Evaluation of the Influence of Output on Skin Wearing a New Adhesive

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03200431
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
The purpose is to investigate the impact real output has on the peristomal skin covered by a newly developed adhesive.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 6 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Evaluation of the Influence of Output in Skin Covered by Newly Developed Adhesives
Actual Study Start Date : June 26, 2017
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 11, 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : December 11, 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Test of a new adhesive strip
This is a sub-study testing the effect of real output applied under two adhesive strips on the skin after 24 hours. The adhesive strip is not yet part of a marketed ostomy device.
Other: New adhesive strip
This is a newly developed strip.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Trans epidermal water loss [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    The trans epidermal water loss is measured on the peristomal skin using a probe. The Tran epidermal water loss is a measure for the skins barrier function. There is always a loss of water from the skin due to natural evaporation. However, when the skin barrier is damaged the evaporation of water increases leading to a higher trans epidermal water loss. Thus, trans epidermal water loss is used to assess the damage to the skin.
