OSTOMY ARMOR SIZING:
Learn how to properly size your new Armor here. With our ostomy sizing guidelines and instructions, you can rest assured you will receive the correct sized Armor right away. It is imperative that your Armor is sized correctly so it fits correctly. If you receive Armor that does not fit correctly, we will gladly exchange for the proper one. Please note, any returned / exchanged products must be un-used.
“Will it fit me? This is one of the most frequently asked questions we hear. The Armor will fit most stomas. However, we can fit anyone.
Petite / Small Framed Adults: Available in limited colors, the Petite Armor is made for very small frames. The front measures 5×3″. Best fit for: Waist of less than 25″.
The belt is made for your waist size/around where your stoma is. (Your regular waist size might not be the same as around your torso at the stoma level. Please measure where your stoma is.) It includes room to lose and gain weight. If you gain or lose a lot (more than 5-6”), send it back and we will remake the belt. There will be a $20 fee for this.
Foam backing . The back of the Armor has a comfortable foam backing that absorbs impact.This fits on top of the barrier/baseplate/flange and has a channel to allow waste to drain. You have two choices of cut-out size:
The Standard cutout is 1 3/4″ (45mm) at the widest part.
The Wide cutout is 2″ (50mm) at the widest part. The length of the cutout is 3″ (77mm). You only need the wide cutout IF THE STOMA ITSELF is 2″ across. You will not need the wider channel if your barrier is 2″ across. If you have any questions about the best fit, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
The Thin Foam is 12mm (approx 1/2″) thick. This thin profile works well for urostomies, for a stoma with a tiny profile, or if the very least amount of protection is needed.
The Standard Foam size is 18 mm (approx 3/4″) thick. This accommodates most stomas that protrude less than 1.5″. The Standard Foam accommodates most stomas.
The Deep Foam is 25 mm (approx 1″) thick. This accommodates stomas that protrude more. This is also the choice if you may be taking part in a high-impact sport or occupation.
The Foam: After years of testing, our foam is “just right.” Not too hard, not too soft. It is comfortable, but will not compress excessively or wear out. It will not allow any moisture to absorb and it’s super easy to clean. And it’s covered with a layer of non-slip, non-absorbent material for even greater grip.
If you think you need other dimensions, call us. We have made Armor for huge stomas and we can probably fit you.
The Front of the Heavy Duty Armor is 6.5” across by 3 3/4 “ deep.
The Titanium is 6” x 3.5. Both have a curve to accommodate the body shape and both flex comfortably.
PLEASE NOTE: If you measure incorrectly and your belt doesn’t fit, there will be a $20 fee to make a new belt. Please measure twice to ensure a correct measurement. Watch the video: measure around the stoma area, pull the tape measure tight, and then measure again. Please measure where your stoma is, which may be a different place and size than your normal waist/trousers/pants size.
