About Erland Care
It was never meant for Jofrid Erland to be an entrepreneur,
but when she got a challenge no one could help her with, she had no choice.
In 2007, her husband received colon cancer, and came home from the hospital with a stoma bag.
In order to prevent the leak from the ostomy bag, she had to take the matter into her own hands.
With needle, thread and various types of diaper she sewed her first prototype.
She realized that to get her husband back in social life, the odor and leakage from the ostomy pouch had to be stopped first.
FERD nominated her solution to this year's social entrepreneur in 2013,
an honorary award awarded to a company that has a particularly high potential for solving social challenges.
Development of the product was moved from the kitchen table, to one of the world's leading manufacturers of healthcare products B.Braun.
In 2017, Erland received a global patent on the Erland Care superabsorbent pad
After several years of research, development and studies with test subjects.
On the way, local investors, Validè and Innovation Norway had contributed with funding and guidance.

The challenge is solved, and Erland can now give more people with ostomy one less concern.
