Understanding the 5 Characteristics of Convexity

Ostomy baseplates come in different shapes, for different body and stoma types. Understanding the 5 key characteristics of convexity can help clinicians to be able to select a convex baseplate that may work best for their patient.

5 Characteristics of Convexity1

Depth

An animated GIF showing the measurement of convex baseplate depth, from the apex of the dome to the base.

The depth of the convex baseplate Is defined as the measurement from the apex of the dome to the base.

Compressibility

An animated GIF showing the compressibility of a convex dome, by compressing the center of the convex baseplate.

Compressibility is the capacity of the convex dome to be displaced or flattened.

Flexibility

Animated GIF displaying flexible convex baseplate bending when pressed at the top and bottom.

Flexibility is how easily the convex baseplate can bend.

Tension Location

Animated GIF illustrating convexity tension on peristomal topography, exerted by the convex dome.

Tension location is the position in which the convex dome exerts downward and outward forces on the peristomal topography.

Slope

An animated GIF showing the slope of a convex skin barrier, from the base to the apex of the dome.

The slope is the angle from the base of the convex baseplate to the apex of the dome.

Choose between Durahesive® and Modified Stomahesive®

Liquid output? Try Durahesive®. It's designed for people whose output is mostly liquid. It swells up, or 'turtlenecks' to provide a secure seal and extended wear time. 

Semi-formed or formed output? Try Modified Stomahesive®. Ideal for people whose output is semi-formed or formed. It adheres to both dry and moist skin and features a touch of mineral oil that makes the barrier more flexible and easier to remove.
