Video – Ostomy Leak Prevention?
In this video, Christy uses the Equalizer to help make her ostomy wafer stick to her skin better. Watch her change her ostomy appliance.
The equalizer is a fantastic product. It does everything claimed and I certainly feel more relaxed if I’m out and about for extended periods. Protection is brilliant. I’m lucky and never had a problem but know it was an accident waiting to happen. I do feel that stoma guard has given me even more confidence.
Overall, it’s a wonderful product that I think would benefit all Ostomates.

I wanted to let you know that I am very impressed with the Stoma guard product you designed. I have only had my permanent ileostmy for a few months and am still getting used to it. The guard gives me an added confidence when I am working on a project around the house that requires lifting or constant contact with building material. I also have more confidence wearing a belt for stoma care with my pants and not having to worry that I am pressing down on my stoma.
It is clear you put a lot of thought in your product and I want to thank you for the relief you have brought me.

I feel very comfortable with it on and I feel very protected. I really enjoy having it and feel confident when out in public knowing that I have my stomaplex ostomy protector on.
I want to thank you for your product, the Stoma Guard.
I had surgery in November 2011 for a total colectomy with Brooke Ileostomy, and at 39 I was horrified I would not be able to do all the things I love to do; motorcross, hiking, hunting, softball, football, etc. I was in a funk realizing I would be disfigured and unable to enjoy life again. After being referred to your site, I saw that I may possibly be able to continue having a “normal” life again. My father purchased the guard as a present for me the 1st week I was home from the hospital, and it arrived very quickly.
I now wear the belt for stoma care as long as I comfortably can. I am still pretty sore from the surgery (8 weeks ago today) so I can only wear it for 3 or 4 hours at a time, but when I do I am confident I am covered. It’s to the point that I don’t feel comfortable without it. I am anxious for the darned stitches to heal and heal quickly, so I can wear it all the time! This is a life-saving product, as it has built my self-esteem back up to pre surgery levels. Thank you,
Hi Robert (Bob),
I just wanted to thank you for the Active Life Guard from Stomaplex–I am going out of the house more now and this helps me feel more protected and less vulnerable!
I will be going back and forth to/from the Hospital a Lot the next 6 months+ (chemo colon cancer) and this is already making a positive difference in my life (helping me to feel like I am living instead of just “existing”)
Thanks so much for creating/developing this great product and wishing you and yours all the best:)

The Stoma Guard was actually purchased for my husband. I am the research and go to person for his supplies as this is all very new to us. Until we purchased your product, wearing pants was uncomfortable for him. His stoma is right on his waistband and we couldn’t find pants that didn’t bother him. He hasn’t worn it too often as he is still recovering, but when he does he is delighted.
How to prevent leaks.
It is the wonderful product you have sent me.
Thank you so much for all you have done for me with your product, it is wonderful, the new petite size and lower profile makes me feel less self conscience about my appliance, and more secure that I am not going to harm my little stoma with a seat belt or in a crowd by some one getting overly anxious and running over me. Best of all I should be able to enjoy myself more at Disney this summer with my husband and teenage daughters riding the rides and not worrying about what may happen when I get thrown into the bars on the rides. I never had to worry about my ostomy bag leaking.
I will certainly be passing the word on about your stoma care product.
God Bless you!
I really like the stoma guard. It is extremely comfortable and I have not have my usual problems with leakage with this stoma care.
I have had Crohns Disease for many years. In December 2010 I had to have an ostomy due to complications from my disease. My stoma happened to be right where seat belts are when buckled. I found the stoma guards from STOMAPLEX while doing a web search. I called and talked to Bob and decided to order the Freedom-Guard Stoma Guard. I had all kinds of problems with my ostomy bag leaking from leaks to falling off to bumping my stoma. After I ordered my guard my life changed dramatically over night. It is so easy to apply the guard and it protects my stoma so well that I can do things that I thought I would not ever do again. It holds the wafer on 3 sides and I do not have to worry while I do the things that I enjoy doing. One of those things is that I can ride my snowmobile again without worrying about any leak from my bag or any pain when going down a bumpy trail. I also work on cars as a hobby. I can now bump my stoma and I totally forget I have an ostomy. This care has totally changed my life. Thanks Bob
