Just like with the former insertion system methods, the other hand should stabilize the insertion tool to keep the tip in place in the TEP tract. If Tube Insertion is preferred, the loading tube can be detached from the folding tool and thumb and finger are placed on the second grip area spot higher up on the insertion pin.
When the Capsule Insertion method is preferred, the capsule is placed inside the loading tool and the insertion pin with the voice prosthesis is carefully advanced into the capsule while keeping that in place with the thumb and fingers, as shown above. When the voice prosthesis is correctly placed inside the capsule with the esophageal flange folded forward, the folding tool can be removed and the insertion pin with the voice prosthesis on top can
