In November last year we posted an article about flange extenders. They are a fairly new product category on the market having online appeared in the last few years. We’re now getting into the second generation of extenders and are seeing some products that are a huge improvement over the initial products.
The article included some of our favourite extenders where we introduced them and explained what we liked about them. Since writing that article we’ve had a chance to product test Independence Products (UK) Acubond Strips which we’re happy to say is now our absolute favourite flange extender out of all the ones we featured.
The original article has been updated to include the Independence Products Acubond Strips including a full review of the product with it’s pros and cons and the reasons why we liked it so much. To give you a taster here are some of our favourite features:
- It’s made of acrylic foam, and not hydrocolloid or tape.
- The adhesive is phenomenal. It sticks exactly when you need it to, for as long as you need it to, and it is a complete dream to remove with no medical adhesive remover required during our test.
For more on the Independence Products Acubond Strips why not have a read of our full Understanding Flange Extenders article where you can also find reviews of other extenders too.
