To measure for size; measure all the way around your body 1″ above Stoma and 1″ below Stoma. (example = 33″ above and 35″ below . . . you would order a 34″ size)
To use your Ostomy Support Belt, apply your colostomy bag or ileostomy appliance with the pouch positioned horizontally. (Position it across the front of your abdomen) Adjust your colostomy support belt by lining up the pouch opening on the inside of the belt with the appliance location on your abdomen. If you fold back the sides of your colostomy bag over onto itself first, it may help you guide it through the opening.
Reach through the belt’s zippered opening and guide your colostomy bag through the circular opening and into the pouch area of the belt.
Once the elastic ring of the appliance opening is past your colostomy bag and around the neck of your appliance, loosely fasten together the Velcro® closure on your ostomy support belt.
Once your colostomy bag is comfortably positioned, close the zipper. Now you can adjust the belt’s Velcro® closure to your preferred tension for comfort and security.
Use the zipper to access and empty your collection pouch, without having to remove your Ostomy Support Belt.
