Video – Prevent Ostomy Leaks
In this video, Christy uses a tool to help prevent stoma leakage developed by Stomaplex to help secure the ostomy wafer to the skin around the stoma better than just pressing it on with your hand. This tool, the Equalizer is flexible which allows it to work with oval shaped stomas. It is reusable and comes in four sizes to help prevent stoma leakage for a wide range of stoma sizes.

To help with ostomy leak prevention, Bob sent me a Stomaplex Equalizer and once I started using it regularly, I realized I cannot ever go without one. I actually now have 2 just in case I forget to pack one if I go somewhere. By not only pressing hard for 30 seconds after you apply the wafer, but also bending the Stomaplex Equalizer and using the sides to press down on every single corner of your ostomy wafer around the stoma (no matter how your stoma is shaped), the wear time of the wafer easily goes up. I think it doubles my wear time without question. Trying to use my fingers to press the wafer down, etc just doesn’t allow the same sort of equal pressure. Nor does it allow you to do the extra “pressing” from all sides. By using both methods I described, the wear time of the wafer gets DAYS added on. I think it is a must have for anyone with an ostomy.
Oh my goodness Bob!! Thank you so much! I was able to show the ostomy nurses yesterday the products I purchased from you. They were impressed! This morning is the first time I’ll be able to visit my students since my surgery and give them all the biggest hugs without being nervous about holding my tummy and protecting my stoma and preventing ostomy leaks! Bless you and your business! Most grateful to you!
