Hernia Prevention

Q.  A significant number of ostomates develop hernias post surgery. I would like to suggest some abdominal support.

Eakin Support Belts provide complete support to parastomal hernias during periods of physical activity while still having the flexibility to ensure the normal function of the stoma. Please note that the Eakin Support Belts should not be worn constantly or while sleeping.
 
For more information please refer to the Eakin Support Belts product page.

Q.  Some patients would prefer a stoma support belt without a hole.

Eakin Support Belts offer complete support over the whole abdominal area, while remaining flexible enough to allow the stoma will function normally under the belt. As parastomal hernias most often occur at the base, or immediate proximity of the stoma, logically this is the main area where support is needed. Previously it was felt it was necessary that a hole should be made for the pouch to protrude, however, it is now thought that this may in fact worsen the condition and is therefore not recommended.

Q.  Many patients prefer a support belt made from breathable fabric.

Eakin Support Belts are manufactured from a unique material called Isoflex. This is a lightweight, breathable fabric, providing firm support, yet it is comfortable in hot, humid conditions.
