Periodic Reporting for period 1 - OSTOFORM (Novel Device for Improving Ostomy Skin Condition)
Período documentado: 2019-04-01 hasta 2020-03-31
Ostoform, through the H2020 SME Instrument, is developing a novel solution to help prevent stoma output from contacting the user’s skin – The Ostoform Seal with FLOWASSIST Protection. The solution uses a combination of absorbent and non-absorbent materials to direct the flow of stoma output into the ostomy pouch, thus keeping the user’s skin healthy and improving the quality of life for people who use an ostomy pouch.
Through the H2020 project, Ostoform will conduct a user trial and build on its data to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the new device. By the end of the project, the design and manufacturing method will be finalised, and distributors will be identified for device commercialisation.
