Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why would I choose to use a slim ring?
The Adapt Slim barrier ring is designed to be stretched and shaped like the standard version but offers a lower profile.
2. Does it matter which side of the ring is applied to my skin
No, either side may be applied to your skin.
3. My stoma is not round. Can I still use the barrier rings?
Yes, Adapt barrier rings can be easily stretched or shaped for a customised fit.
4. I used to use paste. Are the barrier rings better than paste?
There are many advantages to using Adapt barrier rings instead of paste. For some people, barrier rings are easier to apply and remove than paste. Barrier rings are more durable and tend to be more resistant to erosion from your ostomy discharge. Most people find that the barrier rings eliminate the need for paste.
5. Can I use this if my skin is irritated?
Yes*, Adapt barrier rings are alcohol-free, so there is no sting from alcohol when applied to broken or irritated skin.
* Irritated skin near the stoma should be evaluated by a qualified healthcare professional, who will help determine the cause of the skin problem and how to prevent further injury.
6. What is the advantages of the clam shell packaging?
The clam shell design packaging allows you to easily store any part of the Adapt barrier ring you havent used for use at a later time. It also allows you to easily see the remaining amount of Adapt barrier ring at a glance. The clam shell is also stackable for convenient storage and is environmentally friendly, recyclable and made from recycled materials. ♲
7. Is the formulation the same as the standard barrier ring?
All Adapt rings are made from the same hydrocolloid formulation. This formulation is flexible and provides erosion resistant extended wear benefits, to help protect your skin.
