PersonalFit™ PLUS sterile disposable pump set for Symphony®
PersonalFit™ PLUS pump sets for the Medela Symphony® optimise each part of the expression process to help ensure more infants can receive the benefits of a human milk diet. Our single-use sterile disposable version is a particularly convenient, easy-to-use choice for busy hospitals.
Innovative features of Medela PersonalFit™ PLUS
The PersonalFit™ PLUS sterile disposable pump set for Symphony® is part of Medela’s innovative PersonalFit™ PLUS range. All these breast pump sets have a groundbreaking design, based on Medela’s unique research and expertise.3
The characteristics of the pump set’s fully rotatable breast shield, including its oval shape and 105° opening angle, improve fit to the natural contours of the lactating breast to promote gentle pumping.3 It comes in a range of tunnel sizes to help ensure optimum nipple fit.
In addition, the breast pump set as a whole has fewer parts, that are larger and easier to handle, than those of standard pump sets.
All PersonalFit™ PLUS pump sets have integrated overflow protection (also referred to as a closed system) for increased levels of hygiene: a membrane within the connector helps stop milk overflowing into the tubing or motor during use. As a result, mothers do not have to sit upright when expressing, allowing them to find the most comfortable position for them.
Proven benefits of PersonalFit™ PLUS breast pump sets
When the new design was tested against the standard pump set in clinical trials, the results showed the following advantages.
More milk: After 15 minutes, the PersonalFit™ PLUS pump set obtained 11% more milk.1 There was also a 4% improvement in breast drainage1 – significant, as a key principle of maintaining milk production is to drain the breast well.4
More comfort: Mothers who rated their experiences of using the PersonalFit™ PLUS breast pump set described expression as feeling more gentle and natural. In addition, 100% of the mothers who tested PersonalFit™ PLUS positively rated the breast shield fit.2
More efficiency: Healthcare professionals observed mothers using the new breast pump set in hospital for five days. They recorded significant improvements in the cleaning and overall usability and handling of PersonalFit™ PLUS.5
Using the PersonalFit™ PLUS sterile disposable pump set
To make life easier for healthcare professionals and mothers, this single-use pump set can be used straight from the packaging.
After washing their hands, the user simply slots the breast shield into the connector, attaches the tubing, and screws on a milk collection bottle. The pump set can then be connected to the Medela Symphony® to start expressing.
Once used, the breast pump set should be disposed of immediately. Full details are in the instructions for use, which can be found below.
