Finding The Right Baseplate

04/10/2022
baseplates ;

Keeping your peristomal (around the stoma) skin healthy is important for your health and comfort; however, this skin can become irritated and infected if pouches leak, allowing urine or stool to come into contact with the skin.

A well-fitting baseplate is your best defence against skin complications. Baseplates provide the necessary wall between your skin and stoma output, allowing you to remain secure, comfortable and irritation-free.1

To ensure the best fit between your baseplate and stoma, make sure you monitor changes in your stoma's size and shape. As your stoma changes, you may need to adjust the size of your baseplate and pouching system, or switch to a new system or baseplate. Your stoma care nurse can help you set up a measuring routine and also assist with any necessary size or system changes.

Traditional Two-Piece and Adhesive Coupling Technology™ Baseplate Options

Stomahesive® Baseplates for standard are designed to:

  • Offer reliable peristomal skin protection.
  • Adhere to dry and wet skin.
  • Be comfortable on the skin during wear and gentle to skin upon removal.

Suggested for people with a colostomy, whose stool is solid.

 Durahesive® Baseplates for extended wear are are designed to:

  • Be highly durable and resistant to liquid output.
  • Designed to "turtleneck," to help prevent leaks and help to provide added skin protection.
  • Be flexible.

Suggested for people with a urostomy or an ileostomy, whose stoma output is liquid to semi-liquid and/or high output. Also suggested for people with a colostomy when stoma output is a liquid consistency.

One-Piece Adhesive Options


ConvaTec one-piece systems feature modified versions of our Stomahesive® and Durahesive® technologies that are:

    • Thinner and more flexible than the baseplate in a two-piece system.
    • Designed for more frequent pouching system changes, with less risk of harming the peristomal skin upon removal.
