Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of Ballooning in the Morfeus and SenSura Test Period. [ Time Frame: Daily or at every change of bag in a period of a maximum of 28 days ]
    Data will not be recorded at specific time points due to individual changing patterns (1-3 bags per day). Study subjects will fill out the Case Report Form (CRF) by themselves when changing bag. The subject is asked in the CRF among others the reason for changing bag (e.g. ballooning). Subjects will change bag according to their normal routine or when deemed appropriate. They are advised to change bag if it is filled with air and the air cannot be released through the filter within a specified time period.

Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: March 2011
Primary Completion Date: March 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: SenSura
The reference product is the CE marked and launched SenSura product which is commercially available
Device: SenSura
The CE marked ostomy bag filter will be tested for a period of 14 days
Experimental: Morfeus
The test product is the product with the proposed new Morfeus filter
Device: Morfeus
The new ostomy bag filter (called Morfeus) will be tested for a period of 14 days

Detailed Description:
The new filter has been developed in order to significantly reduce problems with ballooning and other problems related to filter performance in people with a stoma.
