What's the right ileostomy solution for you?

All bodies are different. With BodyFit Technology®, we make life easier for everyone with a stoma by securing the right fit, no matter your shape and whatever your specific challenges.

If you are struggling with your current pouch, why not take the Ostomy Check and we can help you with advice, support or direct you towards new products which may solve your issues.

stoma appliance for regular body profile

Regular profiles
If the area around your stoma is level or near level with the abdomen, the flat SenSura® Mio appliance may be the best fit. It has an elastic adhesive that follows your body during movement.

stoma appliance for inward body profile

Inward profiles
If your stoma is on an inward area, SenSura® Mio Convex could be right for you. It has integrated flexlines for comfortable bending without any compromise on security.

stoma appliance for outward body profile

Outward profiles
If your stoma is on a bulge or hernia then SenSura® Mio Concave may be the best fit. It has a curved-star-shaped baseplate that hugs the bulge or hernia for a good fit.

Do you need a flat, convex or concave?

The SenSura Mio range lets you choose between a flat, a convex or a concave baseplate. What's best for you depends on the area around your ostomy and the position of the ostomy.

If the area around your ostomy is deep-seated or uneven, a convex baseplate can help provide a good fit. The curved shape of SenSura Mio Convex provides support and comes in three sizes: Soft, Light and Deep.

  • The Soft Convex can provide the proper support in the area around the ostomy, if it is above skin level.
  • The Light Convex has a light curve that gently helps the ostomy protrude, if it is in level with the skin or in a slightly deep-seated area.
  • The Deep Convex is suitable, if your ostomy is below skin level and needs a lot of help to protrude. It has a deep curve, which provides a good grip.

A Coloplast® Charter professional can help identify which size is right for you.

If the area around your ostomy is an outward bulge, curve or hernia, a SenSura Mio Concave solution may be the right solution for you. It is the first appliance specially designed for outward areas. Its concave baseplate supports your stoma with less creasing and folding in the adhesive.

Full-circle filter prevents ballooning

Ileostomy solutions contain filters

Do you worry about ballooning or odour from the pouch? All SenSura Mio pouches have a full-circle filter which consists of a pre-filter and a carbon filter. The pre-filter protects the carbon and membrane from faeces and thereby prevents the filter from clogging. It’s proven to reduce ballooning by 61% (for ileostomies). (Coloplast clinical study, 2011, data on file.)

Secure fit with elastic adhesive

Your skin is elastic. Therefore, the SenSura Mio range features an elastic adhesive that fits individual shapes and follows natural body movements to maintain a secure fit.

Feel free to wear white

Do you worry that your pouch will be visible underneath your clothes? The SenSura Mio pouch is available in a neutral-grey, woven textile to optimize discretion under all clothing colours - even white. And because it's woven, the pouch feels soft against the skin and provides low friction against clothing.

1-piece or 2-piece solution? What to choose?

SenSura Mio 2-piece click

There are advantages to using both systems. It basically comes down to what's convenient for you.

If you use a SenSura Mio 1-piece ileostomy solution, the baseplate (flat, Convex or Concave) is permanently fixed to the pouch. To change the pouch, the whole appliance is removed and replaced. This will avoid the risk of any output hiding under the baseplate for too long.

With a 2-piece solution, the pouch and baseplate are two separate items. You will probably change the pouch more often than the baseplate, and you are able to switch among different pouch sizes depending on your need. This can come in handy when you are going out and may prefer a smaller and more discreet bag.

Do you prefer a click or a flexible adhesive coupling?

SenSura Mio 2-piece flex

If you want to feel reassured that your system is coupled correctly, the SenSura Mio with a Click Coupling has a wave-shaped lock-ring which gives an audible "click" when the pouch is securely locked to the baseplate.

Would you like to combine the flexibility of a 1-piece appliance with the convenience of a 2-piece appliance? Then SenSura Mio with a flexible adhesive coupling may be your solution.
