The Brava® Elastic Tape is designed to prevent the edges of the baseplate from lifting and rolling and keeps your baseplate securely in place. It is elastic so it follows your body shape and allows you freedom of movement. This can mean greater security and longer wear time of your appliance.

It is also skin friendly as it absorbs moisture.

It is placed on top of the edges of the baseplate and you can use one or two pieces depending on your need.

IMPORTANT! If you have any concerns – such as skin problems or how to use new products – you should always consult your stoma care nurse.

Order sample
  • If female, consider wearing a tight swimsuit when in water to help prevent the adhesive edges from rolling. 
  • If male, tights underneath your swimming shorts may help.

 

 

  • It may help to change your appliance a couple of hours before doing your physical activity. This way the adhesive will have time to settle while still being relatively newly changed.
