Ostomy Supplies

  1. Experiencing leakage from your ostomy?

    Leakage of ostomy output can cause skin problems and embarrassment. Spotting signs of leakage early can help you stop a potential skin problem even before it develops. Your stoma can change in size, so you should measure it regularly to make sure your barrier opening is still the right size. If the skin around your stoma is uneven or has bulges, this is a very likely cause of leakage. Even tiny creases can cause output to seep under the ostomy barrier. If the skin is moist, the leakage might have happened because the moist skin surface makes it harder for the adhesive to stick. These accessories are designed to reduce leakage and protect your skin.

  3. Discovery may help nerve regeneration in spinal injury

    Scientists at the Universities of Liverpool and Glasgow have uncovered a possible new method of enhancing nerve repair in the treatment of spinal cord injuries.
    It is known that scar tissue, which forms following spinal cord injury, creates an impenetrable barrier to nerve regeneration, leading to the irreversible paralysis associated with spinal injuries. Scientists at Liverpool and Glasgow have discovered that long-chain sugars, called heparan sulfates, play a significant role in the process of scar formation in cell models in the laboratory. Research findings have the potential to contribute to new strategies for manipulating the scarring process induced in spinal cord injury and improving the effectiveness of cell transplantation therapies in patients with this type of injury.
