The new Stomico Ostomy Pliers offer an easy to use, effective, ergonomic alternative for ostomates who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.
Until the introduction of the new Stomico Ostomy Pliers, the only option was to use small scissors, often cuticle scissors, for cutting stoma openings in flanges, wafers, and skin barriers or to purchase pre-cut appliances. Scissors, especially small ones, not only present potentially serious long term problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis, but can be an immediate source of pain and discomfort for sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis.
Now, there is an alternative—the new Stomico Ostomy Pliers .The ergonomic handles are designed to provide a safe, comfortable grip while delivering the leverage necessary to effectively punch a clean hole in the flange or wafer. There is no repetitive motion which can cause immediate burning and discomfort and the potential of future injury. With practice of just 1 or 2 times, it only takes seconds to punch an even, consistent opening in the ostomy appliance-no jagged edges.
