April 2018 – Six years after being awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for their outstanding achievement in international trade, Trio Healthcare has been recognised a second time by the Queen’s Awards.
Trio was presented the award under the Innovation category for its breakthrough patented silicone technology, which is improving the lives of ostomates around the world. It is the UK’s most prestigious business accolade which recognises the benefits offered to ostomates and their unique needs.
At one time or another, all ostomates will suffer from leakage and therefore damage to the skin, which has a dramatic impact on their social life and psychological wellbeing. To combat this, Trio has developed a unique, secure adhesive known as Trio Responsive® Silicone, that can be used around the stoma to provide a skin-friendly seal and a long awaited alternative solution to hydrocolloid.
Lloyd Pearce, Trio’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to win such a prestigious award for our contribution to ostomy care. Due to the stigma and embarrassment associated with body waste and bag leakage, a person’s social life and well-being is dependent on the ostomy adhesive and bag’s performance.
Too many people around the world were suffering from leakage and irritated skin, so as a company we have made it our mission to provide an alternative solution. Our products offer reassurance and comfort, so the wearer can get on with their everyday lives without the fear of sore skin.
The Queen’s Awards are presented each year by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her birthday, 21st April. The company will attend a reception at Buckingham Palace in June, hosted by HRH Prince of Wales.
