Ran into this neat gadget online tonight. It appears to have a spout that directs the output into the bag and away from the stoma. It's ostoform flow assist seal and I guess they have pouches as well. I ordered a sample. 

@ Eric, have you ever tried this one yet?

There was some discussion about this product a few months back, but it wasn't available in Canada at the time :(

I'm hoping that someone who's tried it might be able to chime in. Looks interesting, especially if they have a stoma that tends to aim down.

Recently, I saw a demo of a similar product called Stomagenie which is quite impressive. The website is: https://stomagienics.com/. Not sure if it is available in Canada.

@veganostomy hi, I got an email today and I guess she tried calling me and I missed her call. She says she wanted to talk and had questions before getting my sample out so I hope I hear back from her.

I've sampled the Stoma Genie. It's used when changing your appliance, and the Ostoform Seal product is designed to be used with your appliance, so they are two different use cases.

I wasn't a fan of the Stoma Genie, mostly because my appliance changing method "just works" without the extra supplies or expense. But it may be more useful to an ostomate who's being cared for and someone else is doing their appliance changes.

@fred yes if I ever really do get the sample I will be sure to post about it. She has not returned my call and said in the message that she won't be sending it until.she talks to me. When I try returning her call it says this number is not accepting calls. Go figure.  Id really like to check it out as it looks pretty cool! Like a little slide in the bag that carries everything down where it should be. Id like to see how it works for the pancaking .

That youtuber Maggie uses/endorses it.  She's did a video for ostoform on their official channel.
