This UK manufacturer, established in 2006, is a privately owned company specialising in the development and supply of life enhancing healthcare solutions for patients following ostomy surgery. It also has a division producing veterinary skin protection products.
Leakage, skin irritation, discomfort and lack of security are amongst the most common problems associated with traditional ostomy care products, which typically used hydrocolloid technology. The UK company has worked to develop a new and advanced silicone technology medical adhesive, which offers many benefits over other medical adhesive and ostomy devices including conventional silicone gels (used across wound care) which do not allow the skin to breathe.
The company’s new silicone technology based materials provide a much better seal, don’t absorb wastes (that cause irritation) and are far easier to remove, without sticking to the skin. The product range includes silicone-based seals, gels, skin barriers and adhesive removers, as well as gelling and odour control sachets.
The company’s products are supplied to clinicians specialising in ostomy, wound and continence care and direct to consumers, with around 60% of its production now sold in markets around the world.
Due to interest from customers in Finland, Italy and Canada, the UK firm wishes to appoint distributors to supply healthcare professionals and direct consumers in these countries.
Partners should be experienced in the supply of products to the wound and continence care sector and work with the UK company to develop the market for its products in their appointed territory.
