Working tirelessly for ostomates worldwide
Existing ostomy appliances have changed little in decades. Irrespective of age, limitations of current ostomy appliances impact significantly on ostomates' daily activities and psychological well-being.
Even the most body-confident ostomates find current products stigmatising and the lack of choice frustrating.
We believe that everyone living with or adapting to life with a stoma deserves ostomy care that not only delivers on functional needs, but that holistically understands stigmas and challenges that people with stomas will face, both physically and mentally.
Will it be easy? No.
Will it be worth it? Absolutely!
Life-long friends, Stephanie Monty, CEO and Founder of Ostique and Toni Schneider, COO of Ostique, are on a mission to offer patients an unprecedented step change in ostomy and wound care management that improves product functionality and tackles the associated mental health issues not currently addressed.
Stephanie and Toni previously pursued very different careers. Stephanie studied History at The University of Manchester followed by Industrial Design and Technology at Brunel University where she founded Ostique. Toni studied Law at The University of Manchester and qualified as a solicitor in 2014. However at the start of 2019, they joined forces to bring the Ostique vision to life.
Our vision is to provide innovative, affordable ostomy products that outperform current appliances by combining advanced functionality with customisable aesthetics thereby empowering our users and improving their quality of life.
We design products for ostomates, with ostomates. We aim to provide a range of beautifully engineered products that puts the power of choice back into the hands of our users.
