Ostomy Care: Eakin Cohesive Seals
Posted on January 12 2012
TG Eakin Limited is based in Northern Ireland and has been designing and manufacturing ostomy supplies since 1974. As a pharmacist, Tom Eakin became consumed with improving the quality of life for ostomy and wound care customers. Products like the Eakin Cohesive Seals are now exceeding 15 million units sold per year globally.
Eakin Cohesive Seals help to prevent leakage and protect skin from irritation and eventual degradation. Designed for ease of use and performance, these seals mold comfortably around the stoma opening and fit snugly ensuring a waterproof barrier. Using a seal can help to increase the longevity of the pouch and can prevent, or even heal, sore and irritated skin.
To suit various patient needs and applications there are multiple types of Eakin Cohesive Seals available including small, slim, and large sizes. Small Cohesive seals are designed to be thicker and used with flush or retracted stomas for maximum absorbency and extended wear. Cohesive Slims are a great choice for individuals with minor skin irritation and change pouches frequently. Large Eakin Cohesive Seals provide large surface are coverage and provide better adhesion and are great for use with deep convex pouches.
