This device operates like Colosafe device, except this one has an attached inflatable cushion. This inflatable cushion is mounted on the flange surface facing the stoma (the skin). It is used for patients with an end colostomy with a prolapse (small protruded segment of the colon above the surface of the skin. This cushion has a check valve for inflation and deflation.
The supplied cushion is already inflated with air. Patient may adjust the volume by inflating and deflating the cushion as needed to achieve maximum comfort with no pressure from the flange against the prolapsed section.
