Developed in Norway by an ostomy patient with physician and nurse consultation, the new Stomico Ostomy Pliers are a two-piece, uniquely designed tool that assists with the replacement of ostomy pouches. This revolutionary cutting tool is ergonomically designed, safe, fast and effective.
Stomico Ostomy Pliers are designed to evenly and consistently cut the same diameter hole in adhesive skin barriers, face plates, wafers and flanges each time the pouch is removed and replaced. The punch-cutting process leaves the hole surface smooth with no jagged edges thus reducing concern over irritation or infection and simplifying the changing process. Stomico Ostomy Pliers are ergonomically designed and eliminate exposure to the inherent carpal tunnel and tendonitis risks associated with the repetitive motion of scissors and are easy to use by arthritis sufferers. Stomico Ostomy Pliers have received significant praise from medical professionals and care givers around the world.
Stomico Ostomy Pliers present a safe replacement for scissors which are used in Prison and Psychiatric Institutions. The “weapon” threat is eliminated as well as cross contamination issues.
Stomico Ostomy Pliers are a patent-protected device consisting of punch-pliers and a screw-on circular cutting disc. The cutting disc has been manufactured in 1MM increment sizes ranging from 17mm to 43mm. Anticipating the needs of hospitals and clinics, and in some countries- pharmacists, a Health Care Professional Kit is available, packaged in a rugged attaché case with laser cut, contrasting color foam, containing punch pliers, a full range of cutting discs, and stoma rules.
Initially released and sold only in Norway, Stomico Ostomy Pliers are now exclusively manufactured in the United States in an ISO certified, FDA registered facility and are being offered world wide. Stomico Ostomy Pliers are designed for both one piece and two-piece systems. With practice of just 1 or 2 times, it takes seconds to punch a clean, consistent hole in the ostomy appliance.To learn more about Stomico Ostomy Pliers, click here.
