Please note: There are many sizes available to choose from to ensure that the stoma guard will fit the size and
type of your stoma in a discrete fashion without restricing the output from your ostomy. You will be asked
to choose the following:
1) Stoma Clearance:
Stoma clearance this is the depth of the guard and is a function of the stoma's height. Available Options: 0.5", 0.75", 1.00", 1.25", and 1.50".
2) Appliance Size:
Appliance size this is the width of the cup or dome on the stoma guard. This option considers the width or diameter of your stoma. Available Options: 38mm, 45mm, 57mm, 70mm, and 130mm.
3) Guard Size:
Guard size references the overall dimensions of the guard. The recommendation is based on the height of the patient and is available in
seven sizes. For example, a tall individual should order the Tall version, whereas, a shorter person would likely be best fitted with the Regular size.
4) Stoma Side:
Each guard is cut for either a Right or Left Sided ostomy. The angled cut-out ensures proper leg movement when sitting or exersizing.
5) Belt Size:
Belt size is a measure of the patient abdomin at the location of the ostomy. Please use a tape measure and measure the waist size over the ostomy. Do not use your pant size or your natural waistline.
