A common concern and issue for ostomates is the security of their stoma appliance and the fear that their flange/baseplate may start to lift around the edges causing it to come loose. When this happens it often results in the changing of their stoma appliance more frequently resulting in reduced wear time and increased cost.
The new range of OstoMART Astoa Hydrocolloid Flange Extenders has been specially designed to secure the flange/baseplate to the body whilst helping to protect the skin from excoriation and maceration. Astoa Hydrocolloid Flange Extenders are extremely flexible with fantastic elasticity benefits which mean that you can bend and stretch and the tape will move and stretch with you. The Astoa range also benefits from a unique highly absorbent hydrocolloid adhesive system that minimises the risk of leakage therefore providing greater security and confidence. With a choice of Wide, Small and Large Flange Extender options, there is something for every type of body shape and the added potential for extended appliance wear time and reduced pouch usage.
The OstoMART Astoa Adhesive Flange Extender LARGE size is ideal for those who want to seal either half of their baseplate/flange with just one strip or who want to fully seal the entire baseplate/flange with the use of two LARGE flange extenders.
The Astoa Adhesive Flange Extender WIDE size is ideal for those who want a wider surface area to be secured to the skin to provide greater comfort and security.
The Astoa Adhesive Flange Extender SMALL size is ideal for those who may just have a certain area that they want to secure i.e. due to one corner of the baseplate/flange always being prone to lifting, or to join two large flange extenders to create a complete seal around the baseplate/flange.
