Wear time and security are paramount for all ostomates. EuroMed’s skin-friendly hydrocolloid adhesive, with its tapered edges and low friction polyurethane film backing provides both.
“Our new half circle and third circle shaped Ostomy Elastic Barrier Strips reduce the risk of roll-up of a user’s ostomy wafer. It leaves the ostomy wafer in place thus providing the user with peace of mind during everyday activities. Additionally, the tapered edges and the very low friction film, which is proprietary to EuroMed, combined with the elasticity of the skin-friendly adhesive, gives the user the right fit to his/her body shape as it follows the contours of the body" said Ravi Ramjit, PhD, Vice President of R&D. Dr. Ramjit also states that there are many other uses for such Strips such as providing protection in between skin folds and chaffing under the breast.

With the increase in surgical procedures to address various gastrointestinal illnesses, ostomy accessories are an increasingly important facet of stoma care, and EuroMed’s Ostomy Elastic Barrier Strips stand ready to meet and exceed the requirements of providing comfort and security to its users.
