With the TIES® System the patient can live a life without the need to wear an ostomy bag.
TIES means Transcutaneous Implant Evacuation System. The implant is a titanium port implanted in place of the conventional ostomy with a lid on top. This allows the patients to exercise their needs when they see fit, rather than the conventional stoma emptying itself all the time into the bag, causing discomfort such as noise and smell.
"Hotswap was a central part of the project all the way from the creative design ideas to small scale production. Hotswap has contributed with experience, innovative ideas, design and useful network of niche suppliers. Our partnership has been a key success factor for us." - Mats Cardell, COO and Senior Project Manager at OstomyCure AS
