Ostomy Trials . . .
These flexible wafers are among the best fit & function that I've tried. They are comfortable and secure. All require remover wipes when separating from your skin. Some 'professionals' don't know all these rules.

The pH level of that ileostomy fluid makes sealing the stoma crucial. About the first minute of adhesion needs constant, uniform pressure, and here's the tool for that. Warm is even better.

1-5/16"
This helps that seal last 3× longer. The uniform pressure against body around the stoma can be optionally heated using a uWave with water in a coffee cup.

*Ring may be optional. It helps seal between stoma and Cut-Out.  The opening in ring MUST BE slightly smaller than Cut-Out to avoid trapping fluids.
When using a ring, a heated Tool is very beneficial. The thicker ring needs more heat or longer time pressed.

**Tape border (Hollister) is the last step.  The separated tape border helps smooth attachment, and it allows applying pressure with the Tool about 20 seconds sooner.
