Tencar is the maker of The Choice Cap System- a prosthetic appliance for active-lifestyle colostomy and ileostomy patients. CEO and Registered Nurse Georgann Carrubba created The Choice Cap system after seeing the need firsthand in Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and cancer patients. Their device has greatly improved security and reliability compared to the traditional methods. The Choice Cap System adds another protective barrier to offer a greater resilience to motion and activity, giving the wearer protection against leakage, escaped ordors, or detachment that are common in the life of an ostomy patient.
Tencar won the 2016 Rochester Venture Challenge and is using the prize money to fund a medical study to finalize The Choice Cap product design.
