Helps people to manage their stoma supplies.

“OstoBuddy is a super good app that helps you keep track of your stoma equipment. It's simply built up by clicking on a small `plus’ in the corner of the app and adding your products. And afterwards you can keep an eye on how much you have used and when. 

When you add a new product, enter the brand name of the manufacturer, what type of product it is (plate, bag, etc.), model number, what amount of product you have when you bought it and when to have a reminder to buy new. 

Then you can enter and specify when using a new bag, sheet etc. and even write notes if you have a comment. All the products you added to the app will appear on a list. Then you just cross which product you use, and then the app keeps track of the day you changed and how much you've left. 

The app will even remind you when you are running out and stores contact information on the manufacturers so you can easily order new. All in all, OstoBuddy is really easy to use”

Ostom-i Alert

Ostom-i Alert

Cost: The app is free, but the accompanying sensor (without which the app does not function) costs £49.00 / $74.99 / €54.99
Sensor for people who have had an ostomy: keeps the user informed about the contents level of their ostomy bag.
“The winner of the coveted Editor’s Choice award for best new product presented at the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) 2013 Annual National Conference goes to Ostom-i Alert. The Alert is a small sensor clipped to your ostomy pouch that reacts as the pouch fills. It then sends that information directly to your smartphone with a setting you choose personally, such as, “half full, or one third full”. … The totally delightful young inventor, Michael Seres, told me that in England the device has been very useful with non-compliant teenagers who tend to ignore their appliance when it gets too full, thus leading to accidents. I personally imagine using it to alert you if you’re medicated to the point of drowsiness, sleep deeply, or for a loved one with limited communications ability or the beginnings of dementia. The device can also be used in hospitals where medical professionals can safely monitor when your appliance needs emptying.” Broward Ostomy Association (United Ostomy Associations of America, UOAA), Broward Beacon, Fall 2013, p.14 |
