Prospective Evaluation Finds High Levels of Satisfaction with ConvaTec Moldable Skin Barrier
Date:5/28/2009

lts showed that the ratings were overall high for both groups regardless of baseline skin condition reported.

"The level of existing skin problems reported in the evaluations is close to that found in a previous clinical study, suggesting that the participants in this program are a representative sample of individuals living with an ostomy," added Hoeflok. "Our results on skin protection are therefore an important finding as it indicates the moldable barrier may be effective at preventing skin breakdown and protecting the skin in a variety of clinical settings."
