InventHelp Inventors Develop Comfort Accessory for Individuals with a Stoma (TOR-9486)

Share Article

InventHelp, based in Pittsburgh, Pa., is submitting the PROTECTOR ATTENUATING DEVICE (PAD) to companies for their review.

"I am a registered nurse who has had an ostomy for the past 20 years," said one of two inventors from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. "My experience of 'embarrassing sounds' over time led me to develop my prototype, which works extremely well to muffle these sounds. I also had an experience at a department store where a young child accidentally struck me in the abdomen with a hockey stick, and he came dangerously close to damaging my stoma."

They created a prototype for the PROTECTOR ATTENUATING DEVICE (PAD) to safeguard the stoma from potential damage or injury from blunt-force trauma. It also muffles potentially embarrassing sounds. The accessory offers added peace of mind and enhances self-confidence. It is designed to enhance comfort and safety. Furthermore, the device enables the user to continue to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

The patented invention consists of a hard-plastic disc fitted with cushioned, sound-muffling padding. It may contain indentations or ridges through which the sound of flatulence would be muffled by applying pressure. The two components may be used together or separately.

The original design was submitted to the Toronto office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
