NHS Hernia Supportwear:
You are entitled to apply annually, via the NHS, for three Hernia Supportwear. (For the women we have Supportwear Long-Leg Boxers, Unisex Vests, Female-style Vests, Pantie Girdles and Short-Leg Briefs.) This Hernia Supportwear is only available on the NHS to those customers living in the UK:
The Vanilla Blush Hernia Supportwear is a very comfortable medical device with an equivalent strength to the Hernia Belt. It has a double aim: firstly, to help prevent the development of Parastomal Hernias; secondly, to offer support to those already living with a Parastomal Hernia.
Parastomal Hernias threaten to be a problem for some following Ostomy surgery. This can offten lead to NHS re-admission and even further surgery. However, research suggests that by investing in cost-efficient Hernia Supportwear after Ostomy surgery will significantly reduce the chances of developing a Parastomal Hernia.
Our Long-Leg Boxer Supportwear will not slip or roll down. It will provide support over the abdomen, or even a Hernia, which prevents pressure directly on the Stoma and thus reducing the chances of leaks. The Long-Leg Boxer is extremely comfortable - and made from breathable fabric that will also reduce sweating and skin irritations.
The Long-Leg Boxer Supportwear can also be purchased privately to top up your NHS quota.
All items carry the security of the CE MARK, which means we conform to the Medical Devices Directive and conformity Assessment.
As with all underwear, special care and attention should be taken when washing your garment.
Make sure you wash dark colours separately and wash at 40 Degree. Do not tumble dry, bleach, or dry clean any of these items. Iron at a cool temperature.
Also available on the NHS.
