Eakin Japan recently attended JSSCR in Kofu, Japan.
This marked the launch of Soft Convex and Paediatric Pouches in Japan. The reception from nurses was extremely positive. This was a great opportunity to meet with Japanese WOC nurses and discuss the benefits of Soft Convexity.
We also displayed Cohesive Seals, Eakin Wound Pouches and the accessories range, which led to a very busy and successful conference.
Our recently appointed Japanese distributor, Solve Corporation, launched our complete range of Wound Pouches at a conference this month.
Japanese ET nurses were delighted to have access to the comfortable, skin friendly, cost effective and time saving pouches to help them in their day to day work managing fistulas, multiple or irregular stomas and high-output wounds. They were particularly impressed with the flexible Cohesive skin barrier on the pouches and the option to use an Access Window to view, dress or irrigate the wound.

Solve Corporation were pleased to have the opportunity to welcome Dr. Grace McGroggan, TG Eakin Ltd to the conference to present her enzyme study, ‘Are all ostomy seals equal?’ Grace’s findings, in conjunction with Queen’s University Belfast, concluded that Cohesive® seals are the most absorbent seals on the market. In addition, they are the most effective at binding aggressive faecal enzymes, lipase and elastase, and therefore stopping them from harming the skin.
We are pleased to announce the launch of eakin Cohesive SLIMS®, Surround Skin Protectors and Release Adhesive Remover in Japan.
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new product in the eakin range, Protect™ Barrier Film. eakin Protect™ is an advanced barrier film designed to protect the skin against harmful bodily fluids, excoriation and harsh medical adhesives. With its quick drying formula Protect™ dries in seconds to form a durable silicone film on the skin. And with added Vitamin E, Protect™ will nourish and moisture the skin whilst at the same time providing the optimum in skin protection. Similarly to eakin Release™ Adhesive Remover, Protect™ has a fresh spearmint scent and a non-sting formula which means no pain on application.
Whilst use of Protect™ with other creams, oils or lotions is not recommended as it may reduce its effectiveness, the combined use of eakin Release™ Adhesive Remover and Protect™ Barrier Film is ideal.
