The purpose of the study is to evaluate leakage of a newly developed ostomy product compared to standard care in subjects with colostomies. Subjects will be asked to use each test product for 2 weeks - in total, the study period is 4 weeks and the hypothesis is to show that the newly developed ostomy product is significantly better to reduce leakage compared to standard care.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Degree of Leakage. Each Baseplate Can Have a Score From 0-24 Points Were 0 is the Best Possible Outcome (No Leakage) and 24 Points is the Worst Possible Outcome (Full Plate Leakage) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    Degree of leakage will be measured by a 25-point leakage scale (no leakage or up till 24 points of leakage), developed by Coloplast A/S. The subjects receive Petri dishes with pre-printed leakage scale on. The subject will place the Petri dish above the used baseplate and indicate where on the baseplate output appears. This is done by ticking of each area on the scale indicating the area of leakage.
