  Purpose

This is a non-randomized, open-label, multi-center clinical study to be conducted at approximately 5 investigative sites in the US that have expertise in the healthcare management of ostomates. Of the 25 subjects, this study targets a minimum of 15 current moldable users while the remaining users can be non-moldable users if moldable users can not be enrolled.


Condition Intervention
Colostomy
Device: VitalaTM

Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: A Multi-Center, Open-Label, Feasibility Study to Assess the Safety and Performance of the VitalaTM Continence Control Device When Worn With SUR FIT Natura® Moldable TechnologyTM Skin Barrier Products Over a 12 Hour Period

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 28 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Safety will be assessed by measuring the frequency of adverse events (AEs) relating to the stoma (including GI, and surrounding skin events) and stoma and peristomal vascularity.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Performance (Restoration of Continence) [ Time Frame: 28 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Performance (Subjective Assessment) [ Time Frame: 28 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Performance (Leakage Rates) [ Time Frame: 28 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 28
