Studies show that Parastomal Hernias are becoming a continuous problem for some people following Ostomy surgery; this can lead to NHS re-admissions and sometimes further surgery.
Research is showing that by introducing a simple prevention program with advice to wear support for heavy lifting for one year post Ostomy Surgery will significantly reduce the incidence of Parastomal Hernias.
Our product is made to provide even support over the Stoma and Hernia preventing pressure directly on the Stoma which can cause your appliance to leak.
Our products are extremely comfortable and more importantly made from breathable fabrics that will also reduce sweating and therefor skin irritation. To extend the wearing time of your products you can also wear safely over your own underwear. Otherwise, our Hernia Support Vest can be worn directly onto naked skin.
Hernia underwear should be applied, by simple inserting both legs into the garment and pull up over your Stoma appliance. The garment will support your Hernia, Stoma and Abdomen equally.
Hernia Support Vest, should be applied over the head, placing both arms in the arm holes provided and pulling the garment down the abdomen and over the hernia and stoma.
All items carry the CE security mark, that mean we conform to the Medical Devices Directive 2007/47/EC and Conformity Assessment.
As with all underwear and support vests, special care and attention should be taken when washing your garment.
Make sure you wash dark colours separately and wash at 40 Degrees. Do not tumble dry, bleach, or dry clean any of these items.
