Keeping skin healthy

Having a well-fitting product solution plays an important role in preventing leakage and keeping skin healthy.
Good changing habits also helps maintain healthy skin.
By following the Apply Remove Check routine, you can make sure your appliance is more secure and dependable.

To protect your skin, it’s important to use the right technique to remove your appliances gently.

Remove gently

Regular appliance changes and gentle removal will help protect the skin around your stoma, keeping it healthy and free from irritation.
If you are using a drainable pouch and have liquid output, it is recommended that you empty the pouch before removal.
