Royal seal of approval for pioneering silicone ostomy product improving quality of life for patients
A life changing silicone adhesive that prevents abdominal stomas from leaking has won the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise.
Trio Healthcare received the award under the Innovation category, for its breakthrough patented silicone technology, which has improved the lives of ostomates.
Abdominal stomas are surgically created intestinal openings which are a result of colitis or Crohn’s treatment. All ostomates suffer from leakage and damage to the skin, which dramatically impacts their social life and wellbeing.
To combat this, Trio has developed a unique, secure adhesive known as Trio Responsive® Silicone, which surrounds the stoma, providing a skin-friendly seal whilst maintaining a secure connection.
Lloyd Pearce, Managing Director from Trio, said: “We are delighted to win such a prestigious award for our contribution to ostomy care. Due to the stigma associated with body waste and bag leakage, a person’s social life and well-being is dependent on the ostomy adhesive and bag’s performance.”
