Coloplast Assura Skin Barrier, by Coloplast, is a 2-piece skin wafer with belt loops. This barrier wafer is available in cut-to-fit and pre-cut options for those wearers who need a wide range to match their stoma openings. The range of features will benefit many different iliostomy and colostomy patients.
The Assura barrier features the click style fastener to make securing the bag and wafer together easy. It uses a mechanical coupling that will make an audible 'click' to confirm that the pouch is locked to the wafer barrier. These come either as standard wear or extended wear, in both flat, convex, and convex light shapes. The barriers are pre-cut as well as cut-to-fit.
Operating the Assura Click Mechanism
The pouch opening and the wafer is simply matched together and pressed firmly until a click is hears. To get the pouch into the most comfortable position to wear, it can be rotated into the desired position to accommodate your body's position (standing, lying down, emptying) without having to remove the pouch from the barrier. The mechanical coupling can also be repositioned to enable easy handling whether the user is left or right-handed. The pouch can be removed separately from the Assura spiral-adhesive barrier, allowing the pouch to be changed more frequently than the adhesive barrier.
SenSura Click Barriers are available shaped flat, convex, or convex light. These can be combined with drainable, closed or urostomy pouches, as well as a range of special solutions including a night drainage bag, minicap and much more. Coloplast ostomy 2-piece systems are size based on a color-coded coupling system. For instance, a barrier with a "red" coupling size must be matched to a "red" pouch.
The The Assura adhesive is a combination of materials designed for security and protection in for its spiral structure, including:
Secure adherence to skin
Absorption of moisture from skin - providing skin-friendliness and protection from irritation
