Prevent Parastomal HerniasMost people agree that (parastomal) hernias are a regular occurrence with an ostomy. Some physicians put the number at 60-100%.
Ostomy Armor can help. But you don't have to take our word for it. Customer Paul Stewart lifts large weights on a regular basis without a hernia. Not into weights? What about groceries? Children? Heavy equipment? With Ostomy Armor, there is NOWHERE for a hernia to go.
How a Hernia Starts
A hernia develops at a stoma site due to the weakness in the musculature. Many health professionals warn against lifting anything over 5-10 lbs. Once a hernia develops (a round bulge under the skin, similar in shape to a ball under the skin), barriers/flanges/baseplates have a harder time adhering to the rounded surface.
Ostomy Armor has over a decade of customer feedback and hundreds of long-term, repeat customers. Our customers include weight lifters, firefighters, parents, backpackers and many others who routinely lift heavy weights as part of their everyday life, sport or job. Ostomy Armor customers are not developing hernias when wearing the Armor 24/7. The customer below, Lela K, lifted Atlas stones to win a Strong Man/Woman contest. Below on the right is her abdomen afterwards, with NO hernias.

- My name is Dean, I am a Canadian Police Officer, father and husband. I live a very active lifestyle and like many people in my profession worked myself nearly to death. Being stubborn I ignored early warning signs and eventually fell very ill and was diagnosed with UC in 2017. The next full year was an extreme battle with the disease and my health deteriorated rapidly. I received emergency surgery to remove my colon in 2018 and ended up with an ileostomy. For a year of recovery I battled with my mental health and physical health under the weight of my world crashing down on me. While still in the early stages of recovery I discovered Ostomy Armor. I ordered one (Titanium Max) and started wearing it ASAP. Wearing this product through my recovery boosted my confidence and allowed me to begin healing mentally allowing me to kick my physical fitness into high gear. 2019 I returned to work and have been since able to do the things that are required of me in my profession as a police tactical team member. My Ostomy is a bit higher to allow me to wear my gun belt and wearing plates/body armor is no issue either. Adapt and Overcome.Thank you Ostomy Armor for making such a great product.
In 8 days I had no failures, no issues, no problems. I cannot tell you the last time I’ve gone 8 days without any kind of problems, leaks, etc etc. I had a great week with everything doing its job perfectly! We were sweaty, dirty, climbing in, around, over, under, pushing, pulling, leaning on repeatedly you name it and had no issues. I cannot recall the last time I went days without worrying about the damn wafer, bag, etc etc. For me this was a big return to my old normal. Thanks so much for some great products!
"Thank you for your product without it I don't know where I would be!!! When I first found out the news was devastating and like anyone else I started thinking how can I still do my job. Still to this day, I can say that because of your product I am still able to do my every day functions as a police officer."
Hi Gordon. I just wanted to thank you for making such a wonderful product. After my husband's surgery four years ago, he bought two belts from another company, but he was experiencing leaks which made him afraid to go places and do things such as ride his motorcycle. He needed to have a complete change of clothing with him when he went somewhere, in case he had a leak. He has been using Ostomy Armor for a couple of years now, and now he doesn't have leaks. What a relief! Thanks again!
