“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 from toddlers to adults.
Which one is right for me?
Petite Armor: Best fit for:
- Waist of less than 25″
- The stoma is higher up, close to the rib cage.
- Customers in wheelchairs.
Titanium Max: 6” x 3.5. Best fit for:
- High impact sports or occupations, such as law enforcement, firefighter, motorcycle sports, rugby/football.
- Occupations or activities with constant bending/crouching/twisting for greater range of motion
- Activities in extreme temperatures
- Pre-existing hernias up to 3″ high.
Heavy Duty: 6.5” across by 3 3/4 “ deep. Best fit for:
- Everyday life and activities: seatbelts, shopping carts, children, pets, crowds.
- Office work, shopping, relaxing.
- Customers on a budget.
- Pre-existing hernias up to 3″ high. Both have a curve to accommodate the body shape and both flex comfortably.
Large Hernia Armor: Best fit for:
- Pre-existing hernias that are over 3″ high
- Waist measurements over 45″
Hernias: If you are measuring over a hernia/parastomal hernia that has already developed, please estimate how many inches you can push or pull the hernia back in. Please include this information in the “notes”section of the ordering form. Or, if you wish, you can place your order by phone: 719 689 0203. Ostomy Armor will hold a hernia in place securely and comfortably.
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, NOT just your pants/trousers/normal waist size. ) A video is available to demonstrate how to measure. Your product will have room to lose and gain weight. If you gain or lose so much that it no longer fits, contact us, send it back and we will remake the belt. Fees for a re-make start at $25, and includes shipping. Most re-makes can be done for this fee but special custom requests may incur extra costs.
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. This two inch opening will fit over most barriers. 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.
Thin Foam: .5″ Best for tiny stomas that do not protrude or only protrude a little.
Standard Foam: .75″. Best for the majority of stomas. A stoma that retracts to under an inch will fit comfortably under the Standard Foam.
Deep Foam: 1″. If the stoma is well over an inch and DOES NOT RETRACT, the Deep foam may be the best choice. Your stoma needs room to do it’s job. Be aware that the Deep Foam will have a more noticeable profile.
