Our Ostomy Support Belt Makes Living With A Stoma Easier, Since You Don’t Need To Worry About Your Colostomy Bag Moving Around
How To Put On Your Ostomy Support Belt
(It Takes Just A Minute Or Two)
To use your Ostomy Support Belt, first apply your colostomy bag or ileostomy appliance with the pouch positioned horizontally (either across the front of your abdomen or across your side).
Orient your colostomy support belt by simply lining up the pouch opening on the inside of the belt with the appliance location on your abdomen and check that the velcro closures are positioned to be easily reachable so they close and open at your side.
If you find the velcro closures land too far towards your back to easily reach, simply rotate the belt 180 degrees and the velcro closures should be more easily accessible near your other side. Our Ostomy Support Belt is designed for people who wear their appliance on either side of their abdomen.
Reach through one of the belt's zippered openings and guide your colostomy bag through the circular opening and into the belt's pouch area. If you first fold the back and sides of your colostomy bag over onto itself, it may help you guide it through the opening.
Once the elastic ring of the appliance opening is past your colostomy bag and around the neck of your appliance, loosely join the first two velcro closures on your ostomy support belt. Then, reach into either zippered opening to flatten and smooth out your colostomy or ileostomy bag, inside of the pouch area.
Once your colostomy bag is comfortably positioned, close both zippers. You can now adjust the belt's first two velcro closures to the desired tightness and then add and tighten the third closure for added comfort and security.
Use the zippers to access and empty your collection pouch, without having to remove your Ostomy Support Belt.
Our Ostomy Support Belt fits comfortably and inconspicuously under all types of clothing; keeping your colostomy bag secure and concealed so no one else will notice.
You are now ready to go out, socialize and participate in the activities you truly enjoy.
