Flexi-Seal Fecal Management System (FMS). Now available in the United States, the Flexi-Seal FMS is designed to dramatically improve fecal incontinence management. It is indicated for patients with episodic fecal incontinence with liquid to semiliquid stool. Flexi-Seal FMS contains a soft silicone catheter assembly.

Flexi-Seal diverts and contains fecal waste, protecting the patient's skin to prevent the risk of skin breakdown and infection from fecal matter.
