Most fantastic product yet!
I was offered a sample of these and didn't read the fitting instructions. I didn't need them as every step is labelled 1,2,3,4. They were extraordinarily easy to use and once fitted onto my skin, I couldn't even see them! Extremely comfortable too which is always a bonus! I completed my sample evaluation form telling Clinimed how much I loved their new product and lo and behold, the very next day my bag leaked and because of the flange extenders being so very robust, I didn't have a problem at all and changed my bag safely. I think every ostomate should be given these flange extenders as they knock spots off any others I have tried!Justine Kelly - July 2018
The UltraFrame flange extenders are delightful to apply and remove, and contour round my hernia. I am an active Ostomate and found the extenders hold up under pressure. They certainly increased confidence that the bag wasn't going to come off unexpectedly especially in the heat wave.Mike Evans - July 2018
Flange extenders whilst on a cycling holiday
I have just recently trialled these new flange extenders whilst on a cycling holiday.Firstly they where a bit tricky to fit (although the instructions are excellent) and it took a few goes before I got it right. Once fitted there were very thin and barely noticeable. They stayed on whilst I cycled in 30C heat and also later on whilst sitting in the hot tub the flanges remained perfectly intact and the chlorine did not cause any problems with adhesion. They also coped with a kayaking session in the sea too, so sea water did not affect adhesion either.When removing the flanges I did not need to use any adhesive remover spray as they just peel straight off and also they did not interfere with the seal of my pouch either which is different to the current flange extenders I use as they have to be removed with the adhesive remover spray as they stick to the seal of my illeostomy pouch so that has to be changed as well if I want to remove the flange extenders.Therefore, I would thoroughly recommend these new flange extenders as they are very discrete and easy to remove. I intend to use them in the future for cycling and swimming and other activities when I require a bit of extra security.Anonymous - July 2018
