Flexi-Seal SIGNAL Fecal Management System. Now available in the United States, United Kingdom, and other key European markets, this system has been enhanced with key new features, including a signal indicator that pops to assist clinicians in determining when the device's retention balloon is filled to an appropriate volume. The new signaling feature works as follows: Once the appropriate volume of fluid in the internal retention balloon has been reached, a small bubble pops out on the fill port, located on the external tubing. When the indicator pops out and stays out, filing should stop and should not exceed 45 mL to prevent overinflation. Clinical observation has shown that proper inflation of the retention balloon minimizes the risk of leakage.
