Enteral Feed and Flush Pump with Pole Clamp is a simple­-to-­use, precision enteral feeding pump. It is easily programmed to provide patients with either continuous or intermittent feeding, and can provide automatic flushing capability when used with KangarooTM Epump Feed & Flush Sets.

±10% or 0.5 mL/hr, whichever is larger, with bag at 46 cm (18”) above pump, at room temperature 22° C ± 2° C (72° F ± 3° F), using a new pump set with less than the recommended 24 hours of maximum usage.

Occlusion Pressure:

15 psi (103 kPa) Nominal


Height: 16.8 cm (6.6”) Width: 16.3 cm (6.4”) Depth: 11.7 cm (4.6”)


1.1 kg (2.4 lbs), 1.2 kg (2.7 lbs) with pole clamp 
Housing:  ABS/Polycarbonate blend
Pump Set Door:  Polyester/ Polycarbonate blend


Use AC power adapter for wall outlet usage. Pump operates on 9V DC, 1.5 Amps.

New, fully charged NiMH Battery Pack delivers ≥ 15 hrs at 100 mL/hr feed rate. Approximately 15 minutes prior to complete battery discharge, a low battery alarm will occur (see subsection “Battery Low” in Section IX). When complete discharge occurs, the pump  will automatically turn itself off. The battery will charge continuously whenever the pump is plugged into a wall outlet. Eight hours of charging is required to fully recharge the battery pack.

Degree of Protection Against Ingress of Fluids:

  • MISTIC (Magnetic Intelligent Set Type Identification Connector) Feed-­Only vs. Feed & Flush
    Set identification system to ensure
    match between the pump’s user interface and Pump Set type
  • Automatic Anti­-Free-­Flow (AFF) System
  • Audible alarm to indicate errors or Pump Set loading conditions
  • Attitude­-independent design eliminates need for drip chamber on pump set
  • Sensor technology detects both upstream and downstream flow conditions
  • Continuous feed, intermittent feed, and flush capability
  • Auto­-prime feature reduces the need for time­ consuming manual priming
  • Hold feature with restart and Keep Tube Open (KTO) feature
  • Stores previous 72 hours of feeding and flushing history
