Colostomy Bag for Low-Resource Settings
Design Challenge
A variety of medical conditions require the creation of an opening, or a stoma, in the lower abdomen to allow for feces to exit the body. Our team is tasked with modifying the existing Rice 360 colostomy bag for low-resource settings. Major areas of focus include improving leak resistance at the bag-to-bag attachment mechanism and increasing flexibility to improve user comfort.
