When I think about innovation in ostomy products, one brand that comes to mind quite often is Salts. In this review, I’ll be looking at their Confidence Natural Advance system.
A crucial skill that anyone with an ostomy should know is how to measure their stoma. Not only does it help to prevent leaks, but it can help to extend appliance wear time, and save your skin!
In this blog post I’ll be answering a question that many new ostomates have: when should I change my appliance?
One of the most recognized products in the ostomy world are Eakin Cohesive Seals. The brand is so well-known that an entire category of products, barrier rings, are often referred to simply as “Eakin rings”, much like how we often use the name “Xerox” to mean photocopy. I’ve being buying Eakin Cohesive Seals for over a year, and it’s time for a review!
The ideal appliance will fit in a way that protects your skin while also providing a durable, and secure fit. Unfortunately, not every ostomate can achieve this balance so easily, so many will experience a breakdown of skin around the stoma.
