Enjoy More Flexibility with Esteem™+ Flex and Soft Convex

What is convexity?

There are two types of skin barriers within ostomy pouching systems1:

  • Flat - a skin barrier which is flat against the skin surface.
  • Convex - an outward curving of the skin barrier towards the skin.2,3

All bodies are different. Convex skin barriers are designed to help manage irregular stomas and abdomens to help reduce leakage and simplify stoma management.

  • Convexity applies a uniform pressure to the immediate peristomal skin, improving the projection of the stoma for drainage.4
  • Convexity helps maintain a secure seal between the pouch and the skin.5

The Esteem™+ Flex convex system combines the comfort and freedom of flexibility with the firmness of convexity. The Esteem™+ Soft convex system combines flexibility with a shallow convexity.​

Think convexity may be right for you?

  • Are you experiencing leakage?
  • Does your stoma sit at or below skin level?
  • Do you have skin folds, creases or a soft abdomen?
