Stoma Guards: Protect your ostomy with the best stoma guard.

  • My first interaction with Bob was shortly after my surgical procedure (end ileostomy creation). This was a very emotional time for me, and I couldn’t have had someone better to talk to than Bob. Having undergone a similar procedure, Bob was very familiar with what I had gone through. This interaction was about 5 years ago now, and I still clearly remember his high level of care, empathy, and support. He spoke to me as a friend, not a client. Not only did Bob provide encouragement and hope during this difficult time, but he also provided a great solution to a common problem shared by those with an ostomy. Being a medical professional, I am expected to dress in different types of clothing. This attire varies from scrubs, to formal wear (dress shirt tucked into dress pants). The latter posed quite a problem for me before coming across Bob’s stoma guards. Words cannot explain how liberating this product has been, and what a blessing it has been in my life. Simply put, it made me feel normal again. Not only do these stoma guards allow me to tuck in my shirts and wear dress pants with no visible bulge, but they also effectively muffle any embarrassing noise anyone with an ostomy can relate to. I also find myself wearing my stoma guards during rigorous physical activities, solely for protection. The latest example is my recent ski trip, where I wore this guard underneath my snow pants to shield any trauma to the area in case of a fall, etc. This product is quite durable. I still have my first stoma guard, which is over 5 years old now. However, I have chosen to upgrade since then due to Bob’s continuous improvements in design (slimmer profile and improved materials). As a side note, the equalizer is a must. I have purchased both sizes, and I always use them during appliance changes. This product has made a noticeable improvement in the “life-time” of an appliance before another change is required. Finally, I would like to personally thank Bob for all he has done for me. He has been caring, supportive, and exceptionally helpful since our initial interaction. His customer service and confidence in his product is unparalleled. His engineering background and creativity has made a huge impact in my life. I do not wish anything but the best of health for all people, however, I am grateful to have Bob as a fellow ostomy carrier for the contributions he has made towards our quality of life. Sincerely, MS (CANADA)

In the following videos, Bob Zurowski (the owner of Stomaplex), will demonstrate and talk about the benefits of each of the different types of ostomy belts offered. Watch and learn to determine which stoma guard is best for your individual needs. There are three types of guards to choose from.

Pure-Comfor ATX:

The Pure Comfort ATX is the thinnest and lightest stoma guard available. The plastic stoma shield is covered with a durable, premium grade calfskin with an inner padding of calfskin. This stoma guard is the most comfortable and most discrete product to protect your ostomy.

The Freedom-Guard ATX is deigned to be the toughest and stongest stoma guard. The FDA approved rubber coating and padding makes this protector completely non-absorbant therefore super easy to clean. This stoma guard is great for swimming and athletics.

•   A friendly reminder, please remember to always wear your seatbelt in the car.

The Pure-Comfort ATX: Ostomy Belt.

Watch Bob tighten his pants directly over his stoma. When you need to wear a suit or any special clothing with an ostomy, the main concern is will the stoma's flow be restricted by your clothing. With the Stomaplex ostomy belt the flow will continue under the stoma guard. This will allow you to tighten your belt on your trousers as tight as you want right over the stoma. it is important to dress properly for work in the office if you have an ostomy.

The Freedom-Guard ATX: Ostomy Belt.

Many of us with an ostomy are very concerned about developing a parastomal hernia especially during high activity like sports. This is not only uncomfortable but also unsightly. In addition, these parastomal hernias are not always repairable. If you are concerned, then I recommend the optional hernia ostomy belt from Stomaplex (shown in the video below). This wider belt is designed to support your abdomen with greater support than the standard Stomaplex ostomy belt. Many ostomates also choose this wider belt to hold the Stomaplex stoma guard in place when active with contact sports like hockey, roller derby, football, and soccer.

The Freedom-Guard GTX: Ostomy Belt.

Many guys are wondering how are they going to wear their jeans and pants after ostomy surgery. It seems like the belt on a pair of pants always interferes with the stoma. There is never a good location to place the ostomy. Wherever the stoma is, the waistband on your jeans, dress pants seems to cross over the stoma or restricts the flow of output from the stoma to the bottom of the ostomy pouch. What is needed is a stoma guard that covers over the ostomy, protecting it from contact, while still allowing the stoma to flow. The Stomaplex stoma guards and ostomy belts allow this to happen. With the Stomaplex Ostomy Belt, you'll be able to tuck your shirt into your pants. With the Stomaplex ostomy belt and Guard you don't need to worry about ostomy leaks that are caused by your clothing restricting the flow.
