Sandro is a sportsman from Switzerland, who loves to climb mountains along with his Home Artificial Nutrition backpack which helps him reach every peak
Sandro has needed clinical nutrition for several years, currently via a small bowel tube. For this reason, his backpack with the enteral pump and nutrition is his constant companion. He has always been very upfront about his condition - it was important to him that his family, friends, and colleagues know his situation. Sandro’s main hobbies are sports, and he spends a lot of time in the mountains, skiing in winter and hiking in summer. “You can't be quite so spontaneous with a feeding tube - last-minute flights are not possible and lying on your stomach in bed isn't quite as easy as it used to be. However, everything else is fine, really”, he says.
