Coloplast develops products and services that make life easier for people with very personal and private medical conditions. Working closely with the people who use our products, we create solutions that are sensitive to their special needs. We call this intimate healthcare.
Our business includes ostomy, continence, and wound and skin care. We operate globally and employ more than 7,000 people.
It all started back in 1954. Nurse Elise Sørensen was concerned by the dramatic change in her sister Thora’s lifestyle following an ostomy operation. Thora no longer dared to go out, fearing that her stoma would leak in public. Elise was determined to help her sister out of her isolation.
She came up with the idea of an ostomy bag with an adhesive ring, which would make it fit tightly to the skin. This would prevent leakage and give her sister – and thousands of people like her – the chance to return to their normal life.
Today, our business includes ostomy care, urology and continence care and wound and skin care. In all these areas, we are guided by Elise’s passion and commitment. Like her, we work closely with people who have intimate healthcare needs. We listen to their needs and respond with products and services that make their lives easier.
We have been at the forefront of ostomy care innovation since our inception. We invest considerable time, money and innovative scientific thinking into developing products which meet the needs of our customers. We actively involve both professional and user groups, and listen carefully to what they say. We firmly believe that dialogue creates innovation.
