ConvaTec, a medical device company, has launched its new Esteem+ one-piece ostomy pouch with Moldable Technology.
ConvaTec claims that Esteem is the first-ever one-piece ostomy pouch that brings, the clinically-proven skin and leak protection of Moldable Technology to ostomates who prefer the convenience of a one-piece pouch.
The new Esteem+ one-piece pouch incorporates Mouldable Technology, an elastic-like seal that rebounds to fit any stoma size and shape, providing an incredibly secure, snug fit.
This Mouldable Technology allows a person to simply roll and mold the adhesive to fit his or her stoma. In addition, the moldable seal also turtlenecks upward to enhance the seal and maximize skin protection.
The ostomy pouch is made with a soft comfort panel and has an advanced filter and an easy-view window on the front of the pouch. Featuring thin and flexible design, the one-piece ostomy pouch moves with the body and provides a slim profile.
According to the company, more than 95% of patients who started on Moldable Technology kept their skin healthy, and over 86% of those with pre-existing skin disorders had improved skin after switching to Moldable Technology.
ConvaTec Ostomy Care business general manager vice president Douglas LeFort noted that the company’s technology is clinically proven to keep skin healthy so that people with an ostomy can live life to the fullest.
"The one-piece pouch is an important addition to our Moldable Technology portfolio, which addresses a full range of customer needs and preferences," LeFort added.
