The FEUR System
The FEUR System offers discrete fecal incontinence protection, is easy to remove, and provides all a wearer needs to clean themselves up after a bowel movement. The FEUR System’s interior core of the pad is made from a highly absorbent nonwoven. The core is sandwiched between two outer layers of nonwoven fabric which are welded together to create the channel for the pull cord. The sophisticated design of the pull cord is integral to the entire FEUR System as the wearer simply begins to pull the cord at the first sign of a bowel movement, creating the absorbent pouch to contain the loose stool.
» Barbara Barat
Partner, Vemarei LLC
BIOGRAPHYIn 2016, Barbara together with two of her sisters, Theresa Farley and Janet Dobbins established Vemarei, LLC and began creating The FEUR System™. The impetus that drove them down such an unlikely path was that a loved one suffers from the effects of the C-diff virus which at times leaves her housebound. Taking The FEUR System™ from concept to its current state has been a labor of love for all three sisters who work their “day jobs” and then after hours at Vemarei; researching, communicating with suppliers, manufacturers and potential partners to further their cause.
