By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Coloplast A/S (Humlebaek, DK) has been issued patent number 10010443, according to news reporting originating out of Alexandria, Virginia, by VerticalNews editors.

The patent's inventors are Becker, Kim (Hillerod, DK); Matthison-Hansen, Kaspar (.ANG.lsgarde, DE); Pedersen, Troels (Nivaa, DK).

This patent was filed on June 29, 2012 and was published online on July 3, 2018.

From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "In connection with surgery for a number of diseases in the gastro-intestinal tract, one of the consequences in many cases is that the patient is left with an abdominal stoma, such as a colostomy or an ileostomy in the abdominal wall for the discharge of visceral contents. The discharge of visceral contents cannot be regulated at will. For that purpose, the user will have to rely on an appliance to collect the material emerging from such opening in a bag, which is later emptied and/or discarded at a suitable time.

"An ostomy appliance may be in the form of a two-piece appliance comprising a base plate and a collecting bag, which may be coupled to and un-coupled from each other through a coupling. This means that the base plate does not need to be separated from the skin of the user as often as exchange of the collecting bag requires. The base plate needs only be changed every third or fourth day depending on the user, whereas the collecting bag may be changed more than once per day."

Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "The invention relates to a coupling for an ostomy bag having a first and a second coupling, wherein one of the coupling members is adapted for being positioned on the wafer and the other is adapted for being positioned on the collecting bag. The second coupling member comprises an upstanding rib with a locking cam, which is adapted for cooperating with a notch on the first coupling member. In order to keep these two parts locked together in the coupled configuration of the coupling, a string is provided in a receiving channel below the two parts. Means for reducing the circumference of the string is provided and, therefore, the two parts are prevented from being removed from each other when the circumference of the string is reduced. When a string is used, a flexible coupling is achieved."
