Cascade is a soft waterproof PVC protector that
provides a barrier to prevent shower water from
entering a stoma thereby improving the patient's
confidence to shower routinely.
The neckband is soft and has elastic to form a
comfortable yet firm seal around the neck to prevent
water seeping below the protector. The backing is a
knitted polyamide material that will absorb moisture
from surrounding wet skin and provide a comfortable
warm feel, unlike other products that may initially feel
cold to the skin.
From a safety perspective, the polyamide backing also
prevents adhesion to the skin or stoma button when bib
is wet, as adhesion from unlined protectors can reduce
the ability for a patient to breath properly.
For added comfort and breathability the Cascade
Protector can be worn over a Sofshield Protector or
alternative filter, however, this is not essential due to
the backing material.
The protector is an aesthetically
pleasing white in colour and supplied in pairs to allow
for drying between showers.
