All silicone protection … sometimes, your skin needs a little help.
If you’ve been using the current products available on the market for your stoma care, you’ll know all about the irritation, leakage and discomfort they can cause.
The use of our new Responsive Silicone® technology based materials provide a much better seal, don’t absorb wastes (that cause irritation), and are much easier to remove, without aggressive sticking to the skin.
Trio Responsive Silicone® products can be used in combination with any other ostomy product.
Skin is the largest organ of your body and usually provides an excellent barrier function. For many people however, keeping skin healthy becomes a daily challenge. Trio’s new Responsive Silicone® technology offers many benefits over traditional, outdated hydrocolloid ostomy devices.
Does not erode= Less skin irritation, more hygienic and zero residue remaining
Responsive fit = better skin protection
Easier to remove = faster and painless to change
Advanced silicone adhesion = no pain or skin damage on removal
Significantly, our adhesives do not absorb moisture and body waste and are therefore more hygienic to use. They retain their integrity and shape for extended wear time but allow the skin to breathe resulting in reduced risk of maceration and healthier skin.
The table below shows the difference between Trio’s Responsive Silicone® technology and traditional hydrocolloid adhesives:
|CLINICAL NEED||HYDROCOLLOID ADHESIVES||TRIO’S ADVANCED SILICONE TECHNOLOGY|
|Provide complete protection with no gaps and exposed skin||Always has gaps of unprotected skin around the stoma. Does not move in and out with the stoma during peristalsis||Mimics the movement of the stoma and never leaves gaps of unprotected skin|
|Instant Adhesion||Poor instant adhesion due to non-adhesive hydrocolloid fillers used in final composition||Instant adhesion due to low surface energy and high flexibility of silicone polymers|
|Ease of removal and reduction in damage and ‘skin stripping’||Adhesion increases over time due to the adhesive matrix flowing into skin (non – cross-linked polymer)||No significant change in adhesion over time (cross-linked polymer)|
|Hygienic||Absorbs faeces and urine||Non-absorbent but breathable to moisture|
|Clean removal (no residue)||Breaks down in the presence of faeces and urine||Maintains integrity and shape in the presence of faeces and urine allowing for one piece removal –leaves no residue|
