Project Outline

A stoma is an opening created surgically on the abdomen for the elimination of either bowel or bladder waste. There is a high risk of skin complications developing in the area around a stoma.

With funding through Enterprise Ireland's Commercialisation Fund, Ostoform is developing and patenting a solution to this clinical need. The project can be divided into two stages.

  • Stage 1: Product Development
  • Stage 2: Patient Trials

Ostoform is a user-centred product that aims to improve quality of life for ostomates.
