ABSORB neutralises pouch odour, absorbs excess fluid, dissolves completely in the pouch and is safe and easy to use. ASORB contains a highly effective odour neutraliser to help eliminate odours inside the pouch. Absorb will simply dissolve over time to absorb the extra fluid of pouch contents and then flush away unnoticed.


Sachet containing absorbent, odour neutralising granules that solidifies stoma output into a gel, reducing leakage, noise and odour, whilst simplifying emptying and draining the stoma pouch. Intended for patients with a temporary or permanent stoma; but not intended for urostomy patients.

ACE Stopper

Medicina ACE Stoppers are small silicone plugs that are used to seal stoma sites at various parts of the body. They are soft and comfortable for a patient and come in a variety of lengths and shaft diameters depending on the size of the stoma. They perform three functions. Firstly, they form a seal in-between insertion of the catheter if the stoma is leaking. They also maintain the patency of the stoma if catheter insertion is difficult. They can also be used for any stoma of suitable size anywhere in the body. ACE Stoppers should be replaced after a maximum of 30 days. One ACElok dressing is included for placement over the ACE stopper to provide external fixation and cushioning. ACElok dressings are changed every 3-4 days or when they become soiled. Available on prescription

ACElok Dressing

The ACElok dressing has been designed for placement over the Medicina ACE stopper to provide external fixation and cushioning. The dressing allows easy access for washout procedures and can be used for 3-4 days or until it becomes soiled. Available on prescription.
