The Choice Cap System is a prosthetic appliance for active-lifestyle colostomy and ileostomy patients. Key to its security and reliability is a “double flanged” wafer attachment method, which includes a lightweight, airtight, molded water resistant cap to be worn with or without the traditional soft inner pouch.
This added protective barrier offers greater resilience to motion and activity, giving the wearer protection against leakage, escaped odors, or detachment which are common in the life of an Ostomate.
The Choice Cap can be used as often as you feel comfortable. Typical uses including:
As a result of using the Choice Cap, wearers often report increased confidence, self-esteem, body image and quality-of-life for ostomy patients of any age.
The key element of the Choice Cap System is an increase from one flange for connecting the waste disposal bag, to two flanges; one for the waste disposal bag and one for a protective cap. This cap can hold the waste disposal bag and offer significantly more secure ostomy device for patients. The cap is designed to be used with or without the bag as the double flange wafer accommodates one or both.
The Choice Cap System consists of three main elements:
The Choice Cap is a plastic prosthetic device, which is used by Ostomates for the excrement of fecal body waste. It attaches to the wafer on the outer flange (ring) with a locking system. After attaching the Choice Cap to the flange, a fabric cover may be placed over the cap thus concealing the device. One Choice Cap is designed to last approximately 2 weeks.
Dual-Flanged Choice Cap Wafer
The Choice Cap Wafer is specifically designed to function with the system. It performs multiple roles in the Choice Cap System. Much like a traditional wafer, the Choice Cap Wafer adheres to the skin over the stoma to attach a waste pouch. Additionally, The Choice Cap Wafer is also fitted with an outer flange for attachment of the Choice Cap device itself.
Pouches come into sizes, larger pouch and small pouch that tucks inside the cap which is specific to the Choice Cap System. It attaches to the inner flange (ring) of the wafer and can be tucked inside of the Choice Cap for an increased level of protection and security.
The Choice Cap can be cleaned and disinfected with soap and warm water, and air or toweled dry. Lifespan is expected to be approximately 2 weeks. Fragrances may also be sprayed into Cap to help decrease unwanted odors. Depending on use, the product-life of the wafer and pouch should equal those you’re currently experiencing with other products.
