Complications with the digestive or urinary systems after an operation can make the use of an ostomy bag a necessity.
It is of crucial importance that an ostomy bag should be easy to use and that its user feels confident using the bag in public if a normal lifestyle is ever to be regained.
Special emphasis was placed on creating an intelligible, user-friendly means of operation that could be used by both the elderly and visually impaired.
With the press of a finger on a spring lock, the bag’s connection ring is hermetically sealed.
