Gordon Scott, inventor of Ostomy Armor.
I know what it’s like to have an ostomy. I was a soldier in the U.S Army Special Forces (SFGA 7th, 10th, 12th, 19th 20th) and I developed colon cancer. Like many people in that situation, I thought my life was over. The pain, the leaks, the poop bombs! It was not pretty. I knew that I could not continue with the equipment that had been provided to me. And I was determined not to give up. So I designed OSTOMY ARMOR.
I quickly found out that many other people with an ostomy were in the same situation: they just wanted to lead a normal life.
I designed Ostomy Armor so that people with an ostomy could do those simple things that people take for granted. Like getting out of bed without the barrier leaking. Getting into a car without a leak ruining clothing. Putting on jeans and a belt without pain. Using a seat-belt without pain. Falling over. Rolling over in bed without the bag popping off and making a mess.
That’s everyday life; I also have another life. I was accustomed to hiking, backpacking, rock-climbing, riding motor-cycles, being a soldier and generally being super-active. I lead a rugged lifestyle and I didn’t want to give up any part of my life. I wanted my life back!
You don’t have to be as active as I am to benefit from using OSTOMY ARMOR™.
OSTOMY ARMOR™ gives you confidence by maintaining your barrier or appliance in the position it needs to be and keeps that all-important seal regardless of how you move or what you want to do. And because it’s made from aerospace materials, the patented design allows for waste to move as it normally does, as well as providing additional protection for your pouch. Lightweight, concealable, you’ll find yourself doing all sorts of things, never realizing that you have it on. Other people won’t realize that you have it on either!
OSTOMY ARMOR™ was rigorously tested for over three years under the most demanding conditions. Results showed no pull-a-ways, leaks, blowouts, hernias or other interstomal problems. Additionally, it was found that appliances stayed in place, functioning properly over twice as long as without the Armor. When you are wearing Ostomy Armor, you can truly Take Your Life Back!
That is our motto and our mission: to help ostomates get back to the life that they want to lead. I don’t put up with leaks and pain and you don’t have to either. I am passionate about the quality of our products and am extremely proud to bring you products that last for years. Our products work amazingly well. The most gratifying part of running my business is when customers tell me how happy they are with their Armor. We have been in business since 2006 and have thousands of of happy customers. Ostomy Armor is made with rigorous attention to quality and detail. If it’s not 100%, we don’t ship it.
