Welcome to the Coloplast Canada exhibit booth, Honoured Corporate Partner, at the 41st NSWOCC National Conference.
Coloplast’s mission is to make life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs. Our vision is to set the global standard for listening and responding.
The Coloplast story begins back in 1954. Elise Sørensen is a nurse. Her sister Thora has just had an ostomy operation and is afraid to go out in public, fearing that her stoma might leak. Listening to her sister’s problems, Elise conceives the idea of the world’s first adhesive ostomy bag. Based on Elise’s idea, Aage Louis-Hansen, a civil engineer and plastics manufacturer, and his wife Johanne Louis-Hansen, a trained nurse, created the ostomy bag. An ostomy bag that helps Thora – and thousands of people like her – to live the life they want to lead.
A simple solution that makes a difference.
Coloplast is truly a global company – with products sold in over 140 countries and over 14,000 employees. Coloplast develops products and services that make life easier for people with very personal and private medical conditions.

Coloplast is committed to being part of the solution – together with the users and their healthcare professionals.

Biatain Fiber® Product Sheet
Biatain® Fiber with HexaLock Technology was developed to help you control exudate in challenging wounds. The unique HexaLock Technology integrates the gelling fibers in a reinforced hexagon net, giving Biatain Fiber strength to lock in exudate to reduce exudate pooling for optimal healing conditions. The dressing has high conformability that ensures close contact to the wound bed and reduces the risk of exudate pooling.

Not all hydrophilic catheters are made the same. Triple Action Coating Technology (TACT) enables Coloplast’s SpeediCath® catheters to stay smooth, stay bonded and stay hydrated for the protection of the mucosal lining of the urethra. This booklet takes you through the importance of maintaining mucosal health and will show you the difference our patented TACT can make to protecting the urethra from risk of damage, complications and UTIs. This technology can be found amongst all our SpeediCath® catheters, shown within this booklet. We encourage you to reach out with any questions.

Product Education: Sensura® Mio Concave
SenSura® Mio Concave is specially designed for people with outward peristomal body profiles. The curved star-shaped baseplate fits snugly over bulges, hernias and curves. The petals of the star-shape hug the body without creasing or folding. The elastic adhesive and fit zones ensure that the product follows the body movements and the stability ring inside the pouch ensures stability right around the stoma.
In addition to SenSura® Mio Concave, the document also speaks about the incidence of parastomal bulging within 400 days after surgery, based on a study in Denmark conducted among 5,019 ostomates.
