ConvaTec’s Vitala continence control device has been granted the CE mark for 12-hour daily use with a convex skin barrier.

Vitala is a pouchless and non-invasive device that provides temporary continence in people with an end colostomy. It works by sealing itself against the stoma to prevent uncontrolled release of stools, while allowing gases to pass through a deodorised filter.

The device’s design prevents the odour, noise and soiling during removal process, and makes the presence of ostomy less evident.

Vitala is indicated for use along with the ConvaTec Natura skin barrier, and is recommended for use after a minimum of six weeks post surgery.
