It all started back in 1954 for Coloplast. Nurse Elise Sørensen was concerned by the dramatic change in her sister’s lifestyle following an ostomy operation. Thora no longer dared to go out, fearing that her stoma would leak in public. Elise was determined to help her sister out of her isolation. She came up with the idea of an ostomy bag with an adhesive ring, which would make it fit tightly to the skin. This would prevent leakage and give her sister – and thousands of people like her – the chance to return to their normal life. A simple solution with great significance. Today Coloplast ostomy supplies are on the cutting edge of innovation and they are happy to provide product samples by calling 1-800-533-0464.
