Stomal prolapse presents a major obstacle in medical treatment that consists of recurred manual or surgical operations leaving patients with expensive cost, invasive procedure, and uncomfortableness for them to bear. The Anti-stomal Nolapse device proves to be an achievable method that offers a lesser invasive option that eliminates frequent recurrence of the stoma while concurrently enhancing patient comfort. This study explains a complete research approach that involves tear testing and simulated testing used to evaluate the device's mechanical qualities and performance. Tear testing is performed on manufactured devices with different incision depths in order to seek a defined acceptability standards for the integrity of devices under mechanical stress. Simulated use testing will be conducted in order to imitate surgical conditions to evaluate device performance in clinical environments. On the scale of impact, this project can potentially lead to a better medical performance to improved patient experiences, a new methodology of medical procedures, and potential economic advantages. Through the provision and application of Anti-Stomal Nolapse can bring new improvements in today's stoma care, minimally invasive that alleviates patient's uncomfortableness during procedures, and a new alternative towards overall quality of life.
