A simple yet innovative design can make all the difference in functionality and comfort. We worked closely with an Ireland based Medical Devices supplier on research and design of components for ostomy bag seals. For reasons of patient personal confidence, hygiene and dignity, sealing of the product was of paramount importance.
People depend on a reliable seal between their stoma wound and bag to avoid leaks and the associated anxieties. We worked with an innovative ostomy product manufacturer who tasked us with producing a two-part plastic seal that would avoid leaks but also enhance ease of use. Even the tightest seal is useless if it prevents quick and easy removal of the bag. Working closely with their R&D team, we created aluminium prototype mould tooling for a short-run of a male and female ring to form the seal. Ostomy bag users gave their feedback during trials. We tweaked the design and mould accordingly — fractions of millimetres meant the difference between an embarrassing or frustrating user experience and the complete peace of mind towards which our client was working.
