The Ostom-i Alert sensor is a discrete innovative device that alerts patients as to howproduct-image full their ostomy/stoma bags are so that they can decide if and when to empty them.
The device clips on to any ostomy bag sending Bluetooth alerts to an app on your mobile device telling you that your bag is filling up. You can set individual alerts as to when you wish to be notified. The device also captures guidance information about volume of output over a time period and allows you to email that information. In addition this data is stored safely on our website allowing you to access it at any given time. Each device is single use only and last up to three months
EASY SET UP
DOWNLOADING THE APP
Go to the Google Play store and search for ‘Ostom-i’. The app should appear on your screen. Download the app to your mobile or tablet. Once downloaded, you are ready to set up.
ACTIVATING THE SENSOR
Pull out the tab by the battery. This releases the battery so that it can connect properly. Use a pin or the end of a pen to press the button on the side of the main case of the sensor. A green light will light up to show that the sensor is working.
SETTING UP – THE ESSENTIALS
Click open the app to view the status screen. At the top of the screen there are 5 menu headings. Follow these simple instructions.
Step 1 Turn on the Bluetooth function on your mobile. The screen will move to the devices menu.
Step 2 Press the scan button at the bottom of the menu and this will let the app scan for your mobile device. This may take a couple of attempts. Under the section marked ‘Visible devices’, ‘Ostom-i’ should appear.
Step 3 Press the ‘Ostom-i’ button. You should now be connected. The screen will change to show a thermometer.
Step 4 Press the alarm tab. This will allow you to set the point at which the alarm sounds – anywhere between 1% and 100% full. If you wish to set a new alarm, press the ‘New Alarm’ button. You can edit the alarms at any time.
Step 5 Connect the Ostom-i Alert to your bag as shown. The optimum position is usually about three quarters of the way down but you should alter this to suit your own needs.
You are now ready to use the Ostom-i Alert.
By pressing the ‘Your Details’ tab, you can fill in 4 pieces of personal information. The key is to enter a username and password. These are the same details that you will need when you log in to the website to view your data. The remainder of the information will enable you to use the collected information when the alarm goes off. You DO NOT need to complete these in order for your Ostom-i Alert to work. Entering a patient number may or may not be relevant to you.
By using the ‘Report Frequency’ section it is possible to see a daily, weekly or monthly report. When the alarm goes off, Ostom-i records the volume and time of output and will generate a graph that collates this information.
The ‘Email Address’ tab allows you to send your report to up to 5 different addresses. This may just be to yourself or a family member – or may include your doctor. Once set up, this happens automatically but can be changed at any time.
