Who Can Use the Pouch Support Belt
Who Can Use The Support Belt?
The Pouch Support is adaptable for either right or left side stomas and is used by colostomy, ileostomy, or urostomy wearers who use a standard size collection pouch. It may be used with either one-piece or two-piece pouch systems. Simply participate in life’s activities with comfort and confidence.
“I have always worn my pouch vertically. How can it fill properly and not affect my stoma in the horizontal position?”
The Pouch Support allows the pouch to fill horizontally (without affecting the stoma) the same way it fills while you are sleeping at night. You should empty the pouch when you start to feel the weight of the output which is usually when it gets about one-third full. One-third full is the level at which the pouch manufactures recommend emptying anyway.
