Customa Pty Ltd develops bespoke ostomy seals with the help of iPREP Biodesign
Customa Pty Ltd participated in iPREP Biodesign Round 3 2020.
Customa Pty Ltd develops custom stoma inserts for patients to ensure a “snug fit” within the stoma and over the skin surrounding the stoma. This technology helps prevent stoma leakage, ballooning and coupling failure and improves the overall stoma appearance on the body. Each bespoke device is personalized and manufactured to fit the unique topography of an individual’s abdomen. The iPREP Biodesign team provided recommendations on the optimal polymer for commercial use, reviewed TGA and FDA policy documents and regulatory requirements and evaluated methodologies on 3D scanning and printing technologies.
