Who needs an Ostomy Belt?

The wear time of ostomy pouching systems depend greatly upon the security of the pouching system which in turn depends upon the construction of your stoma i.e. how it was made or how it protrudes out of the skin, and the skin around the stoma i.e. whether it is flat or with folds and creases. An ostomy belt is required in case you notice the following:

  • Premature lifting of the borders of your flange  
  • Consistent leaks at an edge/crease  
  • Shifts in the system with your regular activities

Some individuals simply want an increased sense of security. For people who participate in active sports, and like to soak in baths or hot tubs, or heavily perspire, belts provide enhanced support, especially in case where you are worried about the adhesion of the appliance. Belts can also be worn to sleep in order to prevent accidents while tossing and turning.

Sometimes convex pouching systems are required due to certain stoma and skin characteristics. Ostomy Belts help to pull such systems towards the abdomen, thereby increasing the tension of the flange against the skin in order to flatten the skin folds. This results in draining better into the pouch and preventing leakage of stool under the flange. A Stoma belt like the Nu-Hope Nu-Form Elastic Support Belt or the Coloplast Brava Adjustable Ostomy Belt can prove to be helpful in tugging the pouching system to your abdomen reducing those unwanted lifts and leaks. Buy Ostomy belts from top manufacturers like Nu-Hope, Marlen Manufacturing, Perma-Type, Coloplast, ConvaTec and more to support the weight of your ostomy appliances at HPFY.
