Each stoma guard comes with an elastic ostomy belt, which attaches with Velcro and allows for manual adjustment of the belt tension.
This stoma guard is intended to protect the stoma from external contact caused by things like clothes and seatbelts.
It also allows patients to live a more active lifestyle without needing to be concerned about damaging the stoma through impacts that occur during daily activities and sports.
It prevents leaks that can be caused by physical activity, sweating, or spending time in the water.
Since it applies direct pressure to the appliance, it extends the wear-time of the wafer and can be used as a parastomal hernia belt.
The protective shield of the stoma guard on this ostomy belt is held away from the stoma by a shape that is unique only to Stomaplex along with a pad. This stoma guard is secured in place by a detachable elastic ostomy belt. The stoma guard protects the stoma from inadvertent contact.
The pad applies pressure on the ostomy appliance assisting in its securement, thus reducing the risk of leaks from under the wafer. The guard and ostomy belt also provide parastomal hernia prevention.
