The majority of participants in the study found Vitala™ CCD easy to apply (76%), remove (99%) and dispose of (100%). More than four out of five users (83%) reported less odor than their usual device and three out of five (60%) said they experienced no noise while wearing Vitala™ CCD. The device was also reported to be comfortable by 94% of participants and its profile acceptable by 77% of participants.   At the end of the study period, approximately 70% of participants, who had used traditional pouching systems on average for more than six years, stated that they preferred Vitala™ CCD to their usual pouching system.(1)

"In developing this novel technology, it was important to offer a high level of control with a device that is comfortable, safe, and able to manage noise and odor. The results of this clinical study provide further evidence that Vitala™ CCD truly represents a new era in ostomy care."

Vitala™ is currently available in the Czech Republic, Netherlands and the United Kingdom with additional introductions scheduled for Austria and Denmark.  Vitala™ CCD is recommended for use a minimum of six weeks after surgery.  Full product use information is available in the package insert.  For more information about Vitala™ CCD, please contact the ConvaTec customer information center.
