Flexi-Seal Fecal Management System Upgraded for Ease of Use

May 5, 2008 – ConvaTec said its Flexi-Seal Fecal Management System (FMS), a temporary containment device indicated for immobilized, incontinent patients with liquid or semi-liquid stool, has been redesigned for easier use and storage.

The Flexi-Seal FMS was designed to safely and effectively divert fecal matter, protect patients’ wounds from fecal contamination, and reduce the risk of both skin breakdown and spread of infection, such as Clostridium difficile (C. difficile). The improved Flexi-Seal FMS retains all of the original product benefits, but also now includes recyclable and re-closeable molded plastic packaging that is 25 percent smaller than the original package size and allows for easy storage of collection bags and syringes, said the company. The system also features a new blue irrigation port that allows for immediate identification, a re-labeled syringe that is precisely marked to 45 mL and measures the exact amount of water or saline necessary and a pocket size package insert.
