Hi everyone,
I'm starting to get leaks with my adapt barrier rings and think I'd like to switch to eakin seals. I get my supplies through Edgepark and don't see the Eakins in the catalog. Do they have them but they're just not listed? If not, where do you get your Eakins? (I am sure you can get them at a discount...looking for that too!)
Thanks all :)

Yep the Eakins are great. Just be sure you squish them flat between your fingers before putting it around your stoma otherwise the wafer tends to rise up in a day or so.
They also sell Eakin Thins. Rosemary

For cheap supplies ( but they don't take insurance) go to


Even with shipping it is cheaper for those items my insurance doesn't cover...and the kicker is they ship from Edgepark's address shocked
