Ostomy Armor works like no other – Anyone with an ostomy, from toddlers to the elderly, will need to purchase Ostomy Armor products. Whether you lead a “daredevil” lifestyle or are in a wheelchair or bed, Ostomy Armor works! Whatever your lifestyle, whether you have one or two stomas, or one stoma and a hernia, our ostomy support belts and hernia support will restore your quality of life. Our belts do not stretch, wear out, or cut in. They are very concealable, comfortable, and offer superior protection.

- Frequent barrier changes
- Bag / pouch popping off or being pulled off
- Associated skin irritations
It also eliminates pain caused by:
- Shopping carts
- Jumping dogs
- Anything that can bump into your stoma
OSTOMY ARMOR WORKS
The armor works by:
- Maintaining a consistent pressure on the barrier/baseplate/flange
- Maintaining the seal on the barrier
The barrier is flat, and the abdomen is not – the barrier will not maintain a good seal unless there is something on top if it, holding that concentric pressure over the uneven abdomen. Most people have scar tissue that also causes the barrier to fail.
The Armor provides:
- A protective shield against bumps and bangs
- A protective barrier.
- Foam padding to absorb the impact
Without protecting the stoma, an accident could take you to the hospital. Our customers have survived being dragged along the ground and crashing from a motorcycle. Their Armor was unscathed and so were their stomas. When is an accident going to happen to you?
The best way to reduce skin irritation is to:
- Reduce the amount of waste on the skin
- Reduce the frequency of barrier changes
- Reduce moisture around the barrier
Waste Wicks also aids in this by reducing the moisture in the area. As a result, you will prolong the life of the barrier and reduce the amount of irritation from frequent changes and using wipes. Other companies will try and sell you paste and other goop to help your barrier maintain the seal. When you add chemicals to irritated skin, it can only get worse. Chemicals, irritated skin and waste are not a good combination.
With Ostomy Armor in place, the bag cannot pop off. So whether you get tangled in the sheets, or waste makes the bag heavy, the bag cannot pop off. Many people believe that when the bag comes off, it’s the fault of the bag. A heavy bag will come off unless it’s held in place.
Some customers with dementia (Alzheimers is one form of this) remove their bag at inconvenient times. We can place the buckle of the Armor behind the back, so that only a caregiver can remove it to change the appliance. And with the Armor in place, the patient cannot pull the bag off. This process has been tested and proven! We do this and many other custom adjustments at no extra cost.
When you reduce the distance that your muscles can stretch and provide firm support, the likelihood of a hernia is reduced. If your muscles can stretch and bulge, so will the mechanisms that cause hernias. Our customers lift extremely heavy items on a regular and consistent basis (whether for work or fun). After years and years of heavy lifting, customers do not report any hernias. Many customers tell us that their existing hernia has reduced significantly after wearing the Armor. Anything stretchy will not prevent hernias.
Most noteworthy, Ostomy Armor will NOT hurt your stoma. People wear Ostomy Armor 24/7, which sharply reduces pain from bumps and does not put pressure on the stoma. We have not had any reports of pressure ulcers, and customers wear the Armor for years and years, day in and day out.
If your nurse or doctor:
- Did not recommend the Armor
- Told you it would not work
- Said it looked or felt uncomfortable
- Said it was bulky…
…you must ask yourself: Does your nurse or doctor live with a stoma on their side, day after day? We truly understand life with an ostomy — all our products were designed by a person with an ostomy who uses the products every day. We have hundreds of customers who will tell you that Ostomy Armor does work and is comfortable. These products have been tried and tested, and positively reviewed!
As with any product, your choices will determine what is important to you. If you value reducing the pain and leakage associated with a stoma, Ostomy Armor will provide years of support and assistance. And Ostomy Armor truly lasts for years – for example, if you purchase the Heavy Duty model with a Cobra buckle, that amounts to .49 cents per day for a year. Over two years, that’s 25 cents per day. It does not stretch out of place or wear out, although many customers chose to overhaul their Armor after years of use. And reducing the number of times you change your barrier will save you money. Who wouldn’t want to reduce pain and leaks, and save money too?
