One piece option

This option is attached as one item and removed as a single item.

The one-piece products consist of:

  • The pouch or bag that collects stool or urine.
  • The skin barrier which has an adhesive back to adhere to the abdomen with a hole in the centre part that fits around the stoma to protect the skin.

Some skin barriers include a tape border to help hold the barrier in place this is normally personal preference or where uneven skin causes problems in the skin barrier adhering to abdominal skin.

One-piece systems are available with either Closed or Drainable bags.

Pros of a one-piece system.

Easy to apply and remove. More flexible than a two-piece system as there is no coupling to join the two together

Cons of a one-piece system.

Every time a bag is changed it means removing the adhesive area from the abdominal skin which can cause irritation to the skin in that area.
