Restoring control and quality of life within stoma care
Ostom-i Alert is a sensor that clips onto any ostomy bag and sends Bluetooth alerts to an app on a patient’s mobile device telling them when their bag is filling. Currently patients with stoma bags have no warning when their bags are filling. This results in overflows and spills, particularly at night. The incidents are distressing, embarrassing and reduce their quality of life and lead to additional health conditions including infections. This device allows patients to set personalised alerts for their bag. The device also captures useful information on volume of output which can be emailed to patient and clinicians.
