Brava Elastic Barrier Strips are designed to protect the skin around the barrier of a stoma created by ostomy surgery, which is a life-saving surgery that changes the way urine and stool exit the body. Barrier strips are constructed with elastic technology, which allows them to easily follow the contours of the body. Because they are incredible flexible, you can easily bend and stretch, which adds a level of peace of mind to daily activities. The Coloplast skin care science used to develop Brava Elastic Barrier Strips makes them highly durable and flexible, which minimizes potential roll-up and provides longer wear times. They feature thinner edges that allow the strips and barrier to remain smooth against the skin.
