Equalizer - Maggie
I was excited to learn that Stomaplex is a new company with innovative products. In addition to the Stoma-Guards, the Stomaplex Equalizer is another one of their designs. The Equalizer helps to secure the application of the flange/barrier to the skin. Utilize it to apply equal pressure around the stoma-skin junction, seating the flange/barrier. This will help to prevent leakage at that critical intersection. The Equalizer is available in a variety of sizes and they are soft and flexible, allowing for contouring around even oval or irregular stomas, and they are completely washable and reusable.

The Equalizer Use the Equalizer right after you apply a new skin barrier. Instead of using your finger to apply pressure on the adhesive use the pressure from the Equalizer to create a better bond that will help prevent ostomy leaks and damaged skin. Press down for about 10 seconds and you'll feel more confident that the ostomy wafer is secured.
